You’ve seen “Law and Order” enough times to grasp that lawyers know how to duke it out in the courtroom. But how do the suits handle being on stage? Well friends, it’s time to make your own ruling.

On Thursday, June 21, lawyers and employees from area law firms will compete in the ninth annual Battle of the Law Firm Bands at the Black Cat (14th and S NW) to benefit Gifts for the Homeless, Inc. (GFTH), a non-profit, all-volunteer organization supported by the city’s legal community to help the homeless.

Sixteen bands will compete on two different stages for the title of “Banding Together Champion.” All proceeds from the evening will be used to purchase thermal underwear, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, gloves, socks, blankets and other essential new clothing items for homeless men, women, and children.

All are invited to attend the event; a $10 cover charge gets you in the door. For more information, please visit the Gifts for the Homeless website.
