Congratulations to The Cardboard Crowns, winners of the 2013 edition of the LiVE 88.5 Big Money Shot competition!

While one could argue for this band or that band, the judges had a tough decision on their hands, and The Cardboard Crowns are fully deserving of their title.

The band laid down a high energy set from start to finish, led by the antics of their firecracker drummer. I’m not sure how the rest of the band didn’t have to carry him off the stage at the end of their set. The band’s energy was infectious, as were their tunes. I liked what I heard, and I definitely want to hear more than the short 20 minute set that I was treated to.

If you dig a frantic ska/punk mix, you will definitely want to give The Cardboard Crowns a listen! Better yet, check out their next show. I know I’ve got them on my radar now. Thank you LiVE 88.5 for the introduction.
