In this entry: free MP3s from the Kansas City Bear Fighters, Barclay Martin, Softee, Cowboy Indian Bear, the Irietions and Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company, playing in that order at showcase venue McCoy's.
The Pitch Music Showcase is this Thursday night. In the meantime, we'll be giving you an audio-visual taste of the 28 bands, DJs, rappers and solo artists who are playing for your $5 (buy wristband here) by posting MP3s and photos for, hopefully, all of them. Many of the songs the artists contributed have never been released until now.
Remember, there are many more acts nominated in the awards than just the ones playing on showcase night. Read about all 126 nominees in our Official Showcase Guide.
