“My roommate” was watching Teen Mom the other day and there was one song that played on loop throughout the episode and I thought, “Damn, if I was this band I’d be kinda pissed at my manager.” But I also had never heard of the band before so it was cool that they were getting play in a show that exposes them to a (sadly) huge number of viewers. Find out how to get your songs featured in teen dramas and into the ear holes of the youth of America at a Music Industry Secrets event at Knitting Factory on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
ReverbNation and Knitting Factory have designed a full night of networking, panel discussion and music to help musicians and industry professionals learn about resources and opportunities for licensing songs to TV, radio, film, internet, video games, etc.
The night kicks off at 6:30pm with networking and live entertainment, followed by a panel discussion about how to get music supervisors to license your songs with industry professionals Paul-Anthony Surdi (Crowd Control Music), David Weiss (SonicScoop), Erik Masone (Deep Freeze Music), and Jessica Weiner, Esq. (Music Publishing Attorney). After the panel there will be an artist/band showcase and more schmoozing.
Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door (but capacity is limited and expected to sell out).
Music Industry Secrets – Tuesday Dec. 4 6:30-10:30pm at The Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Ave.
