RedEye Rock 'n' Vote 2014: Send demos now, local bands!

In 2013, the 10th annual RedEye Rock 'n' Vote was simply huge: A packed House of Blues crowd partied with whysowhite, Michele McGuire, DVS Jackson Esq. and the Addies, with McGuire ultimately taking home the title. And we're not stopping there.

Rock 'n' Vote (with alums including JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, Rockie Fresh and I Fight Dragons) is back, which means it's time for any Chicago band seeking exposure to send in your demo (music, bio, anything else you have). We're looking for men, women, rappers, rockers, anything really--just make it good. We'll pick the top 10 submissions, and RedEye readers will listen to the finalists and vote for which acts they want to see play our RedEye Rock 'n' Vote concert Thursday, May 22 at Lincoln Hall.

Don't delay! Submissions must be received by April 11. If you're entering electronically, send submissions (music, color hi-res photos, etc.) to mpais@tribune.com and prove that you rock!

    Not every ride's the Willard's Whizzer. That iconic coaster debuted in 1976 when Marriott's Great America, now Six Flags Great America, in Gurnee, Ill., first opened. And it's still popular today. But for every Whizzer there's a Tidal Wave, Shockwave or Z-Force, rides existing only in memory.
