OTR: February 8, 2012

I don't know how frequently I'll do these OTR posts, but since I worked through nearly 600 emails overnight, there are some things I wanted to share with you.

1.  Enter to perform at perform at "The Warner Sound at SXSW captured by Nikon".  It's an industry showcase and they'll cover your travel and such if you're the winner. All you have to do is submit a live performance video. The deadline is February 20 at 10am. For information, CLICK HERE. If you're in a San Diego band and planning on attending SXSW, please let me know. There might be an opportunity to play a San Diego party in Texas.

2. Red Bull hosts the Red Bull Music Academy in New Year in the fall and you can APPLY FOR ADMISSION & A SCHOLARSHIP. The thing is pretty cool, with participants getting lectures with industry leaders and artists, studio time, the opportunity to collaborate with other artists and attendees, and perform and/or attend nighttime showcases. Deadline for entries is April 2.

3. Margot and the Nuclear So and So's have a new album, Rot Gut, Domestic, coming out on March 20, and they've released a video for the first single, "Prozac Rock". I love these guys and am sure that they'll be coming through on a proper tour at some point this spring or summer. You can also just stream the track on soundcloud.
