At ListenUp Myrtle Beach, it's always been our goal to do something different.
From day 1 we've strived to look beyond the average music fan's perception of what Myrtle Beach Music is and have dug a little deeper to reveal the underlying talent and potential that make our area so special.
We've spread the word about local music in as many ways as we know how and preached to anyone who will listen about all the great bands and venues in town.
We've written extensively about it in print and online. We've talked about it on the radio and on TV. We've Tweeted, Shouted, Posted, Linked, Updated and Commented about it until folks we're sick of seeing us pop up in their social media accounts.
We' even played promoter, organizing shows and live music events and faked like we're a label, releasing a compilation of some of our favorite tunes.
And while we knew we'd never turn this cover band town into the next Nashville or Atlanta overnight, we'd like to think we've at least made enough noise to turn a few heads, convince a few the doubters that "Myrtle Beach Music Is Not Dead" and turn a few folks on to some great music they might not have heard otherwise.
It's with that idea in mind that we've decided to add a new trick to our reportoire of ways to help connect you with music we love, with a new show called Typically Atypical.
Thanks to production from Georgetown-based creative services group Allied Arts creative services we'll be bringing you our first-ever audio podcast, a no-frills weekly show that's all about the music.
Typically Atypical will give listeners an unconventional dose of the best local and regional artists spanning every genre of music. Each week's episode will 30 to 40 minutes of music-only listening curated by ListenUp staff, the Allied Arts crew and you, the listener.
