Renewing the Call
We posted this once already, but we really want to reach as many bands as possible. Please pass on this call for submissions to anyone you know who is in a band in LA. The more, the merrier!
We want to hear local bands! LAist is going to start reviewing local bands, so we need demos, CDs, tapes, MP3s or any other form of audio you can throw at us. If you recorded it, we will write about it. We prefer full songs, not samples, and the more you can give us the better the review will be.
So, if you want your band covered on LAist, write to us here. Tell us a little bit about yourself, what kind of music you play, point us to your website, do a tap dance...doesn't matter, so long as you write us.
