Riveter's Invasion of the GoGirls – SXSW 2008

GoGirlsMusic — I love this organization. GoGirls is the brain-child of Madalyn Sklar and this chick rocks. Fer reals.

She knows all the ins and outs of the indie music scene and works hard to provide information and services that are geared toward helping musicians reach their goals ... and not about lining her own pockets.

Invasion of the GoGirls is a showcase featuring 60 acts over three days and it all takes place during Austin's famed South by Southwest music festival. So Austin is already chaotic and full of musicians, but that doesn't stop Madalyn from running a tight ship.

Over three days, she runs four shows featuring over 60 singers, groups and bands. Just getting picked to be part of this showcase is huge for us, but then getting picked for the Saturday night event was even more huger (yes, "huger" is a word ... in my mind).

The shows ran on time and they rocked. We witnessed some acts that were truly unlike any acts we've seen before. You'll never be bored when the GoGirls are in town.
