First, we want to congratulate Something Blue and Dying Fire on gaining the most votes in the first and second rounds of voting in the last two East Texas Takeovers.  This means they will be included in our own version of the final four. We still have 2 rounds of voting left to go through out the month of March.  The voting rounds have been bracketed as follows:

Week 2/27-3/4: Winner - Something Blue

Week 3/5-3/11: Winner - Dying Fire

Week 3/12-3/18: Third round of voting (Current Round)

Week 3/19-3/25: Fourth round of voting

Week 3/26-3/30: Voting begins for the final four.

On Saturday, March 31, Chris Cobb will play the winner and the runner-up from the final four on the air.  If you have already submitted us your bands tracks, they will be featured in the East Texas Takeover.

And now, Round 3 of The East Texas Takeover Begins.
