Indie Music Bus Act of the Month SeriesWe want to run another Act of the Month Series without submissions or fan votes. This is how I think it could work. Many of you have “rosters” or lists of some kind of the indie acts you love and support most right? Would you support suggesting your top 2 or 3 to us for an Act of the Month Feature here at IMB? Your part can be anonymous if you like. Our A&R will review the participants till we have 5 acts. Next the stories, music and websites of those acts will put in front of industry judging panel. Judging with be done either on a secret Facebook group or a section here on IMB or via email.

Some of you might be thinking, what’s in it for us? For one, you’re helping the acts you love. Those of you who want to be public with your suggestions, we can work something out!

For the judges(5), it will take about 30 minutes to an hour each month to judge for our Act of the Month.
