Punk Crowdsourcing

votologoThe pioneering LA punk band X helped get me through high school. They’re getting on in years, but they still tour and still put on a pretty good show.

The band has dubbed their spring tour Total Request Live 2009 and they’re letting their fans vote for the songs they’ll play in each city.  There’s an online poll for each stop on the tour with about 40 songs to choose from.

I’m hoping to see them when they come to Boston.

Here are the songs I voted for with links to listen to each on Napster:

Los Angeles [Live]

The Hungry Wolf [LP Version]

Devil Doll [Live]

Burning House Of Love [LP Version]


Are there other bands doing similar things?

If you’re into X, what do you think of my picks?
