New Belgium’s Tour de Fat is coming to Durham on June 20 and we are putting a local North Carolina band on stage based on your votes.

Dark Water Rising and The Nick Driver Band earned well-deserved spots in the finals, which will be held at our Final Battle of the Bands at Motorco Music Hall on June 18 at 8 p.m.

It’s going to be an awesome, free show for you to cheer for the band that is going to play on Tour de Fat on June 20 in Diamond View Park with 6,500 of NC’s coolest, beer-drinking, bike-riding people!
