Local band to be showcased in New York

Local neo-classic rockers Hot Lava Monster will be featured in the Billboard Underground section of in July.

The band will film the segment in June in New York. Hot Lava has also been invited to perform a showcase for Billboard magazine in New York in the fall. The showcase, we were told, is exclusive for Hot Lava Monster, and there will be record label representatives at the show.

Billboard only hosts four showcases a year for emerging performers, so it’s not lost how big a deal this is. If you don’t know who Hot Lava Monster is, the band will perform Saturday night at Headliners, 700 Gervais St.
