The battle culminates in the final round with winners from each borough competing against each other. It's sold out, but you can watch the whole event via live video webcast at thegreenespace.org.

Join us on First Fridays in The Greene Space for a showdown series designed to bring out the best undiscovered bands and ensembles of all genres: instrumentalists, singers, DJs, spoken word artists and performance artists in the five boroughs.
