HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Southern Miss Students hosted a live-music performance at Southern Prohibition this afternoon called SCR Fest.
The South City Records event was put together by students in the Recording Industry program. The class gives students hands-on experience with the music industry. Students get to pick a band, promote it and create music videos for local talent.
"If were not doing this, we'd go out in the real world and be like 'what we are doing here,'" said student Ashley Olesen. "With this, we are getting the training we need."
At the end of the semester, one band will get chosen to sign with South City Records.
