Columbia’s Biggest Mouth brings on the talent

By Cristina Aguirre

Columbia’s best musical talent took the stage at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., on April 27 for the annual Biggest Mouth competition, organized by the Student Programming Board. Thirteen bands and performers took the stage, all vying for a cash prize and other rewards.

Three judges declared the winner to be Carbon Tigers, a five-piece indie rock band. Along with the band’s $5,000 prize, they were awarded studio time at Rax Trax Recording Studio, 3126 N. Greenview Ave., and tour consultation from Indie On The Move, a touring and band booking company.
