We all know it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock’n'roll, and if you’re true to your art, forget about it. Many of us have faced the problem of whether and how to promote unpopular music. But is there more to promo than getting bums onto seats? Can the marketing be part of the message? Our panelists are all experienced in the subtle art of leading people to music’s fringes; from running record shops specialising in musical oddities, to curating sound art festivals, and straddling the barbed-wire fence between comedy and indie pop. They offer wisdom about the do’s and don’t's of selling the unsellable.
Panel: Justin Heazlewood, Philip Samartzis and Pat O'Brien.
More Talk Less Action is a series of panel discussion-based events. Each night revolves around a theme and features two short performances. People interested in music are invited to take part.
