Are you headed to Austin for SXSW? If so, please make plans to come see the nerds from Topspin. Below is our schedule of public events, and we’d love to chat, buy you a beer and catch up on all things music, tech, film and marketing. Come laugh at me while I try to get a word in edge-wise during a public interview with Kevin Smith on the Conference main stage (chances of Kevin using the whole hour to hilariously answer my first question? 90 percent). Or RSVP for the A2IM Breakfast (become a member!) and schedule yourself a marketing advice one-on-one session with Parker.
Wanna hear real, practical advice about how to put more money in the pockets of artists? See Nicole and Ian in a handful of great panels on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And most importantly, please swing by the Belmont on Tuesday afternoon for a totally public, open meet up with Topspin, Mobile Roadie, SoundCloud, Music One Live, MIDEM, Music Matters, Next Big Sound and Bopler. The drinks are on us, and we’d love to meet you face-to-face and hear about your projects, your startup and your favorite music and film.
See you in Austin!
