We know it’s your dream to open your local news morning show and headline the Hard Rock Cafe next to Ford’s Theater. I don’t know what tastes better: the acme of success or Hard Rock Nachos.

From Metromix DC

Are you a local band, singer or other musical act that has the talent to make it big? Metromix and the D.C. Lottery want to help you get famous! Enter our D.C.’s Hottest Five competition and you could win a recording package, worldwide digital release party and your own headlining concert at the world famous Hard Rock Cafe!

We’re looking for acts from all genres; rock, hip-hop, pop, country, jazz, German polka…as long as you’re good at what you do, you can enter! All we ask is that you have at least one original song to submit. (Sorry, cover bands!) Submission is open now and ends at 11:59 on July 26!

After the submission period ends, we’ll select the 25 best acts and post them on dc.metromix.com, along with a photo, bio and a link to where our Metromix readers can hear some of their tunes, then vote on which group they think is the best. The top five bands will each get a spot on WUSA*9 CBS’s morning show, and then go on to perform at the Hard Rock Cafe on August 27 in a final showdown concert.

ENTER!  July 13-July 26: Calling all bands! Fill out the form below in its entirety to be eligible for the contest. Your bio should be short and sweet (no more than 1000 characters), but should give us an idea of who you are and what sets you apart from the countless other acts in the area. You must also provide a link to a website featuring your music, either your official site or blog, MySpace, Facebook, or anything else. If you don’t currently have music online, we suggest using SonicBids.com.
