With the start of the Jammin 107.5's Northwest Breakout Show, Northwest hip-hop has a new outlet to expose the masses to quality Urban music from the Northwest region. With the Northwest Breakout Show up and running, we will start a once a month live performance showcase that will feature artist's who's music is featured on the program.

The first showcase will take place on Friday December 26th at Doug Fir, and will continue every month there after. The Northwest Breakout Show will become a staple in the Northwest Music scene, and will further work to expose the masses to quality Northwest music.

With the success and overwhelming response of The Northwest Breakout Show, Jammin 107.5 is moving the show from it's current one hour time slot on Friday's to a new two hour time slot on Saturday evenings from 6-8PM starting on Dec. 13th.

We look forward to all of your continued support, and hope to see you at the showcase.
