Musicians can apply online at www.civl.ca until this Friday, March 7. Battles start March 17 and will continue for four weeks at UFV's Aftermath pub. Three finalists will battle at the Abbotsford Heat game on April 11, with the game audience choosing the winner. The winner will perform at the Abbotsford Arts Council’s Arty Awards on April 12 and receive industry prizes, including videos from Tractorgrease Multimedia.
