Very cool. Vote here. Here’s the note from Kovacs:
Thought you might be interested to know that Kovacs and the Polar Bear has been chosen as one of 10 finalists in an MTV competition to play Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores this week. MTV picked us from several hundred (if not more) bands, and now it’s gone to voting.
It looks like we’re up against mostly, if not all, bands who have label support and publicists and such. We may very well be the only true “indie” band in the mix, but I think we’ve got a good shot. I also believe that coming from a small, tight-knit music community like Asheville is a huge advantage, because a win for anyone from this scene is a win for everyone in this scene. We’ve already had a ton of support from other bands helping us get the word out about voting, and we’re really appreciative and humbled by their help.
The voting is incredibly easy and doesn’t require giving any information at all. Just a click beneath the Kovacs thumbnail. Anyway, here’s the link if you should find it newsworthy. Much appreciated!
