Nadine Condon Presents: Nadine’s Music Manager Summit and DIY Film Fest

  • Music: Live One-On-One Interviews With Successful Rock Band Managers.
  • Film: Watch DIY Films and learn about DIY Film Making

I will present another of my trademark events on Thursday, August 12th at Studio Z on Eleventh Street at Folsom, in San Francisco. “Nadine’s Music Manager Summit and DIY Film Fest” will feature concurrent music and film activities in separate rooms at Studio Z gallery and performance space.

On the music side, I'll interview successful rock band managers about how they chose a band to manage, how they sold 10,000 + records (up to millions) , how they got record deals, how they got on tours and indie vs. major label strategies. Joining me will be Robert Hayes ( Smashmouth, t.A.T.u.), Jordan Kurland (Matt Nathansan, Creeper Lagoon) and the legendary Carter (the Low Millions, Paula Cole, the eels). This is a diverse group with lots of different industry experience and success. I'll be chatting with them individually in my faux living room on stage, so we can really get down to brass tacks and you can see what strategies actually work, and why. You know me-- No B.S.-- Real World Music Business, just like in my book.

On the film side, my friend Bruce Haring, noted author and DIY founder, will present DIY Film Festival films and moderate a panel on DIY Film Making. Indie and major film strategies will be debated, including financing and distribution. As you all know by now, DIY means Do It Yourself , an increasingly attractive option in the marketplace today, for many artists. Bruce always puts together a stellar panel of pros and this is an offshoot of his DIY Convention for music, film and books.

Tickets are $10 in advance. Doors at 7 pm, both programs start at 7:30 p.m. Full bar, 21 and over only. Contact us: Nadine @nadinecondon.com or Bruce@diyconvention.com. More to come... See you there

Small Favor...

If you have read my book Hot Hits, Cheap Demos Hits , kindly consider posting a small review on amazon.com. Just like posting reviews on your music website, reviews on amazon.com helps me sell my books. Every week I receive emails from musicians thanking me for my book. It is both exhilarating and gratifying. Thank you for this consideration.

Happy All-American Fourth of July

No matter what our personal politics, the Fourth of July is a time to celebrate our heritage, honor each other, and revel in the opportunities and blessings we have as Americans. God bless America. May we always live up to our highest personal standards.
