The Des Moines Music Coalition at the Greater Des Moines Partnership have announced the 15 acts/songs that will be featured on the CarpeDM Music Mix, a CD that will be given out at the Iowa Reception March 9 at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
I was part of a panel of judges that helped narrow down the initial list of applicants, then an online vote was used to determine the 15 acts to represent the city.
The bands featured are: Bonne Finken, Bright Giant, Brother Trucker, Chad Elliott, Dustin Smith & The Sunday Silos, Foxholes, Gloom Balloon, Holy White Hounds, Mary McAdams, Mighty Shady, Mr. Baber’s Neighbors, North of Grand, The Nadas, The Poison Control Center, The Uniphonics.
