As, we hope, you know already, the showcase is this weekend! And we are running around quite a bit, in preparation for the big day. One of the things we have done is taken to the radio. You might have missed A Waste Odyssey, but they were in the UMFM studios last Friday doing the Thank God Its Free Range show with Michael Elves. The boys performed a live set and talked with Michael. You can check out the live session here, as well as past performances by Zoppa and other artists.


 And that is not the last you will hear from Michael or I’m Trying Bands, this Friday you will hear both Zoppa as well as Little House on the same show. Both bands will be playing live and doing an interview, and make sure you listen in to the Little House set, as the boys will be giving away free tickets to the show! Have your phones ready. 

On top of that, all the members of I’m Trying, will be in the studio at UMFM on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00pm with Jared McKetiak on his show The Sounds of Silence, we will be talking and playing some music from the bands, perhaps some more tickets to give away!
