Every week, On The Record is inundated with press releases shouting about all-singing, all-dancing band competitions and showcases.

Some band showcases, though, have proven their worth over the years.

Delorentos first came to attention when they won the National Student Music Awards in 2005.

Bands seeking to enter and play at this year’s heats in Dublin, Galway and Cork have until Tuesday to enter.

The IMRO Showcase Tour has also given exposure to The Flaws, Oppenheimer, The Immediate, Fight Like Apes, Rosey and others.

Acts seeking a berth on this year’s tour, which will visit 10 venues countrywide, should email their MySpace details to showcase@imro.ie before next Thursday, February 14th.
