Do you love music? Do you have Hoya pride? If you answered yes to both of those questions, Grasping At Straws needs your help! The student band, featuring Anatole Doak (COL ’12) and Matt Galizia (COL ’12) as well as Charlie Burgoyne and Chris Harold, is playing in a Battle of the Bands this Sunday 2/19. Depending on how many tickets they sell by Thursday, they’ll either get to play a smaller venue like DC9 or the Rock N Roll Hotel or the ultimate DC stage at the 9:30 Club. Additionally, the winner of each venue will get 15 hours of studio time and $500. Watch this acoustic session we did with Anatole and if you’re interested in helping these guys to the big stage at the 9:30 Club, make sure to check out the details after the jump!
