This year's event will take place a week from Saturday (April 17) at Webster Hall and is presented by Dickies.
Here's the history - From its humble beginnings in the back of Max Fish in 2005, to Santos Party House in 2008, musician/artist Marc Razo’s “Shred For Your Life” has been challenging 13 to 54 year olds to shred their best for the past 5 years and will take the show to it’s biggest venue yet with this year’s battle taking place in the Grand Ballroom at Webster Hall on April 17th. In addition, this year “Shred For Your Life” has secured some of the coolest and shred worthy judges including Andrew W.K., Justin Theroux (actor/writer Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2), and Jaleel Bunton (TV On The Radio). Past judges have included actor/comedian David Cross (Arrested Development/Mr. Show), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and Ray Barbee (Skateboard Legend/Musician) among others.
Winners get a crown, oh and a 3 foot guitar pick. Certainly makes the MTV moonman award look like piece of shit doesn't it.
