And the Winner is...


This past weekend, second annual Battle of the Bands took place at Tioga Town Center. The event was held to benefit The Education Foundation's Take Stock in Children, which provides opportunities to low-income students. The free event had a great turnout, drawing a crowd with great food, drinks, and more. Latchkey, SYZYGY, Dr/veaway, The Ben Carter Band, Idylwild, and Gritt rounded out the all-star lineup!

The event was a hit! Thanks to everyone who came out to support the bands and the Education Foundation! The Gainesville community came together and raised $30,000 for Take Stock in Children!

Congratulations to the winner, Gritt, and the people's choice winner, Dr/veaway
