Congratulations to the Bloids, the Ann Arbor duo that recently competed in Blender magazine's recent national “Battle of the Bands.” The band actually won the damn thing, with their entered song, "Breakdown Calling,'' receiving more than 5,000 votes. The winning band was awarded a headlining slot at this year’s South By Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.
