Unsigned SA Bands, This One’s For You

Plain 500x500 GOTG #247E2E2Having gone to the varsity I did (the kind where you spend four years drunk), the only 100 Club I’d ever heard of involved 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes with no toilet breaks.

Believe it or not, I actually managed to achieve that admirable feat not once, but TWICE during my varsity career, BOOM!

But there’s another 100 Club I want to tell you guys about, it opened in London in 1942, has hosted some of the most influential artists on the PLANET during its 70 year history and is now opening its doors to one lucky unsigned SA band to melt faces there later this year.

Converse is driving this competition through their Facebook page (check it out here). All you have to do to enter the “Get Out Of The Garage” competition is to upload your best original song and a short biography via the Facebook app on the Converse page.



From there, all entries get judged by Zulu Boy, John Savage and Garick Williams, who will then narrow them down to the final 10 after which point it goes to a public vote where SA can vote for their favourites and stand a chance to join your band in p1mped out VIP style for the gig.

What’s rad is they are accepting submissions from every imaginable genre, the only requirement is that you have to be unsigned and you’re in.

Here’s an idea of the crazy bands that take to the stage at the 100 Club. These guys are hilarious, they call themselves Little Roy and they rock Nirvana covers reggae style.



How flippin’ IRIE was that?!

I’ll be tracking this comp as it unfolds, entries close 8th of July and winners will be announced on August 6th 2012.

I’ll also be flying to London to cover the entire event as part of the VIP entourage, how amazing is that shit?!?!?!!?

Ok, that was a lie. But who knows, maybe Converse will find it in their kind hearts and help a Tiger out yo!
