Overnight Sensation is BTR's home for underground indie rock, bedroom pop, punk, and other types of home-recorded experimental music. Overnight Sensation ISN'T really a DIY show because I do not know how the bands I play are doing it. They aren't sending me one-sheets, and I don't research them very thoroughly. Most of the time, all I get is their location. For all I know they are all sponsored by Mtn Dew, have publicists, lawyers, management, and their Soundcloud pages where they have 27 followers are part of a strategic cred-building campaign that just hasn't gone viral yet. Personally, I try to stay out of it. I basically just surf around the world wide web until I hear a band I like. Then I play the band on my show. Each week I try to pick new bands that will work well together. If there's time left to kill, I'll play older stuff. Sometimes I repeat stuff. It's OK to do that, I think. Have a great day!
