METALLICA Are Choosing Local Bands To Open Their Mexico City Shows, How Cool Is That?
I will forever defend Metallica. For all the crap they get, they, more than any other band in the genre, always give back to the scene. They constantly take out up and coming bands and the feedback from bands is always that its the best they'd ever been treated. And, they are going to continue that trend when the thrash Gods play Mexico City.
The band have launched a contest where local acts can submit their band to possibly open the big Metallica shows. Here's how it works, according to Metallica's website:
Local bands may submit a video (YouTube or SoundCloud links) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of each band member, an e-mail address, phone number and city of residence. Please submit your videos before February 20th at 7:00 PM CST. All performers do need to be Mexican residents, currently active as a band, play on a regular basis and of course be available to perform on one of the show days, March 1st, 3rd, or 5th.
A panel of local music industry professionals will choose fifty finalists who will be posted here for fans around the world to have the final say on by voting starting Tuesday, February 21st through Friday, February 24th, Three winners will be revealed here on Monday, February 27th. So keep watching here and come back to vote next week!
You guys have until Monday to get your shit together and submit! Good luck.
