OJR & Kid Freud Advance To Nashville Finals In Road To Roo!

Road To Bonnaroo 2016

This year’s Road to Roo competition, different from the similar “Road to Bonnaroo” competition of years past, has entered the Nashville semi-finals phase, and last night was the first round with a competition at Exit/In featuring Heavy Sole, Kid Freud, OJR, and Omega Swan.  After another intense competition, where each act was allowed to play a longer set than in the first round, Kid Freud and OJR will be moving on to the Nashville finals to face the winners of the second semi-final competition.

The second round of the semifinals is set for March 22 at The Basement East, and will feature The Cold Stares, Daphne & The Mystery Machines, Jess Nolan, and Roots Of A Rebellion.  The two winners from the second semi-final will advance to the Nashville finals at 3rd & Lindsley on March 31 to face off against Kid Freud and OJR, and a Nashville city winner will be named.  The Nashville winner will then face off with other Tennessee regional winners in the state finals at Mercy Lounge on April 4 at 9 p.m., where, finally, a winner will earn a spot at ‘Roo. Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming events contest and congratulations to the advancing bands!
