Okay, so my band, The Midnightmares (or as it is spelled in the voting list, The Midnightmarres), is up for Best Punk Band in CT.
Voting ends tomorrow, and I was hoping that the power of Fark could help me/us out.
Obviously, you want to hear the band. Well, go have a free album:
http://themidnightmares.bandcamp.com/
(The next one... is going to be so much better. And I'll come back and give you that one free, as well).
Want to know a little about us?
http://www.themidnightmares.com
And if you can go to the site and vote for us as Best Punk Band In CT? I would really, really appreciate it. It means a lot to me/us.
The voting is here:
http://ct-survey.wehaaserver.com/survey-16-the_2013_connecticut_musi c_ awards.html
They won't spam you, you don't have to be from CT, and we're under Best Punk Band as "The Midnightmarres".
Thank you for any help you throw our way.

 And I'll be here all day to take everything you guys throw my way...

Thanks! :) You have your own special color on here for a reason ;)

It's a new thing - they started it last year.  Previously, there were three - Fairfield, New Haven, and Hartford - all run through the local Advocate sites.  Last year, they made it a state-wide thing where they actually gave the bands awards and it helped them get better shows.  So I really would like to see us win this thing.  After 3 years as a band, we could use the boost.

Actually, it's even worse than that under Best Overall, they have you as "The Midnirghtmares".  Which just makes me think, "ERMAHGERD, MIDNIRGHT!!!"

Goat Herder are actually a good band, fun times... just started up in New Haven.  So cool. Good to see some love for the other good bands around this state (of which there are many)

I threw one out to "2 Virgins" figuring I stood a pretty good chance of helping out another couple of Farkers.

I know, we get that a lot. It's easy to forget that there are any other bands at all, due to how great we are, but yes, there are. :)

Most of them seem to be focused around New Haven/New London, though. Lots of good bands/people, but probably because there are way more venues and it's more of a college town.  We're definitely the anomaly for Fairfield County and Stamford, which is pretty  much all cover bands and metal.

Done, good luck and we're all counting on you or something

Registration was obnoxious so I just put down "Journey with Steve Perry" as a write in for every category

If you don't opt in, they will never so much as send you a confirmation e-mail, for what that's worth.

Connecticut?  I'll vote for Max Creek circa 1987 at the old Agora Ballroom.  Nothing else.

Thanks, dude. :)

I hope everyone is also taking the free CD and maybe even liking it, but seriously, it's very cool of everyone who is helping out :)

Been hit or miss on the songs for me. A few so far that I could put into my rotation.

Honestly, I don't love the way some of them were mixed, or the way we ended up playing them a little slower than we would normally. It was our first time in the studio, so it was a learning experience.  Glad you liked some of them, though!
