San Francisco, CA. (Top40 Charts/ Lollapalooza 2007 Official Website) - Berkeley based band KAURA, is representing indie bands throughout the country and the SF Bay Area in particular in its bid to play Lollapalooza 2007. Jane's Addiction singer and Lollapalooza Founder Perry Ferrell hand picked 20 bands from the 100 bands who made it to Round No 2 on Sunday Night to proceed to Round No 3. Voting continues until Midnight on July 20th and people can vote every day. The Top 5 bands will then go to Chicago to battle live in concert in front of Perry Ferrell for the 2 slots available.

Kaura, are hoping that their small but dedicated following will score them a slot in Chicago. "We take a DIY approach to everything and we have no label or corporate backing like other bands in the contest have," said drummer Benjamin Jones on Monday. "Every vote we get is coming from our fans and people who want to help."

The band, who was invited last year to open for TOOL in Sacramento last summer by Bill Graham Presents, and had A Perfect Circle's Paz Lenchantin guest on their debut EP, is dying for a chance to compete live in the last round in Chicago. "Our live show is what has gotten us this far," singer Malcolm Guess explained. "We are going to bring a little bit of Burning Man and Berkeley to Chicago!" If the band wins they will be sharing the stage with a lineup that includes Muse, Ben Harper, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Pearl Jam, and Iggy and the Stooges.

To vote for Kaura go here:

Participants are allowed to vote once a day. The Top 5 will be announced on July 21st
