Disc Makers is currently in the 8th year of their Independent Music World Series. It's possibly the coolest independent artists' showcase series out there (and the largest in the country). Thousands of artists enter each year for a chance to showcase for industry and win $35,000 in gear and other prizes. The Western region is currently open for submissions. Even if you don't win, the opportunity to schmooze the industry judges alone is worth it. Get details at www.discmakers.com/imws.

Our friends from Disc Makers are going to be at the Road Rally again this year. There are four reasons why you need to stop by Disc Makers' booth:

1. Save $5 when you sign up for the Independent Music World Series. Bring your demo or CD and sign up for $15, $5 off the regular submission fee.

2. Disc Makers clients can trade their CD for a free T-shirt. Drop off the CD you made at Disc Makers and they'll display it proudly, and you'll get a cool T-shirt that you can wear proudly.

3. Get free copies of your demo while you wait. If you run out of demos to hand out, their Duplication Station will make you a few extras.

4. Sign up to win a complete 1,000 CD replication package—including posters—worth $1,800. 1,000 CDs in glorious full-color Digipaks can be yours.

Plus you can meet with Disc Makers' friendly staff and ask them questions about starting your next CD project. OK, that's five reasons.
