AOC Community Media is now recruiting local, young unsigned bands to perform their original music live on its new music program, Threshold.

Bands interested in being featured onto Threshold should upload a sample of their music to AOC Community Media’s Facebook page or email a sample to info@aocinc.org. Threshold will be held on an invitation-only basis. Bands are only allowed to play original music, and lyrics must not include expletives. Bands will get two 21-minute live sets to perform using their own instruments and equipment.

“Our goal is to provide a safe and creative venue for young artists to express themselves, show their talent and create buzz about their passion,” said Ed Bowie, AOC executive director. “A local band or musician looking to gain exposure cannot ask for a better place to do it than on live television.”

AOC held its first installment of Threshold on Friday, Feb. 24, which showcased local rock bands Insidious Downfall and High Octane.
