KFO (Bryan Newman) won this yearís Laptop Battle Friday night with a flamboyant, dynamic performance involving a Guitar Hero MIDI controller. (I only caught KFO during an early round; the abundance of steakhead bros in the crowd and another show forced me to an early exit from Nectar, which was packed by 10 pm; nice work, everybody.)

Newman took home several prizes [see the list below]. In addition, he will play the closing set at the Battle of the MegaMixes Oct. 18 at Nectar Lounge. Congrats to KFO and all the other contestants.

NI - Synth
Ableton - Instrument
Mackie - Multi - Track
Audio Damage - EFX Plug
Sonic Charge - Drum Machine
FabFilter - Stereo Tape Delay Plug
D16 - Distortion Plug
Puremagnetik - Sample Pak
Electric Baby - Laptop Sleeve
