The Roadmap to the Gimme the Gig II Finals

The Gimme the Gig II Focus Tour has come to a close, and we’d like to thank all of the amazing independent bands who entered, best of luck to you all in your musical careers.

From Seattle’s Rock n Roll Marathon to the Snow Jam in San Diego, Gimme the Gig bands rocked the Focus tour, while fans got to test out the 2012 Focus and experience the car actually parking itself!
