The Luxury won the first round of WBCN's 31st Annual Rock N' Roll Rumble

My photos and some videos of WBCN’s 31st Annual Rock N’ Roll Rumble are being published on the always awesome Ryan Spaulding’s music blog at Ryan’s Smashing Life. Here’s our coverage of Sunday night’s festivities.

The Rock N’ Roll Rumble is a “battle of the bands” style competition for Boston area bands. Anngelle Wood, WBCN DJ of weekly show Boston Emissions is the host of this year’s festivities. She’s done a great job putting it together. Most battle of the bands do not have the best reputation but WBCN’s annual event is one of the good ones.

The winners so far include The Luxury who won on April 5th and Gravehaven who won on April 6th. Check Ryan’s Smashing Life for the Rumble schedule.
