UPDATED for May! Weekly Websdays: Meet Up with Music Tech Leaders Every Wednesday

Updated: 5 days ago

Response to our online meetups has been phenomenal. To keep the conversations and connections growing, Music Tectonics is continuing Weekly Websdays, an online music tech meetup with curated programming and curated audiences.


Every Wednesday in May, rock paper scissors (the PR firm behind Music Tectonics) will host a zoom get-together. We'll bring in a thought leader or three, present a topic, and give everyone a chance to chat their intro, ask questions, and do shout outs.


If you are new to the meetups, please fill out this form to RSVP. To keep our meetup vibe informal and interactive (but safe from zoom-bombers), we moved to a sign-up system that includes verifying attendees via Linkedin. Once you're verified, you're in for all future meetups.


Upcoming Weekly Websday Schedule

Every Wednesday at 9 am Pacific / 12 pm Eastern / 5 pm UK

May 27: A Fireside Chat with Darryl Ballantyne, CEO of LyricFind

LyricFind exists to fill the void of the most popular music content on the Internet: lyrics. Get Darryl's insights on successfully negotiating innovation within the music business, what's changing in lyrics and publishing, and what he's learned developing a B2C angle for his B2B company.


We'll update this post as we build our slate of timely topics and guests. Let us know who you want to meet and what you want to learn about. Tweet your suggested topics with #websdays and #musictectonics so we can lock in more great speakers!
