First Industry Noise Conference launches February 27, 2009 in San Francisco - focus on digital music industries and the artists

Industry Noise, a one-day conference looking at independent music, technology, and the transforming industry, is premiering Friday, February 27, 2009 at this year's Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco. Industry Noise will feature keynote conversations with influential artists and technologists, and panel discussions that encourage conversation between the digital industries and the artists that are forging new terrain through its opportunities.

Panels will include "What Happens In Vegas...Gets spun into eternity on the web" about the realities of having a constantly recorded and documented career; "Next Big Thing" which asks if big labels are dinosaurs, why are they still so necessary to build a band to arena level and if it is possible to do so without their involvement, and for "This is you... Online" musicians examine their online identities from their own MySpace page to that song posted by a kid in Iowa of a show that didn't go so well. In addition, there will be sit down conversations with those that are transforming the industry.

Confirmed panelists include Kevin Arnold, CEO, IODA; Joyce Williams, artist manager, MIN entertainment; Owen Seitel, Idell & Seitel; Greg Werckman, Ipecac Recordings and others to be announced.

Noise Pop is currently in its 17th year. This city-wide festival has hosted the most influential artists of our time including The White Stripes, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, Jimmy Eat World, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Bright Eyes, Wolfmother, Spoon, The Magnetic Fields, and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco to name a few. Confirmed headliners for 2009 include Antony and the Johnsons, AC Newman and No Age with more to be announced soon. Industry Noise is a joint venture between Noise Pop and the Bandwidth Music | Technology Conference, an annual gathering of music and technology professionals that brings those industries together for "Music. Technology. Cocktails."
