Twelve musical acts from across Manhattan competed during a live concert on February 7, 2014. Then, voters picked their top five bands. Now, after a week of voting, there’s only one band standing.
The 2014 Manhattan representative in our Battle of the Boroughs is…5j Barrow! The West Village band will bring their folk/rock/indie sound to the final showdown, the Ultimate Battle of the Boroughs on June 27. They’ll compete against the other borough winners for bragging rights and prizes, including a showcase performance at the world famous Apollo Theater Amateur Night.
Congrats to all the acts who competed!
Next stop in the Battle of the Boroughs: Queens takes the stage on March 7.
