The Big 4 Battle of the Bands Is The One Thing That Might Make You Wish You Were Canadian

Great white north chartered accountant and friend of GC Krupo reports from the Big 4 Battle of the Bands in Toronto last night:

Every band had an intro video. Deloitte recounted its "League of Rock," and the others introduced their bands in their own particular way. Here's Ernst and Young's take on an intro video for their band, the Going Concerns. I love the tagline – Accountable to No One.

Er, it might be too soon after the L-word to use the tagline "accountable to no one" but how rock 'n' roll of the Going Concerns to simply not care. I'm willing to bet they also trash hotel rooms when out of town for a client.

When I saw Krupo posting about this on Facebook last night, I thought maybe a few Big 4 buddies got together to get drunk and sing bad karaoke but no, this is actually a serious event in Canada (go figure). Last year's event – the first – saw 1600 attendees and raised $20,000 for United Way Toronto’s Community Fund so it's not only a raucous good time and opportunity to mock KPMG keyboardists but charitable too! WHY OH WHY aren't we already doing this in the States?! Can one of you please get on that ASAP?

Krupo has promised to write up a guest post on the event for you all Monday but for now, please enjoy the Going Concerns performing Michael Jackson's "Beat It":
