There’s a mere 48 hours left to cast your vote for the remaining 10 bands in Airwalk’s Unsigned Hero competition. The online competition allows an up-and-coming band a chance to play the SPIN and MusicGorilla.com showcases at one of the world’s largest music festivals in Austin, Texas in early 2010.
Airwalk has launched a newly designed voting section on the Airwalk Unsigned Hero site, which includes video of the finalists and incorporates social media (MySpace, Facebook) to allow visitors to familiarize themselves with each of the participating bands. The Airwalk folks couldn’t make it any easier, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to give an unsigned hero the chance of a lifetime! The winning band of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will receive an all-expense paid trip to Austin as well as $5,000 spending cash and a package of Airwalk gear. Voters can win big too – by simply casting their vote, consumers and fans are automatically entered into a monthly drawing to win an Airwalk-engraved iPod™ nano!
This year’s ten finalists include: Audible Mainframe (Long Beach, CA); Awaking State (Claremont, Ontario); Boom Box Repair Kit (New York, NY); Dose of Adolescence (Long Beach, CA); Empires (Chicago, IL); Halos (Orange County, CA); Lucabrazzi (San Francisco, CA); Million Dollar Mouth (Los Angeles, CA); Oak is Keeping (Austin, TX) and The Flying Tourbillion Orchestra (Los Angeles, CA).
Voting is open until Sept. 30, 2009. Winners of Airwalk’s 2008/09 Unsigned Hero contest were The Monthlies, a band out of Los Angeles, CA, who recently dropped their first album, Monthlies Assemble! To stay up-to-date with last year’s winners, check out the The Monthlies’ official Web site.
