By now it's no secret: Alums of RedEye's Rock 'n' Vote contest get results, from the major label signings of I Fight Dragons and Rockie Fresh to The Congregation opening for Wilco and one of last year's competitors, Santiago x The Natural, gaining national attention through ESPN.

We know there are many more Chicago bands who deserve more exposure, so we're not slowing down. Men, women, rockers, rappers, whatever: We want your demo (music, bio, and anything else you've got) for our 10th annual RedEye Rock 'n' Vote competition. We'll choose the top 10 local band submissions; RedEye readers will listen to the finalists and vote for the acts who play our free concert May 14 at House of Blues.

Don't delay! Submissions must be received by April 14. If you're entering electronically, send submissions (music, color hi-res photos, etc.) to mpais@tribune.com and prove that you rock!
