Concert preview: Midwest Beatbox Battle

Joel Oliphint
Midwest Beatbox Battle

Beatboxers from across the country and even overseas will be in Columbus for the fifth annual Midwest Beatbox Battle this weekend. Open eliminations take place at the Scarlet & Grey Cafe on Friday, July 29th, and the top 16 beatboxers will advance to Saturday's final rounds where they'll compete in front of a panel of judges for a cash prize. (The winner will also host a beatbox workshop at Wild Goose Creative on Sunday afternoon.) Expect layers of seemingly impossible noises emanating from nothing but one mouth and one mic.(Safe bet)
