meet the johns:



myspace.com/yesiamthatbad

they are a chicago-area indie-electro-folk band. this probably sounds unappealing to you metalheads and classic rockers that frequent this forum. but this is beyond music. this is making a band's dream come true? what's this dream you ask? i almost forgot.

the johns are in the running, with a lot of other bands, for the chance to play the biggest alternative music festival ... evar. that's right. lollapalooza. is that not a childhood dream? to play lollapalooza. i remember being a little kid watching woodstock '94 with my cousin and thinking "wow ... this is the greatest thing ever." ... mainly the naked chicks covered in mud. but i digress.

what can we do to put them in their rightful place (click on the picture, they're actually a really good band edit: apparently you can't do that anymore)? we can vote. you can vote from each e-mail address you have once a day here:

http://lollapalooza.mp3.com/feature/2007lollapalooza/?band=thejohnschicago

just enter your e-mail address where it says, and enter the code it has written on the page and press vote. simple as that. i guarantee we can do it if we all chip in just a vote or two a day. let's get to it!

I'm sure a lot of bands deserve to go to lollapalooza.

um no. if it is remind me to close the free box thread. i'm not asking you to buy anything or sign up for a website or sign up for some forums. i'm just asking you to just vote for this guy's band. but as usual UG is too cynical and angst-ridden to do anything nice for anyone.

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO


that's what i thought. and you know what actually is advertising? the nationstates threads. i hadn't thought about that. i'll ponder before i close them.

You should promote every band on that list. Fairs fair.


the music business isn't fair though, so your point is nil. i'm sure all these bands have some kind of street team somewhere. hell i don't even know the guy or the band. i just know someone who knows them on another forum. i just want to do something nice for someone.

Don't close the free box thread or this thread. He's only trying to help the band. I'm in.

I also consider this advertising,
its only a free vote but you are bringing attention to another site and another band

this should also be in the promote your band section IMO.......

as for the free box thread, its old and done, close it if you want...
#18
Im gonna make a thread for my friends band who's entering this! Bet you it would be closed!
#19
Why this particular band, may I ask?

By all means close the free box thread, its only valid for people in the States anyway.
Because footstools are cool UG's Classical Guitarists

By making this bands dream come true won't we be preventing other bands from going?


Essentially, yes. But if you like them, then vote for them.

I agree. I don't want to be mean or anything, but it seems that there's alot of ass kissing going on here, too.

the YOUR in promote YOUR band is there for a reason. it's not MY band. i don't KNOW the guy. he lives in chicago. i live in ****ing central IL (i know you're all retards but that means it's about 2 hours apart). i've never even met the guy online. i have no personal motive. it could've been any band. but this is the one that was brought to my attention. so i'm trying to rally support for it. why do y'all always have to be so cynical. i will keep it closed though. and don't worry, i already reported myself for advertising.
