It’s BACK! Our 2nd annual March Music Madness, a competitive 64 band/solo artist tournament that runs concurrently with the NCAA Basketball tourney, is set to start this THUR. The bands that move on round to round are determined by you, the music fan. We will have an embedded screen up on the site THUR that will easily allow you to vote for who you think should move on. The reasons for your vote is entirely up to you…who is the best, who is your favorite, who is more “now”.

We narrowed the field to sixty four teams by selecting the most relevant indie rock/hip hop bands to compete. Absent from this years list is RADIOHEAD, who won it last year. We also dropped Wilco, LCD Soundsystem, and The Flaming Lips who all did well in MMM ’08. For those wondering how we selected the bands and why they are seeded in a certain way…fear not, tomorrow (MON), we will post a podcast where we discuss our logic and turn to our thoughts on the first round.
