Emerging Artist To Join Ranks Of Silversun Pickups, Tegan & Sara In Next Ragged

The innovative minds behind Filter Magazine and American Rag Cie clothing are proud to announce an all new competition to support emerging artists and give one lucky up-and-coming act a feature story in the next issue of Ragged. From hundreds of entries Filter selected five finalists across diverse genres including Geographer (San Francisco, CA), ArtOfficial (Miami, FL), Robotanists (Los Angeles, CA), Cloaked Characters (Bend, OR) and Kid, You'll Move Mountains (rural IL) who are being featured for 30 days on the Ragged website where music fans have the chance to hear their music and vote for the artist they would most like to see featured in the next issue of Ragged in March, coinciding with the SXSW Festival 2009.

Listen to each artist and vote exclusively at www.Raggedmag.com.
