As a way of nurturing and supporting the talent native to Northeast Ohio, the folks at the concert promotions behemoth Live Nation devote what is traditionally a slow time of the year for concerts to this annual event, a battle of the bands that pits high-school bands against one another in a competition to crown one final winner the best high-school band in the land. Last year, the event returned to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where a handful of bands battled it out each weekend before one winner was crowned in the Final Exam. This year, the event will also take place at the Rock Hall. Every Saturday in January, regional bands will compete before a panel of judges for the right to move on to the "Final Exam," which takes place on Feb. 13 at the Rock Hall. Now in its twentieth year, the event will also feature special appearances by alumni acts who'll perform at the end of each round. (Niesel)
