Pit Stop Music Marathon (SXSW in Bloomington?!)


Spirit of ’68 Promotions is proud to announce the inaugural PIT STOP MUSIC MARATHON – a seven-day musical sprint March 6-13 featuring more than 20 local, regional, and national artists all traveling from point A, to point South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

Spirit of ’68 asked themselves, “If we can’t take off work, school and responsibility to take in SXSW, why don’t we try and bring a taste of the excitement to our stages?”

And so they did.

The PIT STOP MUSIC MARATHON is unlike any other music festival or event happening in the Midwest today. PIT STOP MUSIC MARATHON offers seven consecutive nights of music spread across two venues showcasing bands on the blogs, lips and iPods of critics, students and music connoisseurs.
