Night one of the New Noise Santa Barbara/Independent-sponsored Downtown Sound competition features live sets from four of our battle of the band's round one winners, including:

Blue Suns
False Puppet
Islay Street

Admission is $5 in advance, $8 at the door, with all proceeds benefiting the reopening of the Living Room and the New Noise Music Foundation.

All attendees will get to cast a vote for their favorite act.

The two bands to receive the most votes will move on to the finals. (Taking place on Thursday, October 20 at SOhO.)

The winner of the Downtown Sound finals will score their choice between a gear-and-schwag–filled prize package (that includes $5,000 worth of loot from Ernie Ball) and a one-album recording deal with S.B.’s own LeRoi Records, not to mention a slot on the bill of this year’s New Noise, which kicks off on Thursday, November 3, and stretches on for three days in venues throughout the city.
