That would be suburb!

You can vote every day from each email address.  And, seeing that this thing is based in Chicago, I'm sure that ballot box stuffing is not only allowed, but encouraged!

today is the last day!
get your votes in.
has anyone listened to some of the others that are in the top slots?
awful stuff
i know they have some sort of automated vote thingy or a hacker friend who got in there and changed the total # of votes.

The Handcuffs should get in based on their impressive resume alone!

(not to mention the fact that they are two of the sweetest people on the planet)

looks like the voting is over
the handcuffs ended up a respectable 27th

on to round 2

Celebrity judges including Perry Farrell will choose their favorite bands from the Top 100 to move onto Round 3. During the first week of July, the celebrity judges will choose 20 national/international bands and 12 Chicago local bands to move on. These semi-finalists will be announced July 7

stay tuned!

****NEWSFLASH****

The Hancuffs were chosen as a finalist for the contest and they get to move on to the next round!!

Out of 2500 bands, they narrowed it down to 100. The Handcuffs were chosen as one of 12 Chicago area bands to compete in separate showcases within the next few weeks. I think there were 56 Chicago area bands out of the 100, so to be in the top 12 of all of those is pretty cool. 

...

official announcement to be made today, july 7

(somebody actually had an ear for music and an eye for talent)

Oh, I see.....in round 3..........

National/international: The competition truly heats-up online 20 semi-finalists will have the opportunity to upload two more songs into the website to better showcase their sound. But get this: the votes are reset and the 20 semi-finalists must generate as many NEW votes as possible within a two-week period. Only the Top 4 vote-getters from Round 3 become finalists and win the opportunity to showcase their live show in Round 4.  Round 3 voting online ends July 21.

Chicago/local: The competition also heats up in Chicago. Each of the 12 local semi-finalists will be invited to play in one of four (4) on-premise Last Band Standing events in music venues around Chicago. Three bands will battle in each of the four events with the performances being captured on video. Fans will view the videos online and the one (1) band that receives the most votes based on their video performance will become the fifth and last finalist for Round 4.

I can't wait for this one!  Any ideas when it will happen?

Then in round 4......

The four national/international finalists will join the one Chicago/local finalist and all five bands will be invited to Chicago to face-off in a finale event August 2. Each band will be given a 20-minute set on stage to determine it all. That night, audience voting will determine the grand prize winner and celebrity judges like Perry Farrell will again play a role as they select the runner-up.

Way to go kids!

From "Handcuffs Central"...

Dear friends and fans:

A heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of you for helping thrust The Handcuffs
further along on our quest to perform at this summer's Lollapalooza.
Because of your votes, we were ranked in the top 100 (we finished at #27 to be exact)
of 2,500 band entries and were able to move easily into Round 2 on June 30.
We are deliriously grateful for your voting support, so thanks again.

We were then judged by a panel of music industry pros, who chose 21 national/international bands
and 12 Chicago bands to move on to Round 3. Well, we made the cut and are one of those 12 Chicago bands.
Incidentally, The Handcuffs are the only local finalist to have any female members. Go Chloe and Emily!

The next step is to play a battle of the bands type showcase organized by rockin' Q101 radio
where our performance will be filmed and then posted on the contest website where, once again,
we will be competing for votes. Our competition will only be with the Chicago bands and one local band
is guaranteed to move on to the final round (where the industry panel of judges takes over again).

We know it's short notice, but our pre-Lollapalooza showcase takes place THIS Wednesday, July 12 in Chicago.
If you can make it out, we'd love your support and/or the support of your Chicago area friends.
Come out and cheer us on and make your presence known on the video! Here are the details:

Wednesday, July 12
JOE'S ON WEED STREET
Chicago, IL
(940 W. Weed St.)
Showtime: 8 - 11 p.m.
The Handcuffs showtime: TBA (but sometime between 8 & 11)
Three bands doing 30 minute sets
21 and over. Cost: probably free!
Joe's is located 1 block south of North Ave. & 1/2 block east of Sheffield
phone: (312) 337-3486

We'll post updates just as soon as we get 'em. Thanks again and tell thousands!

The latest from Handcuffs Central regarding Handcuffsapalooza...
"Boris"

Hello campers!

As you know, The Handcuffs are on our way to try to win a slot on the main stage at Lollapalooza 2006.
This is VERY last minute*, we know, but we are enlisting your support (in fact, begging for it).
It's really easy!

PLEASE TEXT MESSAGE YOUR VOTE FOR THE HANDCUFFS
THIS WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JULY 12
FROM 10:35 P.M. - 11:30 P.M. CENTRAL TIME
TEXT: HANDCUFFS to the number 99161
(Please text vote as often as you can in that period of time --
and don't forget to take into account your time zone)

Hey kids in the U.S., that means if you're:
out east it's 11:35 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. (please stay up just this once)
in the midwest it's 10:35 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
in mountain time it's 9:35 p.m. - 10:30 p.m
on the west coast it's 8:35 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
All other time zones in the world, you're on your own...

VOTING ONLY LASTS FOR 55 MINUTES
(during the time specified above, so please vote early and often).
And please pass the above information on to anyone and everyone!

*Sorry for the late notice, but they changed the rules on us last minute.
But, hey, it's their contest and they can do whatever they want.

We're playing our pre-Lollapalooza battle of the bands FREE showcase
Wednesday night, July 12 at Joe's on Weed St. in Chicago
and voting begins IMMEDIATELY after our set.
We'd LOVE to see you. And we WILL ROCK YOU in spite of the contest!
And, it's an early show for a school night.
See the show details below and don't forget to bring your cell phone:

Three bands compete in a battle of the bands showcase
The Handcuffs play a 30 minute showcase from 10 - 10:30 p.m.
(we're the third and final band of the night)
Voting by text messaging begins immediately after our set and lasts for one hour afterwards
The band who gets the most votes via text messaging gets to move forward in the contest
Text the word HANDCUFFS to 99161

FREE SHOW:
THE HANDCUFFS
Wednesday, July 12
JOE'S ON WEED STREET
Chicago, IL
(940 W. Weed St. -- 1 block south of North Ave. / 1/2 block east of Sheffield)
The Handcuffs showtime: 10 p.m. sharp
The battle of the bands competition starts at 8 p.m.
(two other bands perform right before The Handcuffs)
FREE SHOW -- 21 and over!

We are the only Chicago band in this contest with any female members,
so we really have something to prove.
Oh, and if we win the entire Lollapalooza contest, Emily and Chloe have agreed to kiss -
we'll even videotape the kiss and post it on our website.
So get your cell phones ready to text message your votes on Wednesday night!

Thanks for your support!
Love,
The Handcuffs
