Break open a non-alcoholic beer and prepare a virgin for sacrifice, for local band Sanuk has emerged victorious in Record Store Day's Battle of the High School Bands.
And what, folks, did they win?
Well, not only placement on a vinyl comp collecting songs from the finalists in the contest, but also equipment generously provided by the Fender company and a recording session with producer Jack Ponti and mixing engineer Kevin Shirley. Not to mention a mention on the RSD homepage.
A serious accomplishment for the band comprised of students from Cathedral and Lawrence North high schools. Our own lovely Nora Spitznogle has been on the track since almost the beginning, when she wrote about the band's record release show at Cathedral.
Take a listen to Sanuk's winning track, "Love Stay":
