BMI, Mercy Lounge, the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and the Nashville Scene hosted the second round of Road to Bonnaroo 2012 to a packed house at 8 off 8th on Monday night (3/26). Artists competing for a performance slot at the annual summer festival scheduled for June 7-10 in Manchester, TN, included Evan P. Donohue, Wild Cub, The Running, Static Revival, Nikki Lane, Five Knives, Tesla Rossa, and Marquee Mayfield.

Wild Cub emerged as the evening’s winner after delivering an energetic set of percussive, danceable pop with shades of New Wave. Also promising: Evan P. Donohue, who showed his knack for fuzzy pop anthems and brought his buddy Caitlin Rose out for a duet; and Nikki Lane, who has a kind of dark, rockabilly Nancy Sinatra vibe, but unfortunately got stuck with the last slot of the night as the crowd was thinning.
