The Exceptional Radio Network (www.exceptionalradio.com) launches a brand new season of their local music show, A-Town Rocks on location. The show is taking a mini-tour of Southwest Atlanta to promote and celebrate the return of the Southwest Music Festival. The festival will take place on Sept 29 and 30, 2012 at Cascade Field located at Cascade Road and Interstate 285. The event returns for its 22nd year.
During the mini-tour, A-Town Rocks will provide information on becoming a vendor, sponsor, performer and a participant of this great community event. In the midst of the excitement; listeners and patrons will be able to visit popular Southwest Atlanta venues such as the R&B Wing Café (Fulton Industrial), West End Mall and Metroplex (Metropolitan Parkway).
“A-Town Rocks prides itself in knowing your music, knowing your town; so it’s only natural that we would promote this great community event,” Dominique Huff CEO/Founder of the Tenth Amendment Media Group said. “Anytime you have music, celebration and community, you have A-Town Rocks. We commend Another Way Out for continuing to produce this event and we look forward to many more years of the music festival.”
Originally started as a picnic, the Southwest Atlanta Music Festival has grown into a highly-anticipated event that draws people not only from Southwest Atlanta but from neighboring areas as well.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the programs and initiatives of the Cascade area non-profit Another Way Out, Inc. AWO (www.anotherwayout.org) serves youth in southwest Atlanta by placing at-risk teens with community leaders, professionals, and honorable individuals willing to dedicate their time and talents to the next generation.
The festival features a kiddy village, live entertainment, food vendors, merchandise and art vendors; and great community excitement.
A-Town Rocks, a spin-off of the popular Sounds from the Underground features only Metro Atlanta/State of Georgia independent artists of all genres. The show provides artist info and event listings. It can be heard on Fridays at 10pm EST at www.exceptionalradio.com. In addition to promoting the SW Music Festival, A-Town is also promoting the 2nd Annual Mableton Rocks Music Festival. A few other events will be added throughout the season.
During the tour, artists are invited to come out and submit their music. Music can be either as mp3s or on CD. Clean and dirty music welcomed! Artists will also be interviewed on the spot.
