'Bside Roadshow' kicks off June 4.

Online networking giant MySpace has teamed with indie film distributor Bside Entertainment and festival consultant Right Angle Studios for the “Bside Roadshow,” a touring film and music festival.

The “Bside Roadshow” intends to bring independent film and music to select cities across the country and will kick off June 4 with a free show in Austin, Texas before moving to other college towns such as Ann Arbor, Mich., Madison, Wis. and Boston.

The tour will showcase regional bands featured on MySpace—across many genres including alternative, hip-hop, rock and reggae—and will be promoted on MySpace by linking to film trailers and downloads from featured music artists.
