According to our Beat Blvd. columnist Ned Raggett, this is the first time Experience Music Project's Pop Conference is being held in LA. “Very handy,” he notes in his blog. If you're in the area tomorrow, you might want to check out KCRW's music director Jason Bentley moderating a panel in UCLA.
The panel is called “How Musicians Make Do and Keep Their Souls Alive in a Changing Pop World” and features Moby, Raphael Saadiq, and David Sitek from TV On the Radio/Maximum Balloon.
The group will talk about how musicians from different genres get by in
the world of new music technology and business models. If you miss it,
it will be on KCRW.com
It's free and open to the public, but space is limited, so guests should arrive early to secure a seat.
WHO: Moby, Raphael Saadiq and David Sitek
WHAT: 2011 EMP Pop Conference Keynote Discussion
WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 26, 8-9:30 p.m.
