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 http://www.myspace.com/airlinemusic

Online votes for the Dallas artists will run until December 30.  Vote for your favorite artist at http://contest.flyfi.com/redgorilla08/vote/ and click on Dallas to vote.

With deep roots in Orlando, Fla., this energetic quintet is a mash up of the Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Ramones, and The Flaming Lips. The boys came together earlier this year and have been cranking out a slew of original material since. Their flawless renditions of funky indie-pop/rock tunes have sufficiently dazzled the Orlando area and now the band is ready to share them with you. Come out and see XOXO entertain the crowd at Will’s Pub in Orlando, Fla., on January 10, 2009. Conness Productions and NOTeNEF Promotions teamed up to invite XOXO, Mumpsy, The Beauvilles, and Poverty Branch. All bands will be featured at the 2009 RedGorilla Music Festival from March 18-21. And make sure to vote for your favorite band following the January 10 show. The winner will receive a feature promotional package at the festival, and at the end of The Road the band with the most votes collectively will win a spot on the RedGorilla Music Festival Compilation CD.

This indie-pop/rock group from Orlando, Fla. Formed in 2005 and is ready to take their shiny brand of pop to the next level. Thanks to strong mid-60’s style melodies (Think, The Beatles) and the influential energy of the punk scene (Misfits, The Stooges) Mumpsy delivers a solidly original sound wrapped neatly in a pretty pop bow. Mumpsy will be sharing their talents on The Road To RedGorilla on January 10, 2009 at Will’s Pub in Orlando, Fla. They will be joined by fellow Florida rockers XOXO, The Beauvilles, and Poverty Branch and will be competing for a prime time spot on the RedGorilla Music Festival in March 2009.
