    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 to see how to get your band, or a band you think has potential, in.
