The University of Utah's annual Battle of the Bands began about 15 minutes late Friday night but that was not the only hiccup in the Associated Students of University of Utah-sponsored event held at Fort Douglas' Post Theatre.

One of the judges was delayed because it took him an hour to get from Sandy to Fort Douglas.

The ASUU's golf cart got stuck in the snow.

And although all 280 tickets for the show had been sold before the event, only 160 people were able to make it through the snowstorm to make it to the battle, said Allie Vangeison, assistant manager of concerts for the ASUU.

But for the 160 students and other members of the community who did make it, there were treated to six talented bands facing off: Mess of Me, Hunted Wicked Nothing,Jon Burgoyne, Chasing Chance, Harlem Shuffle, and Forever is for Now.

The winner? Harlem Shuffle, with Chasing Chance finishing second.

Obviously, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays rock 'n' roll.
