Battle of the Bands is back for year 3!

Join us on August 17th as local favorites Barbacoa, Sputoola, Night Protocol, Zeus Springsteen, and Astrocat battle it out for the ultimate Pine Street prize package AND a year long residency as Citizen Cider’s house band.



Started in 2017 Battle of the Bands has been our way of bringing local musicians together to battle it out for a chance to become Citizen Cider’s house band. The winning band will get the opportunity to preform at Citizen Cider’s biggest events of the year, Art Hop, Ciderfest, Maplefest and more!

About the bands



Barbacoa is a surfer rock band originally from Austin Texas, with a sound that’s guaranteed to make you wish you were sitting on a beach somewhere with a taco in one hand and a can of For Shore in the other!



Sputoola hails from the Queen City and features a delicious blend of Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Jazz and Folk.



Night Protocol of Burlington, VT, feature a cutting-edge style of electronic music, fueled by synthesizers and a devotion to the sounds of the 1980’s.



Zeus Springsteen is a power trio from Burlington Vermont that prides themselves on expanding even the wildest of music pallets.



Astrocat is Citizen Cider’s first international crew, comprised of members from Ukraine, Canada and the US. Brace yourself for an eclectic, musical space station that embodies and evokes punk, grunge and indie.

There is no admission, however donations are accepted to support our favorite nonprofit The Lake Champlain Committee

Hope to see you there!
