Austin Showcase Update and Caffeine Induced Ramblings

Posted: February 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

Hi folks!

We have been incredibly busy reading emails, listening to bands from all over the world, and generally drinking way too much tea and coffee. I am proud to say that the late nights, used cell phone minutes, and eye strain has all been worth it!

We currently have 25 acts from all over the world performing at the very first “North By North Austin” Festival, taking place at Weirdo’s in N. Austin, and we still have many more acts submitting for us to choose from. I don’t want to brag, but I think we’ve got ourselves a mighty contender.

We will be offering a weeks worth of incredible music from March 13th-18th. Free admission, food and drink specials, easy access from downtown, and located on 3 acres of land… Plenty of room for everybody! The venue will be bringing in art venders from Austin and beyond to offer a wide variety of gift ideas, and bands will undoubtedly have lots of merchandise for sale. We encourage you to help these ambitious, talented folks try to make it to the next level!

If you are making it to SXSW and want to get away from the inevitable clusterfuckery of 6th street, we cordially invite you to come on over, have a drink, watch some incredible artists and bands, and sit for a spell… You may just find your next favorite artist!

Full lineup to be announced soon. If you are an artist or know someone who is looking to showcase their talent in Austin, have them send an EPK and/or all digital media to INSTANTCLASSICRECORDS@GMAIL.COM for consideration.

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be putting on this event, and we look forward to having a great time, making lots of new friends, and not getting a whole lot of sleep.

Let’s do this! Stay tuned for a complete lineup!
