Thank you for voting The Big Payback into the final round of Band to Band Combat! The four finalists will perform for a live audience on Thursday at the Frequency to determine the champion. We will be the first band to play, and our 30-minute set will begin no later than 9:00! We recommend showing up at 8:30 because TBP is best enjoyed after consuming at least one alcoholic beverage.

The other 3 bands are El Valiente, TL;DR, and Sky Road Fly. We will be hanging out and watching their sets, and we invite you to join us ( and maybe heckle the other bands a little). But seriously, it'll be a good time. Come support local music and journalism! There is a $5 cover.

If you haven't already, RSVP on the event page. We're looking forward to seeing you there.


 We made it to the final 4 in the Daily Page's Band to Band combat thanks to YOU! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at the Frequency on December 15! We'll give you more details when we get them ourselves. 

Some new January and February dates have been added to the shows page. Be sure to mark them on your calendar and begin thinking of excuses to take off work or school the following days.


 We have made it to Round 3 in the Band to Band contest! That means we need you to vote for us just one more time. The polls close on Wednesday! Also, we got a nod in this article about the event.


 The Big Payback has advanced to Round 2 in the Band to Band contest! Thanks to everyone who voted! If you registered to vote in the first round, you can use the same name and password to vote in this round. If you haven't registered yet, it takes about 5 seconds. Let's see if we can do it again!


 Please take a moment to vote for The Big Payback in the Daily Page's Band to Band contest! This event is put on by the Daily Page to promote Madison's live music scene, and every artist competing is local. It only takes a few seconds to register, and the first round of voting ends on Wednesday, November 16!

We are currently locking down dates, booking gigs, and writing new tunes, so we will have more news very soon. A big thank you to everyone who has given us feedback on our CD, Overture. We'll see you soon!
