Thumbnail image for therumblelogo2012.jpgBoston's music scene might be a little too big and a little too diverse for a battle of the bands, such as one which will take place this April at TT the Bears (see the 2012 Rock 'N' Roll Rumble schedule here: http://wzlx.radio.com/rockandrollrumble/).

However, WZLX DJ Anngelle Wood's annual event plays a certain role in holding the city's music together; sort of like how retired numbers keep baseball fans united through the ages despite changes in players and ownership. My favorite thing about Boston's Rumble is that it creates bills of bands that would probably all be headliners on their own nights. Makes for a great excuse to see a bunch of solid bands that you've been hearing about in a single night. Isn't that what any good music event does? While it's hard to imagine NYC having a battle of the bands, my guess is that on any given night, someone from Boston *might* be able to win. So good luck bands, and have fun!
