Final voting round ends Friday for Sound and Jury

sound and juryOnline voting ends Friday night for Sound and the Jury, the annual contest that sends one band to an opening slot at Austin City Limits Fest. You can vote here.

After voting ends, the top five vote-getters will play a battle-of-the-bands show at Antone's on September 30th, where a panel of judges will decide who gets to play the fest. While 20 bands made this final voting round, only about eight have a realistic shot at the top five. I've listed who they are in order of most votes to the least below.

Frankly, I'd only heard of three of those bands before the competition started. I've been going to Your Kisses Cause Crashes shows for almost a year now. They're great, though a recent lineup change has left kinks to be ironed out. I shot some live footage of the band here. The Bright Light Social Hour is awesome live. They're on my list of bands to film for 'NITES, but in the mean time listen to a free song here. I haven't seen Whitman live, but I keep hearing good things about them from a variety of sources. The vote count is nail-bitingly close. Exciting!
