Laptop Battles!!

Looking for a new music experience? How about competitive music mashing? Laptop Battles may be your thing.
The folks over at Fourthcity.net have been doing Laptop battles for a while now, and if you’ve walked around the Capital Hill or the U District, you’ve seen their flyers everywhere. But you may not have known just exactly what goes on.
Well, it’s like this:

The laptop battle is a competitive event for laptop musicians to match their skills against one another. Battles are chosen randomly and conducted in 3 minute rounds. A panel of judges decides which contestant advances to the next round, single elimination style.
It’s a fusion of sound design, composition and stage performance, and a chance for laptop musicians to prove their skills in battle and develop techniques and strategies

They’re at Lo Fi tonight and The Baltic Room tomorrow, and they’re worth checking out.
