Triangle bands team up on their own

Not sure how long this has been around, but I just got an invite to the Team Triangle Reverbnation Sponsored Songs Program on Facebook. Here's how group founders Adam Eckhardt (A Rooster for the Masses) and James Hepler (IWTDI, Sorry About Dresden) describe it:

On June 24, 2009, reverbnation teamed up with Microsoft Windows and scores of bands to launch a new musical/promotion experiment. Bands help promote Windows, Windows helps promote bands.

It is a decent enough idea, and many bands from Central NC chose to participate. The only downside is this. For some reason, Reverbnation and Windows decided they would promote bands that are already popular over bands that aren't so much.

Several members of bands from the Triangle region of North Carolina decided that we don't have to be discouraged by the fact that we're somewhere in the middle or at the bottom of a mix of thousands of bands. If we team up we can promote ourselves AND each other.

This is the place where you can see many of the local participants of the Reverbnation/Windows song sponsorship program, listen to their songs, and pass them on. Every band listed here gets 50 cents for every unique download of their song. So listen, and if you like it, download it and tell your friends.
