ScoreMore now routes tours through nine markets in the Southwest, including Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, San Marcos, and more, producing more than 150 club shows per year, not including its festival properties: JMBLYA in both Dallas and Austin, and its partnership with Neon Desert Music Festival in El Paso. ScoreMore also helped to bring about one of the most successful and sought-after events in SXSW history, The ILLMORE, which concluded in 2016.
