Charter assists finalists in preparing videos for final round of voting; Winner to kick off show featuring Panic! At the Disco, Fitz & The Tantrums, Plain White T’s.
SEPTEMBER 12, 2011 – A virtual battle of the bands will give one hometown band the opportunity to take “center stage” and open Charter Center Stage, a music festival featuring national acts Panic! At the Disco, Fitz & The Tantrums, and Plain White T’s. Charter Center Stage, an online battle of the bands competition, will culminate in an outdoor concert on October 15 at Willow Island at Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, and be streamed live on Facebook®.
Serious Clark, a self-described folk rock fusion band from Brevard, NC, entered the contest by submitting a video of the band that was posted on Charter’s website for online fan voting. With streamed videos from more than 300 bands watched by nearly a half-million online fans across the country, Serious Clark garnered enough votes in the initial round of online voting to earn them a place as one of 11 finalists in Charter Center Stage online battle of the bands.
