100 club

In a band? Use social for a chance to to play London’s 100 Club

This is cool. The 100 Club in London attained legendary status in modern British music, having played host to some of the most influential artists on the planet since 24 October 1942.

Now you and your band could have the chance to play there just by using social media.

Renowned shoe brand Converse is looking for South Africa’s best unsigned talent to get out of the garage and be transported to London to play a gig at the 100 Club. The competition allows unsigned music talent from all over South Africa to win a chance to play at The 100 Club later this year, without even leaving their garages!

The music files will be uploaded to the Facebook app using SoundCloud. The judges (Zulu Boy, John Savage and Garick Williams) will then narrow down the entries to South Africa’s top 10 unsigned artists.

Converse will showcase these acts on its Facebook page, where members of the public can vote for their favourites and have the chance to join their favourite band VIP style for the gig.

If you’d like to have a go, check out Converse’s Facebook page. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter with the #Play100Club hashtag. Entries close 8th of July and winners will be announced on August 6th 2012.
