Three Nashville bands are going to play Bonnaroo this year. But whose tight jeans will reign supreme, "earning" them the chance to rock multitudinous faces (or spray them with white foam) in Manchester come June? Well, that's where you and I and BMI come in. One band will be chosen at each of three different 8 off 8ths starting March 23. Here's the deal: We all go to Mercy Lounge on Monday night like we always do. Everyone gets a ballot. The bands play, and votes are collected at the end of the night after all the bands have gone on (so you have to stay for everyone in order for your vote to count). Fan voting accounts for half the deciding power. The other half comes from a panel of local *cough* music writers *cough*, bloggers and 8 off 8th hosts. The winner of each night's voting gets to play Bonnaroo. Somebody text Nate Silver. Anyway, the first one's in a little over two weeks. May the best band win! Schedule after the jump.
