Here is the schedule of deadlines and publication dates for the Unofficial Guide to World Music:

01/02/11 deadline to be included in the FINAL edition of Unofficial Guide
01/05/11 post on DubMC.com the FINAL edition of Unofficial Guide
The first edition allows early-bird planners to start sorting out their showcase schedule and also seems to get people to come out of the woodwork with their additional showcase listings.
As we have done in the past, DubMC.com and rock paper scissors, inc. will publish an Unofficial Guide to World Music Showcases happening in NYC from January 6-12, 2011. There is a huge quantity of world music showcases in NYC at this time, thanks to the amazing Arts Presenters conference happening at that time. If you are hosting or promoting a world music showcase--official or otherwise--in NYC during that time, please download the submission form here (an Excel spreadsheet) and complete and email it by December 19, 2010 to scott ~at~ rockpaperscissors ~dot~ biz
