The following was posted by Jessica (a former classmate of mine) over at Ten Squares, Three Squiggles. Injustice is injustice even if it is local. Please Vote!
Can you imagine being the opening band for Coldplay? Well, my brother-in-law Laurence has that chance. His band Shag has been selected as a finalist in a contest to be the opening band at Coldplay's upcoming concert in D.C.! But he got cheated in the process. When the finalists were announced and voting started, Shag's video was missing so people couldn't vote for them. By the time Coldplay got it fixed, some of the competitors already had hundreds of votes. Please vote and help bring them justice! The public vote will select the top 3 bands and the members of Coldplay will select the winner from there. You can only vote one time per email address so please pass this info along! Please go to DC101.com and click on Vote Now. Look for Shag's video (singing Overated). The band names aren't listed under the videos for some reason but they are the 12th band shown, or 4th from the bottom. You can just make out the Shag bullseye banner on the left of the stage behind Laurence singing. Voting ends Thursday, July 17 so please vote now. THANK YOU and CHEERS!
