Description

Jay, Kelvin and Cia are The Lunar Ticks, a dedicated band who are convinced they are on their way up. They hope to win an upcoming battle of the bands where the first prize is a full day in a recording studio. Jay is struggling to write new material but finds he lacks the experience to come up with a truly original song. Going up against Indigo Daze, a band from another school, Jay finds himself falling for Rowan, the leader of the other band. When Rowan's guitar is trashed right before the contest The Lunar Ticks are the prime suspects.
Also available in Spanish.

Battle of the Bands (Orca Soundings)

Life in Grade 11 is mostly boring for Jay – a regular guy who lives in the suburbs of Vancouver – except for the fact that his band, The Lunar Ticks, is on their way to the top!
