On June 14 (tomorrow night, coincidentally my mom’s birthday if she’s reading this), I’m proud to be a part of Me Against the Music: Branding Marketing and Surviving the Music Industry, a panel at Brightest Young Things‘ not-quite-a-popup-shop. Appropriately, the discussion of music – specifically the tension between craft and business – in the digital age is being held at an online magazine’s vitaminwater-branded art space.
The panel will be hosted by Marcus Dowling (late of True Genius Requires Insanity, and too many other publications of note). Also featured are:
Shannon Emamali, Executive Director, GRAMMY, Washington, DC Chapter
Casey Rae-Hunter, Communications Director, Future of Music Coalition
Jonathan Fischer, Arts Editor, Washington City Paper
Steve Lambert, Hood Booking (concert booker for DC9, Rock and Roll Hotel, Red Palace)
Substantial, Noted MC, QN5 Music
Music listeners are always broaching this topic: the invisible hands that guide the market of what we discover, listen to, and share with each other. It will be great to get different perspectives on this ubiquitous issue. Hope to see you there!
