|On Wednesday, July 30th, yours truly, Nadine Condon, along with my colleague Motogirl Productions, will present a fantastic evening of music and film business info, along with live music at the Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco. Doors open @ 7 pm for a no host pre-event cocktail party, film panel @ 8pm, music panel @9 pm , music by Kingstreet Crossing @ 10 and Breech @ 11 pm. Admission is $6 before 8 pm, $8 after. This club is 21+ only.
Kicking off the night at 8 p.m. is "Film Marketing, Publicity and Promotion...and How To Tell The Difference." The panel discussion will be moderated by DIY Convention chairman Bruce Haring and will feature John Howard Swain, producer, Full Circle Productions; Brian Ging, director, "American Yearbook"; Glorinda Marie, actress and SF IndieClub leader; Ryan Harlin, producer, "Do You Remember? Fifteen Years Of The Bouncing Souls"; and Joel S. Bachar, co founder of the MicroCinema Network.
The discussion will focus on practical advice for low-budget filmmakers on rising above the noise and clutter of the hundreds of independent films released each year.
Following the digital film panel, I will personally moderate "How To Sell 10,000 CDs In A Year...And Still Make Money If You Don't." The panel will feature Derek Sivers of CDBaby.com; Tim Quirk of Too Much Joy and Listen.com; Jeff Alulis, lead singer of the Dead Kennedys; Robert Rankin Walker, president of Heyday Records; and artist PC Munoz of PC Munoz and the Amen Corner.
The discussion will offer musicians a guideline toward attaining a practical level of sales that will sustain a decent living and position them for the next level.
Filmmakers, musicians, publishers, record labels and those interested in music supervision are strongly urged to attend both panels.
Live music performances will follow the panels. Featured will be one of my current faves, Kingstreet Crossing, and 2003 DIY Music Festival Album of the Year winners Breech.
I remain committed to sharing my music business knowledge and producing quality events for our creative communities.
