The winner will join King Super and the Excellents and Lipliplip Hands, the winners of the first two rounds, in the March final. The overall winner gets an opening spot on an upcoming AC Entertainment concert, studio time, and free band merchandise.

The show starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $5.

The next round of Sound Off will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 11, with Dishwater Blonde, Commerce, Sons of the Southside, and Denver T. Stevens.
