imeem Searches for Treasure Island Music Festival Openers



Artists and bands who want to play on a bill featuring The Raconteurs, Justice, Vampire Weekend, and TV on the Radio may now have a golden opportunity. Last week, imeem, the social media network, launched its search for two acts to perform at next month's Treasure Island Music Festival. After artists submit original songs online by 11:59 PM on July 28th, the panel of judges consisting of representatives from imeem, Another Planet Entertainment, Noise Pop, and SF's The Independent, will pick 20 of them. They will announce the finalists on August 1st, letting voters on imeem will have their say on who should go live. For more information on the contest, dubbed "Mutiny & Mayhem," or to listen to a playlist of songs by some of the festival's featured artists, visit the Treasure Island Music Festival page on imeem.
