SLUG Mag’s Localized is the monthly, local music showcase founded in 2001 as a way for local musicians to receive recognition for their work. The monthly showcase provides bands playing with free posters to promote the show, a write-up in SLUG Magazine for the two headliners, payouts and digital promotion.
