Tribute acts to battle it out next month at Lefthand Brewing Company's Leftapalooza

I think we can all agree that battles of the bands are often tedious. With some notable exceptions, obviously, generally what you get treated to is a parade of mediocre acts that test the thresholds of your tolerance. This one, however, that the Lefthand Brewing Company is hosting next month in Longmont, sounds kind of riveting. How about nine tribute bands battling it out for ultimate supremacy? Uh-huh. Now we're talking.
