The second annual Get Out of the Garage Music Contest, sponsored by Journeys, Converse, and Guitar Center, launched on Oct. 1st, 2009. Designed to target untapped talent in the artist community, the contest’s Grand Prize winners, Twank Star and Southern Backtones, were chosen out of more than 5,000 entries to receive an all-expenses-paid trip to play the Get Out of the Garage showcase at the Levi’s/FADER Fort in Austin, TX on March 18th, 2010!
In addition to showcasing this year’s Get Out of the Garage Music Contest winners, the Levi’s/FADER concert will also feature last year’s winner, Flying Machines, as well as special performances by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, and a DJ set by Passion Pit.
