This past Sunday night, four bands competed in the fourth preliminary round of the CV Music Showcase at The Hood. Robotic Humans, Murkocet, Vextemper and 10 Fold, all brought their A-game, but in the end it was Murkocet that won the battle, $200.00 cash and advanced to the Finals.

The judges for the evening were Arthur Seay (HOBP, Unida, Ape Shit and producer at Bitter Sands Studios), Nick Flores (Frontman for the band Se7en4) and Friday Jones (metal tattoo artist to the stars with her own TV show “Tattoos After Dark” on Oxygen). The judges were as entertaining as the bands.

Murkocet, a hard driving metal band, will move on to the Finals on May 7, where they will compete against Bridger, Wicked Jed, Razor J and The Blades, and the band that wins the next preliminary showcase on Sunday, April 3, also at The Hood.

Thank you to the judges, the bands, the crowd that came out to support, Jon Ballard our awesome sound man, Scott Pam Photography, and Brad Guth and Eddie Pizarro, owners of The Hood, for taking such good care of all of us!
