(, a music discovery destination providing

professional opportunities for up-and-coming talent, today announced the

addition of four new partners to its online gig and talent finder resource,

Marketplace, including music festivals Noise Pop and RedGorilla and artists

its partnership with Marketplace to select additional artists to perform at

Noise Pop 2009. RedGorilla Music Fest will also join the list of national
