Battle of the Bands

Audiences left the Baltimore Room at around 9:00 p.m., eager for the final round of competition. 
Journalists Lauren Bartley and Julianna Romaniuk interviewed Josh Leviton, also known as the "Orthobox." Leviton, who is an Orthodox Jewish artist, entertains his audiences by rapping over his personal prerecorded beat boxes.
The diversity of performances, from alternative rock to beat boxing, called for many different instruments and equipment.
Titi Awe, Oladayo Owoeye, and Funmi Owoeye, visitors to the University, enjoyed the music.
A panel of judges observed each set of artists to make the cuts for the final round on Thursday, March 26, 2015. 
Kevin Griffiths, James Riffle, Alex Galiatsatos, and Drew Vinton of "Bare Left" posed for a photo, while patiently awaiting their turn on stage.
The band "Talk Radio," including Kevin Lehr, Devin Ganey, and Mike Houser, opened up the show, performing some of their original music.
Crowds of students, friends, and family members filled the room minutes before the competition began at 7:00 p.m.

The University of Maryland's first round of Battle of the Bands took place on March 24, 2015 in the Stamp Student Union's Baltimore Room. Contestants compete to perform with featured artists, like the Chainsmokers and Jessie J., in the University's annual spring concert, Art Attack.
