What happened to the good ol’ days, when aspiring artists hit the streets to bombard anybody and everybody with their talents? Now it seems hopefuls are content with posting cheesy videos on YouTube or creating glitter-laden MySpace pages and praying for their “big break.” We understand these methods might work, but it couldn’t hurt to try meeting people face-to-face. Which is why we’re sending you to Hollywood -- no, not in California, the one in Broward County -- to perform in a superofficial Industry Artist Showcase. In addition to your mama, A&R reps from major record labels such as Sony, Universal, EMI, and BMG will be in the audience.

“Our mission is to get indie artists signed,” says talent coordinator and the night’s host, Chris Imperial. “We’re not just looking for musicians; we’re looking for poets, comedians, whoever. We’re looking for people that are gonna be the next big whatever.” So if you claim to be a hustla, a go-getta, and “on your grind,” call Chris at 754-214-6024 or e-mail him at grassroots3000@yahoo.com to get on the list to perform. Doors open at 8:00, and all ages are welcome, at the Legends Café, 2029 Harrison St., Hollywood. Admission is $10.
Wednesdays, 8 p.m., 2007
