35 individuals or bands entered SpinTunes #2, and 28 of them managed to enter a round 1 song before the deadline. If you remember there were 11 deadline victims in round 1 of SpinTunes #1, so this is an improvement. So far there have been 2 shadow songs turned in as well, and HOPEFULLY we get a few more shadows before the listening party.
With 28 total entries, eliminations will go as followed:
Round 1: 8 eliminations
Round 2: 8 eliminations
Round 3: 8 eliminations
That will leave 4 bands in the final round.
It will be hosted by me at the following address: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/spintunes
It will officially start at 8PM (EDT) TODAY. I will probably start broadcasting a little early just to make sure everything is set up & ready, but won't start the SpinTunes songs until 8PM. All songs will be available for FREE listen & download right after the LP.
To avoid confusion I'm going to start using EDT instead of EST when I set deadlines. If you're ever confused about when a deadline ends, I'll have a countdown timer linked to above...go by that. The latest bit of confusion was 1% my fault, but 99% Heather's...I'll man up & take full responsibility for that 1%. I'll make the needed edits to previous blogs asap. Feel free to point out anything I missed.
