Slamdance, the "other" independent film festival running alongside the annual Sundance Film Festival, continues its steady ascension out of the shadows with a new focus on music. Organizers recently launched a year-round showcase of up and coming artists, with a mini-tour kicking off Dec. 31 in Brooklyn. The addition coincides with the festival's 15th anniversary. Featured performers on the Slamdance Underground Music vs. Film Tour include headliners The Woes and Psuedo Slang. You can catch the lineup in Park City, Jan. 15-17 at various locations.
