Although still a short time away from their official opening, the new eatery known as Olive, an Urban Dive seems to have big plans about supporting local music as well as local foodies. Upon opening its doors, Olive will offer an iPad jukebox which will feature Dayton music exclusively. They are putting out the call out to all local musicians, past and present, to submit their music on CD, which will later be used in monthly giveaways, and sign a release form upon submission. For anyone interested in getting juked, you can submit your goods and sign all required forms at Olive, Gem City Records, or contact Shelley Hulce of CatEyeMedia at CatEyeMedia@gmail.com.
