Road to Bonnaroo 2013
MCU's very own The Young International will be competing alongside many other great acts for a spot at Bonnaroo this summer. Come join us as we cheer on our friends & support great indie music.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25
Mercy Lounge
9 p.m.; Free and Open to 21+

The first round includes:
The Young International, Alana Royale, Five Knives, Sol Cat, Dylan McDonald, Schools, Grass Root Kids, and Magnolia Sons.
BMI's Road to Bonnaroo 2013 (RTB 2013) will bring Nashville's indie bands and music fans together for the fifth consecutive year to select three homegrown artists ready to represent the city's bustling music scene on a national stage. Slated for three Mondays during BMI's 8 off 8th shows at the Mercy Lounge over the next three months - February 25, March 25 and April 15 - RTB 2013 will offer one slot each night to perform at the 2013 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, June 13-16 in Manchester, Tenn.

RTB 2013 will follow the rules established in previous years: As the live-action litmus test, eight bands will perform three-song sets during each installment of the series. To select the evening's top contender, an industry panel comprised of local music journalists, bloggers, and 8 off 8th hosts will contribute one half of the verdict, while fan votes through onsite ballots determine the other half.

As the nation's spotlight remains laser-focused on Nashville, more eyes bring greater expectations and up the five-year-old RTB's already considerable ante. The lineup for the first round of RTB 2013 meets the challenge and sets the bar sky high.
