Grooveshark is full of pretty big music geeks, so it’s only natural that whenever music performances take place in our hometown (Gainesville, Florida!), we’ve got to be there. We’re fortunate that Gainesville often finds itself on a lot of great artists’ tour routes. We love to invite artists to our office to kick back a bit, share their insight and experiences from the tour, feast upon cuisine prepared by our in-house chef, and, if we’re lucky, record some awesomeness here in our own office.
The past few weeks we’ve had the pleasure of having some of those artists visit our office. Here’s a recap of some of the artists who have come by recently.Above: Emancipator came in and we got a great interview with him and his violinist.Above: Emancipator tour dog!

If you’re an artist coming through Gainesville on tour, get in touch with us, stop by, pickup a shirt, and grab some dinner at the office. We’d love to meet you!
