Update: Voting for Anythink LIVE! is now closed. Thanks to everyone who voted!
From solo piano virtuosos to punk rock bands, we received a multitude of entries for the 2016 edition of Anythink LIVE!, a district-wide music contest just for teens. We’ve sorted through all of the submissions, and our panel of judges has narrowed the entries down to the following finalists:
Now it’s up to all Anythinkers to decide on the winner. Give these finalists a listen and vote for your favorite in our poll below. The winner will perform live as the opening act at Anythink’s Backyard Concert Series with Casey James Prestwood and the Burning Angels on Friday, Aug. 12.
Voting for Anythink LIVE! is open from June 22-30. We’ll announce the winner on Friday, July 8 at the upcoming Backyard Concert Series with SuperMagick. Join us on the one-acre park for the announcement, not to mention BBQ, drinks and great music. The Backyard Concert Series is free and open to the public, with food and beverage sales benefitting the Anythink Foundation and the expansion of The Studio.
Last year, five-piece rock band Altitude won the popular vote for Anythink LIVE! The teen group, based in Westminster, Colo., has since released a full-length album and continues to perform in the area.
A big thank you to all of the teens who entered Anythink LIVE! – there’s no shortage of talent in our community. We encourage you to record music at Anythink and explore your passion with other informal learning opportunities through The Studio. In addition to a digital learning lab at Anythink Wright Farms, which includes a complete recording studio, teens from across the district can access traveling audio recording kits. These kits provide tools like microphones, audio input and Garage Band. Speak with a staff member at your local Anythink to learn more about The Studio and how to access these tools.
