It survived, it survived!

SquidHat Records, the fresh-faced local punk rock label owned by former Portlandians, is celebrating its first birthday at the Double Down Saloon by hosting a showcase weekend taking place Jan. 25-26 of next year. 

And part of that celebration is snatching up a new band to add to the SquidHat family. It's going to be like The Voice. Or American Idol. Except this is going to be for a full band (along with, like, a million other differences). According to label head Allan Carter, SquidHat is inviting local artists to post their music to the SquidHat Facebook page before Dec. 31 2012 to grab one of the six slots of the showcase. The best — chosen not by crowd popularity, but by the label folks actually deciding which will be a viable addition to the label — will go on to snag a SquidHat Records development deal, and join the ranks of The Dirty Panties, The Gashers and Jenn O Cide.

The page is now open to submissions, and Carter will announce his decisions by Jan. 2.
