If you have a band and you guys don't suck, you should probably enter this contest that Awesome, Inc. and Imeem.com are running. Enter here for a chance to win the opening slot on the bill of their CMJ party on Nov. 1 (see above flier) featuring Thunderbirds Are Now!, Lo-Fi-Fnk, and the Harlem Shakes, plus DJ sets by our girls from CSS and our boys from Car Stereo (Wars) and Finger on the Pulse. And perhaps most interesting is the fact that this will be the first U.S. appearance for Sweden's Lo-Fi-Fnk. Okay, admittedly, I know nothing about this band, but this Hot Chip remix of their "Steppin' Out" has me intrigued:
Lo-Fi-Fnk Steppin' Out (the Two Beauties from Hot Chip remix)
We premiered this mashup a while back, and VH1's Best Week Ever proceeded to call it "frighteningly cool" and "the hippest mash-up in history." We tend to agree.
