With a total of 6 bands now in the running, round 2 will be held August 7th & 14th. Again, 3 bands will compete each night with a 1 hour set. One band will be chosen each night for a guaranteed spot in the round 3 (The Finals). 
The Wild Card: There will be 1 spot available in this round as well, where a band that was oh-so-close will be invited into Round 3, The Finals.

ROUND #3 / The Finals: 
Held on August 21st, 3 bands will compete with 1 hour sets in what will be the Finals Round. This is the night, that one and only one band will take home $500 cash and other prizes.
