Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

March means college basketball, filling out your brackets, and cheering on your teams.

We thought we’d get in on the fun.

Presenting Phoenix Music Madness, where you can vote for the best local band in the Valley.

Sixteen local bands clash head-to-head, and the band with the most votes progresses to the next round until we get to the Phoenix Phinal Phour.

Vote in the poll below for your favorite band in each matchup. Vote early and vote often! Start an office pool!

Like an NCAA bracket, ours is filled with intrigue. Who can challenge veteran No. 1 seeds Bear Ghost and Fairy Bones? Which Cinderella band stands a chance against scene faves like decker. and Harrison Fjord? Who will win the PRO TEENS vs. Jerusafunk battle, the coy indie rockers or the klezploitation funk-maniacs?

The Phinal Phour will battle it out at a free concert at Rebel Lounge on Wednesday, March 29.

Voting for the first round ends at noon on Tuesday, March 14.

P.S.: Please only vote once per day. We have top people working around the clock to ensure no one stuffs the ballot, at least not too much.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
