We're doing a totally original and not-at-all-derivative thing! The Itch has decided that it's time for a listener-voted tournament to crown a winner of the prestigious "Future Episode Recipient" title. We've chosen 16 bands that got frequent airplay on our radio show but have yet to be discussed on the podcast. We're pitting them against each other this month to see who you love most, and we'll do an episode on the winner. It might be a discography ranking, a history lesson, or even an interview with a band member. Either way, it's all in your hands.
You can vote on the first round directly at this survey link (bit.ly/itchmb1), or you can vote in our Twitter polls for each matchup (or both, if you're that kind of person). We'll announce the first round winners and the second round brackets next week. Thanks for participating, and happy March Bandness!
