Battle of the Bands Preview Rocks on Saturday
A promotional concert takes place at the South Holiday Library from 6 to 10 p.m.
Want to hear some of the bands in Rockus Maximus XV before the big concert in March?
You’ll get your chance this Saturday when four of the eight acts take to the stage at the South Holiday Library, 4649 Mile Stretch Drive, from 6 to 10 p.m. The preview concert is free and geared toward teens in grades six and up. The first 50 teens in the door will get free glow sticks.
Rockus Maximus is the Pasco County Library System’s annual battle of the bands. The event pits eight local bands against each other in a competition to win 10 hours of recording time and other prizes. Bands come from Pasco County and beyond and must include a majority of members that are age 21 and under. The competition also includes an online portion, which has a $500 gift card on the line.

The main battle takes place March 23 and another preview concert will be held at the Land O’ Lakes Library on March 9. New Port Richey Patch and Land O’ Lakes Patch are both sponsors of the events along with Rasmussen College, Morrisound Recording and Encore Music.
