You already know about The Slants from previous blog posts and giveaways - now they've gotten passed the first two rounds of the Bodog Music Battle of the Bands, but need all the help you can give them in getting to the next round. Peep the info from their bulletin:
Support Asian American rockers lighting it from the ground up.
As you know, we are competing in the Bodog Music Battle of the Bands for a chance to win a spot on tv and a million dollar recording contract! We've passed rounds 1 & 2 (getting first place at each one!) and will now be in the regional finals. The next round will be set in Seattle, WA on Feb 1st (all ages). Now, we need all the support we can get - this means out-promoting and out-performing every band that we're up against. So, we've done a few things:
We set up a special Myspace account just for this competition: http://www.myspace.com/slantsrockbodog (add to your friends now!)On this site, you'll find an online shopping cart where you can get exclusive deals by buying tickets for the show, banners that you can put on your websites to promote, and .pdf versions of posters that you can download and print. You can also buy Simon Young's signature 'Rising Sun' bass.
We're pullin' all stops for this one to show Bodog Music how much we can rock their pants off. It's the Chinatown way.
Also, if you're from Portland, you ride in style in The Slants' van to the show - just email us for details.
