Our second look into the possible movers and shakers down olde Austin way. Sounds like the quality is up on other years going by some of these acts.

    Thought some of the SXSW artists were pretty good, tell them to check out a similar event called Sunset Sessions Rock! in June in San Diego. It gives indie alternative bands a chance to play in front of big radio stations from across the country, music supervisors from film, tv & ads, video game programmers, managers and record labels. It costs some dough to play like (2-8k), and you have to actually be good enough to get picked, but it’s a once in a lifetime chance to get in front of all these music industry people that can completely launch a bands career. February’s Sunset Session had 45 bands play to 800 music biz people. Check out info at http://www.sunsetsessions.org to see how to get your band, or a band you think has potential, in.
