IN AN EFFORT TO GIVE BACK TO A COMMUNITY THAT HAS SUPPORTED US SO MUCH OVER THE YEARS, WE ARE Providing the opportunity for one young band (age 18 and under) to perform AS THE OPENING ACT PRIOR TO SAID THE WHALE AND THE BEACHES ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2019 AT MALKIN BOWL

The winning band will be determined by a combination of public voting and internal adjudicating by Said The Whale. To enter, bands from Lower Mainland BC must submit a video of a live performance of an original song. (Video/sound quality will NOT be judged, rather, focus will be placed on songwriting and originality). Submissions are open NOW until June 7th. The first round of daily voting begins June 10 and closes June 30. Once the top 20 finalists are announced on July 1st, there will be a second round of voting between July 1st and 31st. The winner will be announced August 12th, 2019.

Top 20 artists will be featured on a compilation CD to be distributed to every attendee at Malkin Bowl on September 6th. In addition to that, we will be setting up an information kiosk at the concert to showcase each act.
