Battle of the Bands: UCD MedSoc vs Trinity BioSoc

"We’re expecting talent, we’re expecting passion and we’re expecting drama in our very first UCD and Trinity mashup.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. On the 29th of March, UCD MedSoc and Trinity BioSoc go head to head and battle it out to see who can make the biggest show of themselves all in the name of a fantastic cause very close to our hearts.

In aid of Pieta House, we’re asking you to pull out the microphones and dust off the wigs to see if you can take a better stab at an homage to ABBA than Donna and the Dynamos, or get your gals together to see if a spicier rendition of Wannabe is possible? This is your chance to show your mum all those countless hours of piano lessons were worth it when you twinkle the ivories to a unique rendition of That’s What Makes You Beautiful on the Workman’s Stage.

If you think you have a Freddie Mercury waiting to be released or want to show your uptown girl how you feel, teams will be asked to choose a tribute band and pick a groovy selection from the chosen band to perform on the night. If you think you have what it takes, get in contact with your respective MedSoc/BioSoc and let us know you’re interested.

All funds raised will be in aid of Pieta House."
