We sat down with Musical Family Tree's Jon Rogers last year to talk about the inception of the New Music Showcase,
which returns this Saturday at Radio Radio. The Internet community/archive/blog (and soon to be nonprofit) celebrates all things local music, and regularly curates shows with the best local lineups in town. We insist: if you care about homegrown music, you must be at Musical Family Tree's New Music Showcase this weekend. Twenty-nine Indiana bands will perform at the second iteration of this all day fest (with no overlap from last year's lineup); the groups run the gamut from sludgy rock to stinging hip-hop. On the lineup: Sweet Poison Victim, Broken Light, S.M. Wolf, Scanlines, Bonesetters, Male Bondage, Raw McCartney, Skin Conditions, Dino DNA, Faux Paw, The Icks, Triptides and so many more.
Hit up their playlist, put together by Rogers, for a taste of Saturday's lineup.
