Starting on October 12th - the 5th year of the Point's Classic Cover Contest commences.. It's starting to smell a lot like glory... and Sharpies oddly enough.. We have collected 28 of the most talented musicians in Humboldt County and we are pitting them up against each other in a bloody double elimination tournament on the airwaves.. Tune in at 9am, 12ish, and 3pm to hear each battle in all it's glory.. Voting is open for one hour.. You can vote 2 ways - by calling us at 707-786-5978 (please only call once per battle), and on Facebook (where you can listen to the tracks again for the heat, and of course, vote with a "like"). You decide who you want to see perform for the live finale on November 20th at Humbrews. The Point's Classic Cover Contest is brought to you by Piersons Building Center - Home of the Big Hammer and Bear River Casino and Hotel. Prizes donated by Ferndale Music and Blue Lake Casino and Hotel.
