As I type this sentence, the Dead 27s are on their way to New York City to take part in VH1's "Make a Band Famous" Competition presented by You Oughtta Know.

The local rock outfit will compete against 23 other bands during tomorrow's 24-hour event. The entire competition will stream live on vh1.com beginning at 8 pm. The livestream will be an uncensored and uncut 24-hour broadcast that features each group participating in unique tasks each hour.

Those tasks could include performing a hit song with toy instruments or busking on the streets of Brooklyn for money. At the end of each hour, bands will continue on or be sent home depending on a judges panel and a fan vote.

In order to vote, you have to have a twitter account. Once you are logged in, tweet with the following hashtags - #mabf #dead27s - throughout the competition. Also, be sure to follow the Dead 27's on Twitter for updates.

The last band standing will receive a performance slot at a Brooklyn music festival and a record deal with Republic Records. They will also earn promotion through VH1's You Oughtta Know organization, which helped Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, and more to get their big break.
