If you were hoping to play Next Big Nashville (Oct. 7 - 11) this year and you somehow missed the extended artist submission deadline on July 17, well tough shit, because you blew it.
But if you're interested in attending NBN this year--with all the wham-bam extras like more panels, parties and shows than ever--you can go ahead and purchase a discounted pass now. Right here. It's $75 for a VIP pass, which gets you into all the aforementioned hullabaloo, and $35 for a wristband, for the down-and-dirty shows-only access. These prices are available until they're not anymore, so choose wisely. Hey, you know what Rush said: "If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."
