Good News For Unsigned SA Bands – “Get Out The Garage” Is Back!

GOTGIf you guys cast your minds far, far, far, far, far back you’ll remember a campaign that ran last year called the Converse “Get Out The Garage” competition which Matthew Mole ended up winning.

The lucky guy got to not only play at the iconic 100 Club in London, but he also got to record at the Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, New York. It was a huge springboard for the guy and he made the very best of it.

The good news is that the competition is back and Converse is once again on the hunt for unsigned local talent to get out the garage and show the world that SA has some flippin SICK talent.

Before we get to the nuts and bolts of how to enter, check out what Matthew got up to last year after winning the Get Out The Garage competition:

 

 

Some pretty epic sheeit going down in that vid. That could be you. All you gots to do is get your shit together, upload your best track to Soundcloud, post it on the Converse Facebook page before the 8th of August and hope for the best.

On the 15th August, judges Catherine Grenfell, Jon Savage and Reason will have narrowed the entries down to a final 10, who will then be showcased on the Converse Facebook page for the public to vote on.

The artist / band with the most votes wins the grand prize which will be announced on the 16th of September.

 

 

The big winner will also have the opportunity to play at this year’s Rocking The Daisies which, judging from the line-up that’s been announced so far, is an honour in itself.

But that’s not all! Call now and you’ll get this free instructional DVD! Joking. Simply by voting for your favourite artist / band from the final 10, you’ll automatically be entered into a competition to join your favourite band VIP style when they travel to London for the 100 Club gig.

Spread the word people and watch this space for competition updates.
