We’re not quite at the halfway point yet, but a lot of Queen City Rocks has already passed us by.
Every year, 104.9 The Wolf gathers local bands together for a huge battle of the bands spanning weeks. For the fourth year running, Regina’s rock station is giving out prize packages including cash from Jim Beam, gift cards to Long and McQuade and Taco del Mar, and tons of airplay on the Wolf.
Weeks 1 and 2 have already taken place. Amongst crowded fields of talent, Circles and Revolution and League of Wolves were the two winners who’ll be moving on to the Grande Finale.
That still leaves an awful lot of music left to go, with Week 3 happening on February 26 –– the only Friday date this year –– and Week 4 on March 3, with the Grande Finale coming up on March 24.
If you’re looking for action past, present, and upcoming, there are plenty of places to find that! Kamiki Piks Photography covered the second week of QCR this year, and has an album up on Facebook. The Wolf posted a video of just how they figured out the playing order for Week 3. And be sure to keep an eye on the #QCR16 hashtag for continuing updates.
(Also, while you’re at, why not follow us on Instagram? We’ve posted some of our photos from QCR and pop in with show updates on occasion!)
Queen City Rocks continues on February 26 and March 3 and 24. Doors for each night are at 7 p.m. Show at 8 p.m. $10 at the door with funds going towards Music Heals, a charity devoted to music therapy. All ages and licensed.
