After claiming victory in Knoxville at Battle of the Bands, Hour Late went on to win an opening act at Rhythm and Brews. Having received news that Downstream would be having a friendly run-off for an opening act, Hour Late jumped on the opportunity to secure the gig.
Competing against another local band on the Facebook, Hour Late took the prize by only 18 votes.
Three local bands, Downstream, Hour Late and River City Hustlers will play at Rhythm and Brews Friday. Tickets are $7 for all 21 and up. The doors will open Friday at 8:30 p.m. with the first band taking the stage at 9:30 p.m.
