If you are any way involved with local music, you might want to sign up for an upcoming conference.

MixMaster 2015 is an event that helps local musicians connect with industry professionals such as journalists, record labels, promoters, and more. The conference helps musicians learn about anything from copyright issues to production.

Speaking of which, this year’s conference is adding production workshops at the Lawrence Public Library’s Sound + Vision studio on Friday, May 1st from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Producers and engineers will share their knowledge with attendees. Later that night at 7:00 p.m., Five Bar & Tables will host a Songwriter Night.

The actual music conference takes play the next day on Saturday, May 2nd, at the Bottleneck from noon – 5:00 p.m. The venue will also host a live showcase later that night.

I Heart Local Music attended MixMaster 2015 last year and was thoroughly impressed with the plethora of necessary knowledge available to local musicians. We encourage anyone to attend the conference and showcase, spearheaded by Silly Goose Records.

You can RSVP to the event on Facebook here, or go to MixMaster’s website here
