Shepparton’s McIntosh Centre will filled with the sounds of local music tonight thanks to the annual FReeZA Push Heat Battle of the Bands.

Six up and coming bands will go head to head for the chance to take out the top spot, which will take them to the regional finals and ultimately the chance to play at the Push Over all-ages festival next year.

Today, The News takes a look at the six bands – Hang the Traitor, Past Present, Abandoned Elevator, Majesty Complex, Top Knot and Yolk.

The event is hosted by local youth organisation Word and Mouth and last year’s Battle was attended by more than 250 people.

The Battle of the Bands will take place tonight from 6pm to 11pm at the McIntosh Centre at the Shepparton Showgrounds.

Entry is $5 and all Word and Mouth events are fully supervised and are drug, smoke and alcohol free. No passouts are available on the night.

For more information, phone Word and Mouth project manager Jim Gow on 0437 771 114.
