The Fast Romantics Make Finalist for SPIN Earth / Varvatos Contest!‏

After scouring the planet for that next great rock ‘n roll band and receiving hundreds of entries from around the globe, SPIN Earth and fashion designer partner John Varvatos have announced the four finalists - and Calgary’s The Fast Romantics have made the cut!

The band is scheduled to perform in the middle of New York Fashion Week at Varvatos’ 315 Bowery boutique (former home to CBGB’s) on September 15th along with other finalists Los Howlers (Santiago, Chili), Reckless Sons (NYC), and Scrambled Eggs (Beirut).
Judging The Fast Romantics are a panel of rock star judges including Varvatos, Perry Farrell, and Antonio “LA” Reid who will select the winner. And what are they vying for? The winning band will receive a development deal with Island Records, become the face of the first John Varvatos Star USA ad campaign, and get continued promotion online with SPIN Earth.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed for these cool cats and you should too.
