The three-day event will attract an incredible array of musicians, managers, policymakers, technologists, media gurus, legal geniuses, innovators, entrepreneurs and everyone in between. We’ll also throw in a few cocktail parties, a rock show and movie screening. This one marks our 10th anniversary of fighting for musicians in the halls of power and beyond.
Here’s a tiny smattering of the speakers we’ve lined up:
I kicked and screamed, but it looks like I’m playing the rock show. I hope I have time to learn the songs.
After that, I head to Syracuse for this thing, then it’s off to NYC to run a panel at CMJ on net neutrality with Amaechi Uzoigwe from Definitive Jux, Charles Bissell from The Wrens, Peter Gordon from Thirsty Ear Recordings, James Losey from New America Foundation‘s Open Technology Initiative and Paul Molloy from American Federation of Musicians Local 802. From there, I’m off to my old stomping grounds to be on a panel following the screening of Barbershop Punk as part of the Vermont International Film Festival.
Then we’re going to Sonoma CA for a few days (I’ll also pop by SF for a minute to see this one).
Hopefully things slow down enough after that for me to work on a coupe of projects, including continuing the release window for my new record, launching the Lux Eterna label and another thing that I can’t tell you about right now.
