Queer audiophiles in Ottawa will be watching the outcome of this year's Live 88.5 FM Big Money Shot competition.

Two queer, or at least queer-friendly, bands have made it into the third round of the annual search for explosive local talent, which kicks off tonight at Ritual Nightclub.

Five-piece girl band Apocalypstic take to the stage tonight, Wednesday, Sept 12 at 10:30pm, while Xtra cover darlings The PepTides perform Saturday, Sept 15 at 9:45pm.

Both bands played Capital Pride last month. The winner will be awarded a substantial monetary prize, although the exact amount varies from year to year. Previous winner Amanda Rheaume was awarded $40,000. Six bands from the current group of 15 will move on to round four.
