The San Diego Music Thing (ex-North Park Music Thing) is happening again this year- on September 9th and 10th. I was fortunate enough to participate on a panel at last year's event, but it looks like the demand for ol' Scotto was pretty low this year, and I'm sad to say that I didn't make the cut. But don't worry- there are TONS of excellent speakers like:
IAN ROGERS: HE RUNS TOP SPIN AND IS CONSIDERED A GENIUS.
MICHAEL ROBERTSON: STARTED MP3.COM
JUSTIN PEARSON: HE WROTE A BOOK!!!!
JOSH FEINGOLD (EX-SESAC, NOW SONG PUBLISHING)
KEVIN LYMAN: CREATED THE G** D*** WARPED TOUR.
And cool bands like:
COLD SHOWERS (!)
THE NERVOUS WRECKORDS
So bummed not to be directly involved- it looks like a lot of fun! Oh well, maybe next year I can do what it takes. You can buy your tickets HERE, and frankly it's a great deal if you want to learn more about music business. Also: IT WILL SELL OUT- so don't be caught a'nappin.
