Pedal Challenge

facebook.com/pedalchallengehq

This is not the talent-show lameness or corporate shilling of your typical band battle. It’s a wildly left-field individual music challenge imagined by some of the freakiest minds of the local underground, and it’s won by whoever best combines the ability to work effects pedals and the talent for inspired extemporaneous experimentalism. Past winners of this monthly-ish contest include Dr. Moonstien, Tiny Waves’ Steven Head and Bob on Blonde’s Bob Hershberger. It’s a crazy event that’s as likely to make you laugh as it is to blow your mind.
