Let the March Musical Madness Begin!

Back in 2007-2008 or so, Hunter Hawk began a cool feature on what I believe was the then Guide Live website (forgive my bad memory, as I’ve slept since then). He did a March Madness style battle of local bands. I loved the concept, and I regretted that he did not make it a yearly tradition. Well, I think it’s time to bring back the March Madness.

Below is my bracket of 32 of the strongest local musicians in our community. I opted not to include larger, more nationally known acts such as Leon Bridges, St. Vincent, and even Sarah Jaffe. Instead, these are artists that are still making new music and playing regularly around the metroplex area. I have seeded these acts as I see appropriate, though I’ve changed up the map, and in each battle, I listed the artists alphabetically. Your job is simple: vote in each battle on the artist you feel most deserving to move forward. Below you’ll find both the bracket and a voting ballot.

This round will end Thursday night at 11:59 CST, and on Friday, round two of my March Musical Madness will begin. Happy voting, and may the best act win!
