People always say Portland tech types collaborate. Apparently they've never been to TAO Battle of the Tech Bands.

Sure sure. We’re all about collaborating here in the Portland tech scene. But every once in a while, the gloves come off. And nowhere is that more apparent that the Technology Association of Oregon’s Battle of the Tech Bands. Where folks show off their side project prowess.

TAO’s Battle of the Tech Bands (BxB) is a musical tussle between the local industry’s most melodious members! This is your chance to mingle with your peers and get down to the creative talent that keeps the PDX tech community rocking here in the Silicon Forest!

This event showcases two of the best parts of Portland’s Culture: music & tech. TAO member companies take the stage to compete for Portland’s best tech band. A crowd of over 300 from the TAO community & beyond will assemble to cheer on their favorite bands and company. This event is a great way to increase community connectedness and promote Portland’s unique corporate culture.

But you have to act fast. The event takes place Thursday, October 8, 2015, at 7:00PM. Tickets will run you $20. And there are still a few available.
