Before the battle of the bands kicked off— that is, our eight contestants: Atilla, Captain Ahab and the Narwhals, Dishes, Fire in the Churchyard, Instant Tradition, Panda Circus, Royal and Strider — on Friday and Saturday, we got Farmer’s Ball weekend started with a stellar pre-party Thursday night at the Jackpot Music Hall.
The 9 p.m. show featured Farmer’s Ball 2010 winners The Will Nots, plus Nezbeat and Hospital Ships (featured on a little outlet known as NPR here, here and here). It’s hosted by Tyga Style of Team Bear Club
