Welcome to the new Web Jams

WL Web Jams is back!
That's right folks, we're finally back in front of the mic and ready to bring you the very best in local music from around our fair state.  Our Web Jams competition has changed up just a bit.  We're running two bands head-to-head for a whole month this time!  The winner will compete in our final head-to-head against the winners from other months in a monster Web Jams throw down in December.
We're also introducing our First Listen feature which you can see to the right.  We want artists to be able to showcase their latest work, and we want you, our readers, to be able to sample all sorts of new music.  So if you're a band interested in taking part in First Listen drop us an email with an mp3 of the song you'd like us to feature.
Also on tap we'll be featuring Max Bowen's fabulous Citywide Blackout blog.  Max has been promoting music on the local music scene for some time now and we're excited to be partnering with him.  He also anchors a radio show every Saturday from 6-8 p.m. featuring interviews with entertainers and local musicians from across Massachussets, so give it a listen and if he asks, tell him we sent you!
And finally we will be featuring a meet the artist spot where we will be highlighting bands from around Massachusetts and asking them some pithy questions.  If you'd like to take part in the Web Jams head-to-head, or First Listen, or Meet the Artist then drop us an email and we'll make sure to get you into the show!




Meet the Artist - Highway Ghosts
