Behind the Music: Meet the five bands competing in the 2013 Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hundreds of musical acts entered. Just over 60 were selected. They competed for the title in each of New York City's boroughs, made it through two rounds of voting. And now, just five bands - and one Wild Card pick - are standing in the 2013 Battle of the Boroughs talent quest.

Before they return to The Greene Space stage on Friday, June 21, catch up with all the contestants as they take you behind the music. From a trio of violinist brothers originally from Mexico to a pop rock band who met in college and claim a pink piano dinosaur as their mascot and spiritual advisor, here are there stories!

Watch! Catch all of the great music and see who won the 2013 Ultimate Battle crown
