Looks like the WIA battle of the Animation Bands has been postponed. Here's the lowdown...

...............

The Battle of the Animation Bands has been postponed. New date to be set soon.

Women in Animation International's co-presidents, Rita Street and Jan Nagel, regret
to announce the Battle of the Animation Bands has been postponed. The event scheduled for Saturday, September 25 will not be held due to a lack of ticket sales. All ticket holders will be reimbursed.

Rita and Jan want to thank Bonsai Tribe, Groove Bazaar and Go-Go Global!, the three amazing contestants, DJ Krisz Klink and 6 Point Harness for the venue. WIA International is looking for another date in the very near future.
