The Rift Magazine 36 Hour Songwriting Contest #7 is coming up, and you'll note that one of the contestants is HowWasTheShow's own David de Young. This will be an interesting feat as de Young is not only covering the show, but also broadcasting it live. It should also be a lot of fun. (Okay, I gotta stop with the talking about myself 3rd Person!). Read my review of last year's 36 Hour Songwriting Contest here.
The songwriters will get a topic, they will have 36 hours to write a song, they get to perform it in front of a live audience who will ultimately decide who gets the award for the best song!
Claire Taubenhaus, David Brusie, Eliza Blue, Eric Kalenze, Holly Hansen, Neil Zumwalde, Chris Hall, Nicholas Roesler, Shug-E, David DeYoung, Sam Keenan, Pete Wannemacher, Ben Cook-Feltz, Andrew Lynch, Adam Marshall, Jen Markey, Dave Mehling and Nikki Schultz.
