As part of #DCWEEK, the Metro Music Source is hosting a special music industry networking event on Tuesday, June 15th 2010.
The Metro Music Source was founded nearly a year ago by co-hosts Dave Mallen (owner/producer of Innovation Station Music) and Jem Bahaijoub (owner of imaginePR) as a focal point for the thriving and diverse DC area music scene, offering music creators and industry professionals the opportunity to socialize, share knowledge, and collaborate, while also helping to raise the profile of DC music on a national level.
In past months, MMS events have brought together local musicians, major and indie label executives, artist managers and marketing reps, record store managers, publicists, filmmakers, music publishers, producer/engineers, and more.
This month's Metro Music Source event is part of DC's Digital Capital Week (DCWEEK). #DCWEEK is a 10 day festival in Washington DC focused on technology, innovation and all things digital in our nation’s capital.
The cost for this special Metro Music Source #DCWeek event is $20, which includes 2 drinks per person, and several appetizers to share (tax and gratuity also included). The venue Bar Louie is convenient to the Gallery Place-Chinatown metro.
The event will feature several special guests from across the industry, including Brad McCormick from WEA (Warner Elektra Atlantic) and ADA Distribution and Derrick Ewan, aka DJ Furious Styles. Derrick is a former XM Radio DJ and mix show host known for putting the spotlight on unsigned artists in the Hip Hop and R&B world. More special guests will be announced shortly!
We'll also be holding a FREE raffle whereby one winner will be picked to receive a box of 30 new CDs from artists including The Gaslight Anthem, Blitzen Trapper, Against Me!, All Time Low, The Black Keys, and the new Twilight Eclipse Soundtrack.
This is a great opportunity to connect with others in the DC area music community and have fun doing it!
Tickets will go quickly, so register today!
