Music Meeting returns in 2020
While I have been planning this for some time, it all came together very recently. Bringing the music meet-up and conversation back under the name “Music Meeting”. Thursday, January 23 at new community space, The Jungle, I will host part meet-up, part music community talk, part show, part let’s get to know each other in person, part what’s next.
This is the start of what I plan to be many events like this on how can we work better together. Meeting is free from 6-8, live show is $6 in advance, $10 day of | Event Link
Back in 2016, we met on a few occasions for something called “State of Live Music in Boston” conversations. Many found it helpful to talk about what was and what wasn’t happening for them. One thing remains clear: we need to talk to one another in person.
Let’s relaunch a series of meeting/meet-ups I am calling “Music Meeting”. On this first round, let’s talk about the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) concept and working on a sustainable foundation; old favorites like promoting in the digital age, booking (uh oh), and looking outside our own genres.
In the coming months, I will take it on the road (looking at you, Lowell) and welcome others to speak on topics that are important to the community at large.
