ReadWriteWeb is reporting that Revision3, the IPTV network founded last year in part by Digg’s Jay Adelson and Kevin Rose, has announced a new show to their already large line up. XLR8R TV (pronounced “accelerator” TV) is an underground music show that they hope will attract an untapped niche crowd as well as the attention of advertisers.
According to the show’s homepage:
XLR8R TV is a monthly show featuring interviews with and performances by the groundbreaking musicians and artists you’ll find in the pages of XLR8R magazine.
XLR8R magazine and website publications are dedicated to music, style, culture and technology. Founded in 1993, their scope was on electronic music and has since broadened to encompass the hip-hop, indie rock, reggae and dancehall music genres.
XLR8R TV will cover the same content covered on their website and magazine, but will use the show to shed light on emerging artists. A new episode of XLR8R TV will be released on the 1st of every month, with an extended edition in the middle of each month to include three music videos from artists they cover. The show is hosted on location, and will be comprised of interviews of music artists and their fans, and of course will include music by those artists.
You can watch their first episode here.
