The 10th & final Midwest Best Showcase went down in history as we gave paid out another $1000 to deserving indie artist. Live from Studio 618, the room was filled with a melting pot of artist & fans from across the Midwest, South, & East Coast, with more then 200 people in attendance.
There were a lot of great things happening including 1st time ever performances from Springfield, Illinois artist Fly Rich, & R & B singer Zee from St.Louis, giveaways from Petty Cash Clothing, & of course we gave away a stack.
With the Midwest Best we have now 10 times rewarded artist for their ability to draw a crowd, with the person bringing the most people out that night walking away with at least $500. Also, now 10 times we have rewarded artist for bringing exceptional talent, uniqueness, & energy that stands out above the rest, by giving the best performance $500.
