Nashville’s Road To Bonnaroo returns to the Mercy Lounge for a second round of spirited musical competition tonight (3/26). Performers competing for a spot at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival include Wild Cub, Five Knives, The Running, Tesla Rossa, Static Revival, Marquee Mayfield, Nikki Lane, and Evan P. Donahue.
RTB 2012, presented by BMI, the Nashville Scene, Mercy Lounge, and Bonnaroo, will send one band per each of the three rounds to the outdoor summer festival scheduled for June 7-10 in Manchester, TN. To select the winners, an industry panel of local journalists, bloggers, and 8 off 8th hosts provide half the verdict, while the votes of audience members will determine the other half. There is no cover charge to attend.
Round One of RTB 2012 already went to By Lightning. After tonight, only one performance spot will be up-for-grabs and the winner of that one will be determined April 16.
