Britain’s Rock Over London showcase comes stateside

New York, NY February 22nd, 2008 – The showcase series that launched the US career of Amy Winehouse returns with a host of new British acts and a new name Rock Over London on March 11th. The traveling showcase will then ship out to Austin for South by South West on March 15th and Los Angeles on March 17th. From Camden to Soho, the clubs and bars of the London music scene are exploding with creativity, particularly in the underground and alternative music genres. To give the US a taste of this, Rock Over London is themed around a musical night out in London offering a menu of some of the most anticipated acts of 2008 including Scouting for Girls (UK No. 1 artists), Dan le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip, Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong, Sway, the Pigeon Detectives and Emmy the Great. Additional Rock Over London activities in New York include a invite only reception and a late night after show at Pianos hosted by the London acoustic club The Local.
