Blowupradio.com is an online radio station that supports and promotes independent music from artists across Garden State. Run by Lazlo, the station hosts an annual benefit for the Spondylitis Association of America, an organization that supports a genetic condition his wife has. He is currently looking for artists for annual compilation and live broadcast to benefit.
Every October Blowupradio.com publishes a compilation and hosts a webathon where musicians perform live, usually from Lazlo’s house. Last year, the pandemic forced him to manage things remotely through Skype. Since spondyloarthritis causes a weakened immune system, they’ll stick to the remote webathon setup again this year out of caution.
Lazlo is seeking original unreleased songs (which may include acoustic or live versions of previously released songs) for this year’s compilation. Songs must be original – no covers – and artists must agree that songs will remain compilation exclusive until January 1, 2022. The deadline for submitting songs is September, but artists can submit songs now. ‘they wish.
Lazlo is also looking for musicians to perform a 30 minute live set, via Skype for the webathon. As with their standard shows, the video is only for artists and Lazlo to see themselves, while only audio will be played on air. The performance dates will be from Friday October 15 to Sunday October 17. Artists can pre-record a set, but only if it is a performance that has not been broadcast live or previously broadcast.
If you are interested in being part of the project or have any questions, please send an email to Lazlo.
Since their creation in 1983, the Spondyloarthritis Association of America (SAA) has been the face, voice and leading national nonprofit organization that educates, empowers and advocates for people living with spondylitis and its related diseases. Through their extensive work with patients, the medical community and partners, we provide information and resources to help those affected by the disease live better lives and promote research to find a cure.
