Hey, all you garage bands. In case you haven’t heard, Mötley Crüe is giving one lucky--uh, we mean talented--band the chance to open up for them on their 2009 U.S. tour. You can still enter until September 21.

The winning band is promised the opening slot, management and recording deals, 25,000 bones and thousands in new gear from Gibson. Read the rules or you may be subject to a karate chop.

OK, so your band sucks and you don’t want to participate? You can still show your support for local talent. We searched here and found several Dallas and Fort Worth bands vying for your votes. They're listed after the jump. -Courtney Clenney

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
