Radical Rat LLC, based in Chicago, Illinois, was established to connect filmmakers with musicmakers through several avenues, including a live music showcase, CD compilations, podcasts, online music libraries and direct, personal networking.

Our goal is to assist recording artists, composers and songwriters in establishing connections with filmmakers and other media industry personnel to secure placements for their music in films, television programs, advertising, online media, video games, and other media outlets.

Now in its fourth year, our Radical Rat Film-Music Showcase has presented dozens of exceptional recording artists to members of the film industry during Film Festival Week in Park City, Utah, including national and international touring performers, multi-platinum recording artists as well as exceptional unknown, emerging artists.

The Radical Rat Film-Music Showcase is presented at The Spur Bar & Grill, an intimate venue located directly on Main Street in the heart of downtown Park City. Although Radical Rat is not officially affiliated with a specific film festival, Park City is deluged with members of the film industry during Film Festival Week who are in town to participate in the Sundance Film Festival, Slamdance, the Park City Film Music Festival and several smaller film festivals and competitions.

Centrally located amid film festival venues and activities, The Spur Bar & Grill is just steps away from the Egyptian Theater, a primary screening venue for the Sundance Film Festival. This central location and The Spur's comfortable lounge atmosphere allow festival attendees to enjoy and experience the great wealth of musical talent programmed by Radical Rat.

Hard Rock Cafe hosts Radical Rat Launch Party & Performances:

In addition to our showcase opportunities in Park City, Utah, we will once again host our Radical Rat "Sneak-Peek" Launch Party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Salt Lake City, Utah. Starting at 8:00pm on Wednesday, January 17, 2007, the "Sneak-Peek" will present several Radical Rat artists in the Hard Rock's "Brickhouse" performance lounge. All artists accepted for the Radical Rat Film-Music Showcase will automatically be considered for performances at our "Sneak-Peek" Launch Party at the Hard Rock, subject to availability and scheduling considerations.

Radical Rat's extensive Film Industry Outreach program is focused on maximizing attendance by members of the film industry at our showcases, and cultivating and expanding relationships with our network of music supervisors, film producers, directors and editors. Our efforts don't stop after Film Festival Week is over --- That's when our work really begins, following up with the many film industry contacts we've established during the course of our showcase, working hard to successfully place music by Radical Rat artists in films and other media outlets.
