Trident United Way Battle of the Bands is an annual event “serves to raise awareness about the work of Trident United Way and its nonprofit partners within the tri-county area that rely on volunteers and donors to make our community a better place for all of us to live.” Their third annual Battle of the Bands blowout is set for Thurs. Oct. 2 at the Music Farm (32 Ann Street).

Have you ever seen an orthopedic surgeon wail on guitar or maybe a physicist go all out with a drum solo? Probably not. If this sounds intriguing to you then you are in for a treat at the Trident United Way’s "Battle of the Bands: Professionals Division" event. Bands comprised of practically every profession from lawyers to executive assistants will compete against each other and showcase some underground talent from the Lowcountry.

Some groups are already active in the scene, but others have formed, practiced, and came up with killer names just for the event. Each band, as a requirement to battle, has chosen a partner organization with which to complete a volunteer program or tour of their facility. Not only will there be entertainment, food, and drinks, but the Trident United Way will be raising awareness about their work and other non-profits that rely on volunteers and donors. Bring your business card and network with some of Charleston’s finest businessmen while watching a rocking live show. It’s the best of both worlds.

The complete lineup includes Rocky Mountain Oysters, The Average Savage, Skye Paige & The Original Recipe, Hoekstra, Gross Negligence, On the Hunt (last year's winner), Hundred Hands Down, Blue Moon Union, Headrush, TWS & Friends, The Bandicoots, Henry’s Attic, and Help! Admission is $10 and music starts at 6 p.m.
