Growing UK-based concert booking organization Extreme Music Agency (EMA) has announced the launch of its USA business operation. The company has established a working collaboration with Rob Grohl at respected concert and festival booking company R.G. Concert Promotionz. The venture will see the two companies working hand-in-hand on a number of responsibilities.
The East Coast office, based in New Jersey, will be aiming to secure new talent to the EMA roster, as well as assisting in the management of upcoming EMA tours and concerts.
The inaugural show under the new agreement will be a concert with a three-band lineup featuring Al Atkins and THE HOLY RAGE from the UK.

The show will take place at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, California on January 4, 2008 and is already attracting great interest from public and industry alike.
