Chilliwack band Chilled Clarity received plaudits from the judges but they didn't make it into the finals of a Vancouver battle of the bands.
But there is still a chance for Chilliwack secondary school grads Bronsen Rasmussen, Dustin Price and Richard Franklin to get the wild-card entry based on judges scores, fan votes and a 500-word response on why they should make it.
Band Fight involved up-and-coming groups duking it out-in a real boxing ring- for the grand prize of one professionally-recorded song and full radio promotion courtesy of AMP Records and 99.3 The Fox.
Chilled Clarity performed Nov. 14 at Library Square Public House.
Of the bands performance, Phil Lehmann of AMP Records said "Chilled Clarity defiantly has the strongest online fan support out of our top 12 competitors" and that "they gave us one of the most passionate performances of the series so far."
Tara Lett of AMP Records said that "Bronson Rasmussen has a star quality about him that can't be taught."
Vivian Pencz of the Georgia Straight compares Bronson Rasmussen's look to that of Kurt Cobain and said she "appreciated the attempt at instrumental destruction," a reference to the band breaking their own snare while performing.
Scott Alan of CFox said that the "singer has something" and described them as "Good Energy! Raw."
Despite the praise, they didn't make it to the main event on Nov. 28 but the wildcard spot will be announced on Nov. 23.
