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.
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

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.
