 The Hunt for South Africa’s Best Unsigned Talent Continues in July

Converse Get Out of the Garage 2013

Converse South Africa announced that the hugely successful Get Out Of The Garage
platform is back with a bang in 2013. Last year, 138 unsigned, local
bands from a variety of genres submitted their demos to Converse via
SoundCloud and YouTube links for the chance to record in New York and
play at the iconic 100 Club in London. Matthew Mole was crowned the
inaugural South African winner. This is his story:

Converse is again on the hunt for unsigned talent to get out of the
garage and be transported to the UK to play this epic venue later this
year. Then the winner will be whipped off to New York to record at the
Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn. Whether you are a punk rocker, electro
fundi, kickass proponent of kwaito, or a hip hop playa, Converse wants
to hear your sound.

From the 9th of July until the 8th of August, visit and upload a SoundCloud version of your best track. Then on the 15th
of August, judges Catherine Grenfell, Jon Savage, and Reason will have
narrowed down the entries to SA’s Top 10 unsigned artists. Converse will
then showcase these acts on Facebook, where South African music fans
can vote for their favourite. Simply by voting, fans have a chance to
join their favourite band VIP style to London for the gig.

Get Out Of The Garage, share your music and showcase your talent via the app at and be part of the conversation on Twitter @Converse_Africa with the #Play100Club hashtag. The overall winner will be announced on the 16th of September 2013, and soon after take the stage at Rocking the Daisies 2013.
