At last Saturday’s Stranger Big Shot competition at Neumo’s, Speaker Speaker were crowned kings! Not only did they get a bitchin’ trophy and a bottle of celebratory champagne, they also took home $2,000 in cash, equipment, a slot at the 2006 Capitol Hill Block party, an on-air performance on 107.7 The End, a day of free studio time from Orbit Audio, and more!

Many thanks to all the bands that played, including the night’s headliners, Visqueen, and other Big Shot nalists the Emergency, Romance, and Tennis Pro. You were all fantastic. Also, many thanks to everyone who voted and to the sponsors who made the show happen: Jim Beam Black, Capitol Hill Block Party, Easy Street Records, Fastrax, Gibson, Miller High Life, Orbit Audio, 107.7 The End, and Epiphone.
