RFT: Rockin’ Full Tape

June 1, 2007 at 5:01 pm | Posted in Events, Lauren Reid, mixtape, summer | 8 Comments

To prepare for this year’s RFT Music Showcase taking place at various locations in the Loop, I’ve gone through their grandoise list of scheduled bands to compile a mixtape of the most promising sounds. Keep in mind these are only my personal favorites of what I was able to hear. It’s mainly indie pop/rock with a few surprises thrown in. All tracks can be found as free samples online, ususally on myspace pages but on occasion discovered after a little hunting on a band’s or label’s webpage.

A setlist, times, and stage locations can be found here: RFT Music Showcase 2007 Myspace Page

More on the showcase later, and onto the track listing!
