Live 8 stand aside, there’s a new kid in town.

The University of Calgary Rotaract club and Engineers Without Borders are hosting a battle of bands fundraiser Wed., Feb. 8 at The Whisky Nightclub. The show will feature local rockers Life like Cobra, Clockwork 7, Supernal, Remote Kid and the Villains.

Proceeds are slated for a number of international projects including the building of Biosan water filters, environmental stoves and community latrines in four Nicaraguan communities. As well, funds will go to help run a playschool in San Juan Del Sur, one of the towns.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $10, but the price includes two free drinks.
