Rounds 1 and 2 took place in Burnsville and Brooklyn Park The Club Three Degrees Friday and Saturday night final competition shows were rightly called the Tournament on Tour Finals including 10 notable, local bands. The doors for the show opened at 6:30 pm both Friday and Saturday night, but the show didn’t get underway until 7:00 pm rocking out until 11pm.

Friday night started off with performers including Shasta Blvd., Boiling Point, These Hearts, Fades Away and Trans4merZ. Saturday night was kicked off with Blank Page Empire then Love Out Loud, Mark This Day, Bright Light Parade and Hyland performed.

Shasta Blvd.

The aforementioned notable bands that performed varied among sounds containing screaming, hard rock, indie rock to pop punk. The main focus of the show is Indie/ Alternative Rock. All of the categories available for participation must fit under four main styles: Rock/ Urban/ Pop and Hard Rock. All final bands have their own definite air of original sound and their hit songs are all available for download or just a listen through both Myspace and/ or Purevolume.

In the past, entrants such as Children 18:3, Mainstay and Philmore have gone on to recording and touring nationally, all based from exposure gained through this large tournament. In the past, prizes for winning competitors in the finals were studio recording time, festival spots, music equipment, promotional/management contracts, professional photo shoots, salon services, clothing, food, gift certificates and many other excellent prizes.

The “New Union” ministry is the original naming for Club Three Degrees and initially how the club got started. Beginning in 1989 with the firm mission statement focusing on presenting the gospel in both relevant and accessible ways, targeting “people who wouldn’t necessarily step foot inside a church and (providing) a safe and entertaining place for Christians of all denominations to come together” is the main purpose for Club 3 Degrees. The official website also states the main purposes for this venue are that Club 3 was built “to be a multi-purpose space that not only accommodates church services, special events and weddings, but is also a great performance space for Christian artists.”


The final outcome for the competition was brought down to three final contenders, Hyland, Love Out Loud and Shasta Blvd. The final outcome came down to Shasta Blvd. in third place, Love Out Loud in second, and Hyland stealing the show with first place.

This year was chalk full of killer performances, and rest assured that next year promises the same. With great music, inspirational testimonies between musical sets and really, being a 3 hour-long worship service, this concert did an amazing job of glorifying His name in the concert/ Twin Cities subculture through relevant rock. - The Indie Toaster

Passionate vocals and memorable guitar hooks set Boiling Point apart from the status quo. More importantly, what keeps people coming back is the band’s emotional depth and willingness to be real with their fans, through their songs and in their live performances. Boiling Point’s music harnesses the fun, exciting parts of life, but is not afraid to explore the deeply challenging parts. Energetic songs like “Miss Everything Zen” and “Try” mix with emotionally raw and haunting songs like “Symphony of It All” and “Rules of the Broken.”

Even the band’s name demonstrates its thoughtful nature and range of emotions. The boiling point is the point at which water evaporates – representing a fundamental change even while the elements remain the same. The band believes that a person can experience this same type of change after encountering God. At the boiling point, we are energized and dispersed. The band hopes to reflect that enormous energy while recognizing the cathartic change and the challenges that remain even after the boiling point has been reached.

While this is the driving force behind Boiling Point, the band differs from many other bands of its genre by using a less literal approach to songwriting. The lyrics are more subtle and nuanced, and do not always address faith literally. Boiling Point believes that we live in a world where the sacred and the secular are not separately defined; the two are inextricably interwoven. The band appeals to both secular and religious audiences, but always strives to communicate an underlying message of hope and grace through its music.

Boiling Point appeals to a wide audience, with fans from ages 3 to 63. They have played at a variety of venues from youth groups, retreats and worship services to charity fundraisers, private parties, music festivals and clubs.
