Update November 3rd: We love local photos. 

Which is why it's cool that Corduroy LeFevre posted his Rock Fight photos online. Check out the slideshow here.

Update October 30th: Rock Fight has wrapped up it's first season with a deserving winnner.

Once again, The Homegrown Zine gives us some great insight into how the evening went down. While all the bands put on a championship effort, local rock band The IZM took home the top prize. If you don't know anything about The IZM, ListenUp Myrtle Beach has a great write-up on the band that you can read here.  We've got some samples of their music here and there's much more on their ReverbNation profile.

Update October 26th: With the overwhelming number of Halloween events this weekend in Myrtle Beach, some very cool local events may get lost in the noise.

But Rock Fight's final battle and line-up is certain to bring the noise in a great way. Butter's has also announced they have a new website,, that will live stream the Friday night Rock Battle. 

Here's the announced line-up of finalists in no particular order (with links to their Facebook pages):

First Report: Butter's Pub in Socastee hosted the first "Rock Fight" this weekend and it sounds like it may be worth checking out the next couple weeks of semi-final rounds.

Rock Fight is a battle of the bands competition that has already attracted acts from all over the region. ListenUp Myrtle Beach gave a preview of the event on Friday. Read that here.  Then a new local website called The Homegrown Zine followed up this morning with a great post-show review of how the show went and who advanced to the final round. Get the scoop here.

Rock Fight is scheduled for all of October with semi-final battles taking place every Friday night. The goal is to have 6 bands compete with 2 finalists selected each round until the big final round on October 28th where the best of the best will throw down.
