For years, AdJam, ThinkLA's Annual Battle of the Agency Bands, has unleashed the raw, savage – if unheralded – musical talent upon an unsuspecting planet. The top agency bands compete, and the winner receives the coveted AdJam Axe, plus bragging rights in the industry for the whole year.
This year's AdJam is at The Novo DTLA and we are ready for the battle. We're profiling each of the bands to help you decide whom you should root for come decision day. Check out what we asked Darth Vato (Deutch), and make sure you're registered for AdJam on Sept. 22. #ThinkAdJam
