Music fans aren’t just consumers anymore… they are tastemakers, music distributors and even collaborators with artists. How does this impact artists’ careers? Will anyone get paid for making music anymore? How does this up the ante for concerts and festivals? Is touring and playing out 200 times a year the future of music?
Visit WHYY’s Philadelphia Studios on Friday, May 20th as Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot, hosts of the nationally distributed rock ‘n’ roll talk show Sound Opinions, discuss the impact of the unprecedented changes in the new music world.
Prior to the discussion with Jim and Greg, guests to this event will enjoy a cocktail reception sponsored by Maker’s Mark. Following the event at WHYY, guests are invited to a post-discussion after-party (also sponsored by Maker’s Mark) at Philadelphia Bar and Restaurant.
