Loves Local Music - Philadelphia Local Music Day is Here! Saturday May 12th!
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia Local Music Day is finally here. Tomorrow all around the city a handful of featured local artists will be heard playing in the establishments of local businesses for the whole day. Since we are also in the business of doing things that "give local musicians more exposure within the Philadelphia community", this sounds like a great idea and hope there's many more to come.

Loves Local Music "is an advocacy organization dedicated to promoting the diverse music scene that Philadelphia continues to foster." That's from the Loves Local Music statement started by Philly native Monika Julien.

From Loves Local Music :
Saturday, May 12, 2012, Loves Local Music will be presenting the first Philadelphia Local Music Day! On Philadelphia Local Music Day, local businesses will be playing recordings of five featured local musicians for one full workday, giving these artists the opportunity to reach new audiences in an alternative setting.

Philadelphia Local Music Day aims to bring more awareness to Philadelphia’s vibrant, talented arts community while encouraging Philadelphians to support the city’s local culture and economy.

This day's featured artists include Cheers Elephant, Bandname, Work Drugs, Buried Beds, and The Extaordinaires. You can download a sampler of all the bands playing today here.

You can hear each of those featured artists playing right now on Rift Listen Live! Rift - Indie Rock.

We jumped the gun and started already... ha!

iradiophilly also has a station dedicated to Local Artists called BYO Listen Live! BYO - Local Artists.

Local bands and artists are encouraged to submit your music to be included for airplay on BYO.

This year's participating locations include: The Rocket Cat Cafe, Honey's Sit N' Eat, Repo Rcords, Art in the Age, Federal Donuts, The Lola Bean, Smak Parlour, Johnny Brenda's, Green Isle Grocery, Ultimo Coffee Bar, Trophy Bikes North, The Abbaye, Honest Tom's Taco Shop, The Marvelous! Music.

You can find the locations on foursquare
