What the fuck?
People need to stop treating rock music like its more important than it is.
International rock festival booker and artist manager Seven Webster (who manages Skindred) has teamed up with A&R Worldwide and MUSEXPO founder and president Sat Bisla to launch the first-ever Global Rock Summit (GRS) in Hollywood, California, next April.
A press release claims “the GRS is an international rock music conference aimed at bringing together all aspects of the multi-billion dollar global rock music industry in one annual, focused gathering with a view of helping to further stimulate a very buoyant but often much overlooked sector of the music industry.
“With many global companies working in the rock sector regularly visiting Los Angeles to conduct commerce, the Global Rock Summit (GRS) will encourage these companies to enhance their business and creative activities around the time of the GRS, and in doing so, help draw more business opportunities to all in attendance,” says the presser.
This sounds unneeded.
“The GRS will unite artists and companies from all sectors of the global rock music community including labels, publishers, digital aggregators, booking agents, festival promoters, media, merch companies, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, brands, PR companies, song pluggers, radio stations, the educational sector and all other aspects of the rock music community.”
It actually sounds boring.
The conference will run April 4 and April 5, 2014, and will take place in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where the first Oscars ceremony was held in 1928.
A bunch of label dudes and managers will be speaking at the event.
Fly me out and I’ll speak to, bitches. And I’ll say, “We all need to get lives.”
