Paper Tiger Kick Off Show is March 20, 21, & 22. Transmission operating in San Antonio is big news. More soon on this developing story.
My first thoughts are: WOW: SKYLAR SPENCE (fka SAINT PEPSI)?!?!, Ryan Hemsworth, Mitski, Iceage, Surfer Blood and more .. this lineup by Transmission is huge news. Transmission operates Fun Fun Fun Fest, Mohawk, Red7 and also recently opened an office in Dallas. They bring some of the most cutting edge talent to Austin and host shows that are the envy of San Antonio. Well, drool no longer, the company that brought you all your favorite acts to central TX will now office in San Antonio.
Transmission's impact will vary, they may cut into Korova, Twin Productions, 502 Bar or ScoreMore's market share. I feel they won't. In my opinion, they all serve different segments of the demo. Transmission will also put San Antonio on the map as a destination for artists to perform. Transmission has the ear of agents across the country. Those bands who schedule an entire tour without room to squeeze in a San Antonio date, will now know to put SA in their TX visit (Philly, DC & NYC are closer to each other than Dallas, Houston & San Antonio).
