Music needed!

January 9th, 2010

I’m working on a project and I need help finding a song. Here’s the details:

I’m producing an upper level grad film at USC. It’s going to count as my buddy’s thesis (previous USC thesis films have gone on to win Oscars for best short… so that’s the level of work we’re striving for).

I’m trying to find a song we can obtain the rights to– and we have no money to do this. So we’re looking for an up-and-coming band or artist who would be interested in letting us use their song (hey, it’s exposure for them, too).

The scene in question is at a prep school homecoming dance. It’s going to be something the DJ is playing and the kids are going wild to. To give you a frame of reference the song we really love for this scene is “Little Secrets” by Passion Pit– http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxL9Hod_qCY. But it’s something like $1,000 to license this music, which is $$$ we don’t have. (We also like Phoenix).

So, any suggestions? What should I be listening to and what bands/artists should I be talking to?
