Continuing on to Tramps for the VIP party of DISCmakers Independent Music World Series. After the press party the contest between NYC's best independent bands went on till midnight. After a healthy din din of green salad, black beans and rice, and fresh fruit, I spoke with Thom Jack, owner of the club Spiral on Houston St. He filled me in on the grand prize for that night's winner: $25,000 in recording time, musical instruments, PR, and an indie release. Mixed in with the NY music scene crowd (lots of black jeans and cowboy boots), I spotted Rick Siegel who was broadcasting the event on his Online TV site. Kyra, a band at the infamous Webstock also competed.
