Attention Bronx Artists: Rep the BoogieDown in WNYC's Battle of the Boroughs!

WNYC's The Greene Space is currently accepting submissions for their new First Fridays program, Battle of the Boroughs.

Unsigned bands and ensembles, instrumentalists, singers, DJs, spoken word artists and performance artists of all genres are invited to submit applications consisting of a registration form, a digital file of an audio performance, and a high-res photo. On February 22nd, 5-6 artists from each borough will be selected to battle it out in the First Fridays signature series in The Greene Space, which is WNYC's new street-level, state of the art performance venue in Lower Manhattan. The performance schedule is as follows:
  • March 5 at 7 pm BROOKLYN: selected artists from Brooklyn will perform
  • April 2 at 7 pm MANHATTAN: selected artists from Manhattan will perform
  • April 30 at 7 pm BRONX: selected artists from the Bronx will perform
  • May 7 at 7 pm STATEN ISLAND: selected artists from the Staten Island will perform
  • June 4 at 7pm QUEENS: selected artists from Queens will perform
Audience members will vote to determine which performers will go onto the semi-final concert event, Friday, June 18th. A panel of judges will then select the winner of Battle of the Boroughs, who will have the opportunity to perform their very own concert sometime during Summer 2010.
