    Calling all techies to the stage!

    Submissions for Silicon Valley Rocks! 2009 are now open!

    Six spots are available. Bands must be connected to the technology industry (work in it, write songs about it, or use technology in their music) and be willing to play for free to support music education in the schools.

    Last year, what really struck a “chord” with us was how prevalent music is among technology industry professionals, and how much the bands rallied around helping the next generation of geek rockers.  Want to show off your stuff while making a difference?  If you’re in a band (or know someone who is), tell us about it here.

    Be sure to include links to your music and video if possible, and explain how you’re connected to Silicon Valley.  We have several contenders already… For more details, please check the FAQs page.

    Submissions will be open until mid-October, after which the SVR selection committee — a mix of music and tech professionals — will choose the final line-up.

    Can’t carry a tune in a bucket but want to join the fun?  Our registration and donation center is open. Event tickets include entry to the showcase and the after-party featuring the best networking, drinks, and dancing north of San Jose. Ticket purchases are tax deductible. Tickets are $25 or $75 for VIP tickets which include free drinks and food. Tickets can be purchased here.

    On stage or off, we hope to see you at the show!
