Having worked their way through hundreds of demos, the judges have selected the 12 acts who’ll be slugging it out in this year’s Bank of Ireland National Student Music Awards.
The regional heats pan out as follows:
March 8 @ UCD, Dublin – Bravest Kid In School, Lost, Reemo (pictured), Hidden From Nowhere & special guests Aslan
March 15 @ Cyprus Avenue, Cork – Roper, Monitor, Autobahn, The Citizen & special guests Turn
March 22 @ Cuba, Galway – The Roll Models, The Reverb, Lotus Lullaby, A Band Called Wanda & special guests Turn
The top two acts each night go through to the Grand Final taking place on April 12 in Dublin’s Temple Bar Music Centre.
The victors will bag themselves recording and rehearsal time, CD duplication and a place in the UK NMSA Final, which was won last year by Dublin’s Delorentos.
Needless to say, Hotpress will be at ringside for all the gigs.
