Portland Metal Winter Olympics Final Showdown

[UP-AND-COMING METAL] If you ever find yourself asking why this town is so great, it’s because of things like the Portland Metal Winter Olympics, a three-month-long stretch of cheap Thursday night metal shows in which the bands duke it out in a battle-of-the-bands-type scenario—though really, it’s more of a social gathering and networking opportunity than an actual competition. This here is the final showdown, meaning three bands that have made it to the coveted final round will come head-to-head while judges critique songcraft, showmanship and “zazz.” What constitutes “zap?” Best to come down and find out for yourself. And may the zazziest band win!
