Get ready to rock out with your debit cards out for a night of drinks and live music when Breakers Battle of the Bands kicks off at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 12, inside Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre.

Each week, four bands will take the stage to compete for a spot in the finals, where a grand prize of $10,000 will be awarded. Bet you wish you were in a band right now, huh?

Weekender will have your first look at who will be performing each week. First up, Butch Frable and F3, Nova City, Shake Shake Shake and The Surrogate Sons. We asked them how the grand prize of 10 grand could help them.

Let the battle begin, bitches.
