Last week I was asked by The Grammy Foundation to speak at a Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, May 18th @ 7:30pm along with Phil Gallo (Highly touted music journalist and co-author of Record Store Days), Gary Calamar (KCRW DJ and co-author of Record Store Days), Peter Jesperson (VP, A&R New West Records), and recording artist Grant Lee Philips. The topic of our conversation will be about the future of record stores and the evolution of music consumption. Some questions will be asked about how today's teenagers will remember their favorite bands of 2010 and if music will resonate as much in the digital future as it did in the record store past.
It would be rad to get as many of our friends down to the conversation. The event is free, but you will need to make a reservation. You can do so by calling 213.765.6830 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the deets:
