IMA Artists Invade SXSW 2009
It’s the time of year when 80+ music venues in Austin, Texas welcome more than 1,8000 bands to their stages for a jam-packed week of musical madness. Musicians travel from around the globe -sorta like the IMAS – to showcase.
It’s an essential event and this year, March 18-22 is marked off practically everyone in the music industry’s calendar. Days are filled with conferences and panels while music sets the scene for the night.
Music Resource Group will be there. Be sure to stop by booth #301. You can pick up a copy of the 2009 edition of The Musician’s Atlas & score some deals on our interactive AtlasOnline.
Also, due to popular demand…. Our famous Atlas Tonic was brewed with extra vanilla this year! So be sure to sneak a shot.
As if that’s not exciting enough, many of the acts performing are Independent Music Award Winners and Finalists!
We’ll be profiling them in our special SXSW countdown. So watch this spot every day and be sure to mark your personal show schedules.
