Looks like East Bay bands are holding their own in independent music contests this summer. In addition to Berkeley band Kaura's current #8 position in the 2007 Lollapalooza Last Band Standing contest (see here), Oakland bands Rosin Coven and the Tongues have earned top-six honors from the editors of Billboard magazine (out of 1,300 entries) in this year's Independent Music World Series West Showcase. The six acts (including Landon from LA, Miki Vale from San Diego, Chris Merritt from Utah, and the Love Me Nots from Phoenix) will compete on Thursday, July 26, at SF club 12 Galaxies, to be named Top Independent Act in the West. The contest is sponsored by media manufacturer Disc Makers.
