Odds Fish is set to play in the Homegrown Throwdown Finals – thanks to the efforts of our amazing fans!
That’s right, friends! Odds Fish made it into the 2017 Q106 Homegrown Throwdown FINALS, and it’s all thanks to you, the fans, for making it happen!
After Round 4 of the Homegrown Throwdown, Odds Fish was a part of a poll to determine which bands would continue on into the Finals as a wildcard choice. (As we placed 2nd on our night, and only 1st was guaranteed a finals slot, we had to rock the vote in the poll!) The fans delivered and Odds Fish won out!
But the results didn’t come without their fair share of drama and suspense. You see, when the poll closed, we were 2nd place, which equaled a spot in the finals… or so we thought. It was a bit more complicated than that…
Not long before the poll closed, the bands also received an email about needing to adjust scores for fake accounts, fake votes, etc. for all of the bands, even those who were not attempting any foul play (as with anything on the internet, there are bound to be issues.) So, we waited patiently to announce anything, just to be on the safe side. But then, when the official announcement was made, we discovered that Odds Fish actually came out on top! Not 2nd anymore! We received the most fan votes (obviously the most real votes too) and placed 1st in the poll, guaranteeing us a place in the FINALS! Awesome! We can’t say how absolutely honored we are!
We could not have done it without you all! So THANK YOU!!!
But of course… the battle still isn’t quite over yet… because now, we have to pack that place for the FINALS!!! Just as in the other rounds, the bands’ scores will be made up of 3 things:
33.3% of the score comes from ticket sales
33.3% of the score comes from the judges comments/critiques
33.3% of the score comes from audience response and votes
So, having people out there to support us is a really big deal!
