Help My My My play the Billboard Music Awards

Posted by Frank Krolicki

Chicago indie band My My My are in the running to play the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on May 22nd, to be televised to a national audience. Kind of a big deal, right?

They need your help make it happen. There are 18 bands across the country competing, and My My My have made it to the final three in the Midwest region. If they are chosen as the winner, they'll road trip it out to Vegas compete "battle of the bands"-style against the five other regional winners. The ultimate winner will get to play the awards. Click here to vote. You can vote as often as you like until April 8th.

My My My are the only Chicago band in the running and are well deserving of the opportunity. They make excellent, unique music, put on a hell of a live show and are just generally awesome. To learn more, check out WCR reviews of the band's last two records: Leather Silk and Little Cat Plays the Alpha Rave. You can also listen to a couple tracks below.


  1. these guys are competing? they is really crappy. Fucking lame-o 30 year olds playing, "INDIE," crap. Time to get a real job.

  2. Strong words. If you're going to go around spewing venom about people you should really not hide behind being "anonymous." That's really "lame-o."

  3. Hey Frank,

    Is this better? I'm sorry about the anonymous post, I just feel the need to be post a comment about a particular brand of music I don't like. I didnt know that my name really meant anything.

    I just don't feel this is great music. Not worthy of a write up at least. If you want great chicago music, check out MOON FURIES. They are a great collective, indie electro pop band from here in Chicago/ They have a myspace. YEAH...MYSPACE!

  4. There's a big difference between saying you don't like something and insulting people in a troll-ish way.

    I agree about Moon Furies; very familiar with the band, considering one of the members writes for this site...
