Congratulations to Dallas-based indie rockers Airline as they took the venue vote last Saturday.  The Road to RedGorilla showcase happened in Deep Ellum’s 20-year music venue staple, Club Dada.  With the help of John Solis and Method Entertainment, the night was a rockin’ success.  Sunward, Hendrick, and Airline all represented RedGorilla as they have already been chosen for the 2009 festival.  With uniquely different sounds, the votes were extremely close all the way up to the closing of the voting booth.  

Airline’s music has been described as “indie rock that avoids pretension or complication with tunes clean, catchy and compelling.”  The Dallas Observer describes Airline’s debut release Farewell Republica as “detailed, dramatic and not a little dense, this is local music of rare insight, by a band demanding a following.” After witnessing Airline’s live performance on Saturday night, it is apparent the guys have the ability to bring their recorded material to the stage.  If you simply can’t wait until RedGorilla Music Fest in March to check Airline out visit their myspace page for music at

NOTeNEF Promotions and the Road to RedGorilla team are packing their bags and hitting the road to deliver music lovers a taste of the excitement and talent the RedGorilla Music Festival brings to Austin every year.

Every March thousands of music lovers and artists flock to the streets of Austin, Texas for one of the largest and most anticipated weeks in the music industry. The RedGorilla Music Festival is proud to be a part of these events and in 2009 will showcase nearly 350 independent artists on ten stages.

The event coordinators at RedGorilla have partnered with NOTeNEF Promotions to  create the Road to RedGorilla. This winter, RedGorilla is traveling to five new markets showcasing independent talent to satisfy the musical hunger for fans that just can’t wait for the buffet of artists in Austin.

The Road to RedGorilla begins in Kansas City, MO on November 22 where KC favorites Pomeroy, Making Movies, and Your Electric Grandmother will perform at Jerry’s Bait Shop (the Lee Summit Location).  On December 6, Road to RedGorilla hosts indie favorites The Winter Sounds and Part Bear as they are scheduled to perform along side folk rock’s Sonia Leigh at Tasty World in Athens, GA. The traveling showcase will reach Dallas on December 13th as well as Orlando and St. Louis after the new year.

The RedGorilla team is inviting fans to come support their favorite band and to discover some of the hottest new independent music. Fan support at The Road to RedGorilla showcase will help one artist in each market stand out amongst the hundreds performing during one of the busiest weeks in the music industry.

Each artist showcasing at the Road to RedGorilla events has already been selected to perform at the RedGorilla Music Fest in Austin next March.  However, these lucky artists also have the opportunity to be selected by fan votes at the Road to RedGorilla event and receive a prize package including a prime time slot at the 2009 festival, a featured artist notation in the RedGorilla program guide, and an opportunity to win a spot on the 2009 festival compilation CD which has 1000 hard copies pressed and 5000 download card distributed at the festival in Austin.
