Published Jan 22, 2008Do you want your band to join the ranks of Marilyn Manson, Gene Simmons, Swollen Members, the Flaming Lips, Liz Phair and Sam Roberts? These are just a few past participants of New Music West who've reached varying degrees of musical success and embarrassment in subsequent years. Over 200 acts will perform at 30 venues for the only annual music showcase in the West. No word yet on who the big name performers will be, but all the usual music biz suspects will be buzzing like flies over the most promising new acts of '08.
Still the "boldest new music event" after 17 years, New Music West takes place from May 14 to 18 in Vancouver, BC. Submission deadline is February 1, 2008 and you can enter through Sonicbids or NewMusicWest.com.
