Registration is Closed, But...
Time is up to register for the 2012-2013 installment of BOOM. We'll be starting over, most likely this fall, and the slate will be wiped clean. If you'd like us to send you a reminder when the registration opens back up, sign up over here! Regardless if you're totally new to BOOM and missed out, signed up and didn't get a chance to participate, or even made it far in the contest, everyone is welcome back with each new edition.
We had many more registrations than contest slots to fill. We realize a lot of very worthy, deserving, and great sounding bands didn't get a chance to go. We truly appreciate everybody who took the time to sign up. But please, get your name on our reminder list so we can invite you back the moment it's time to begin the next installment of BOOM.
