Send us (22nd Century) to India!
If you haven't heard yet, you have helped 22nd Century (my band) win the provincial portion of a national battle of the bands called Band on the Run (see http://www.supernova.com/shows/9553) . We're now in the finals of national level competition and first prize is an all expenses paid plus paying gig at the Independence Festival in India in August which means performing in front of an audience of over 200,000. In order to beat the 5 bands from the other provinces participating we needs votes. The online voting starts tomorrow at 1:00 PM eastern and only lasts one week. We stand a one in 6 chance of winning.
In the last 3 years, we played a lot of charity gigs to raise money for causes of others and want to ask for a favor now in return. We would like to ask you to vote for us every day for the next 7 days at this link: http://www.supernova.com/shows/10044. We also know we've asked a lot and want to be really honest and say that we know many of you have given us more than we can ever repay. Having said that, it is a dream of ours to play at one of the world's largest rock festivals and represent Canada!! By the time you read this, there should be a "VOTE" button on the page.
We want to propose that each day (only for the next 7 days) you click here to vote http://www.supernova.com/shows/10044
All you have to do is take 1 minute to open it, click on the link and vote.
In return, all we can do is keep thanking you. Any money we receive above and beyond our expenses in India will be donated towards a charitable cause (perhaps to clean up the gulf, build more school houses in Tanzania, fight the HST, buy Donald Trump a new hair cut?).
Again, we're humbled by this opportunity and realize it wouldn't have happened without you. Votes from any country count!
