In November Converse and OurStage joined forces to bring you the 2nd “Get Out of the Garage” Music Contest. Converse, along with Guitar Center and Journeys, wanted to send the best new acts in Rock and Urban music to play a career-making showcase in Austin this March. The gig in question? An opening slot for last year’s “Get Out of the Garage” winner, the Flying Machines, at the Levi’s/FADER fort! Over 6,500 artists were judged by fans on OurStage for a chance to play what could very well be their big break. From that 6,500, the competition was narrowed down to 10 high-ranking acts. Of those finalists, 2 acts were selected for the grand prize performance by a panel of judges who determined the winners based on their creativity, entertainment value, lyrics, melody and music. The grand prize winners will also be the lucky recipients of a $1,000 Guitar Center gift certificate and $1,000 in cash from OurStage! And now the moment you’ve been waiting for. . . the “Get Out of the Garage” Music Contest Winners!
