Astoria High School students and community members cheered on four musical acts–Ben Walden, The Weirs, Shattered Shell and the Horse Necks–as they competed in the Battle of the Bands at Fort George on Sunday night. Taylor Parker, a senior at Astoria High School and Fort George employee, organized the event for her Senior Project. The winner, rock band Shattered Shell, took home $150 and a bouquet of flowers for their explosive performance. The Weirs, a folksy duo, placed second and won $50.
