Hello Coachella friends. I am asking all of you to take a few second out of your day and cast a vote for my band, Rags To Radio, in a contest we are currently in. If we win the contest, we get flown out to Montreal to play 2 sets at the POP Montreal Music festival featuring David Byrne, St. Vincent, Grizzly Bear, Gotye, Liars, Grimes, Big Boi, and more! This would seriously be a dream come true for me and it would mean a huge amount if you cast a vote for my band. This is the last round of voting and it only take a couple of seconds. Thank you!

And if any of you are wondering about the Corey Hart cover... all bands selected for the top 8 had to cover "I Wear My Sunglasses At Night" and make an accompanying video for the song. I realize both the song and the video are completely ridiculous, but we had 3 days to record the song, film, and edit the video. It was a stressful 3 days, but we got it done.

Anyways, we are currently in the lead right now, but in the the last round of voting we were us 20% at the halfway point and by the end it was almost 50/ 50. We want to avoid getting that close again, so every vote counts!

All you need to do is click this link here and vote for RAGS TO RADIO... www.montrealbattleofthebands.com

Thanks friends! I really appreciate this. Voting ends TONIGHT at 8:59pm (PST)/ 11:59pm (EST)... so cast your vote before you forget!

Yes. You do have to be logged into facebook. Unfortunately, if you don't have a facebook you can't vote.


Looks like you got this round in the bag. Good luck!

Thanks Mike! I don't want to speak too soon though. All the support is appreciated!

Also, I forgot to mention, this is the semi-finals, not the finals. If we win this round, we go to the finals where the judges decide between the last two bands standing. No voting is required in that round.

Holy shit guys. I saw a TON of you posted/ voted on facebook. The support for us was unreal. We are going to the finals and I am beside myself. I cannot thank you all enough. Wish us luck in the finals!!!


Did you get a different drummer yet?

We have had a new drummer for almost 2 years now. You will be able to hear him on our first full length album coming out this November/ December. We kicked our other drummer out not even 6 months after our first EP.

For those who don't know already, yes. My band won. We have been selected to play at POP Montreal where we are being flown out, given accomodations, and will be playing 2 sets. Its... pretty unreal.

I have been a festival goer for a long time, but I must say, it feels pretty cool to be invited to play a music festival like this. I certainly hope there is more where this came from in the future.

Thank you to everyone here who voted, or was not able to vote but was cheering us on. Your support meant a lot and now my band if being flown across the country to play a rad music festival. Too cool.

Thanks man! I feel rude asking this, but are we friends on facebook? If not, add me!

So awesome!!!!!!!!!

Haha, I doubt it. Its more of a SXSW styled fest, as oposed to a Coachella styled festival. Lots of little venues with bands plays everywhere, all over the place, all day and night. Maybe the big stages where artists like David Byrne, Gotye and Grizzly Bear will be webcast, but I doubt we play on any of those stages/ venues haha.
