About This Event

Want to see what would happen if the Beatles had grown up in the 1970s punk scene? What if LCD Soundsystem did an all acoustic set? Ever try to play bluegrass with only electronic instruments? For the Flashband Remix showcase, bands will perform their set with songs performed in the style of another genre or combining disparate genres and styles.

Like all our Flashband Showcases, we challenge the participating musicians (most of whom have never met) to make a band in a month. This is their one night only show. 

This show is one third of our 3 year anniversary double header show on April 11. Trio showcase brings together 3 piece one-night bands, this show mashes up genre, and our third theme brings back alumni bands who formed through Flashband and continued gigging. Get all the details and get your tickets here


The Show

All bands will do one fifteen minute set, with at least one new original song and at least one song fitting the showcase theme.
