You, With The Guitar. Yeah, You. Wanna Open For Mötley Crüe?

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
