In Case You Missed It: Sea Wolf warms up for Thursday's Roxy show with KCRW set

It's been an incredibly busy year for Sea Wolf.  After the release of their sophomore LP White Water, White Bloom (Dangerbird Records), Alex Brown Church and Co. completed a national headlining tour followed by an accompanying spot in, OMG, the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack. We can easily excuse the latter, so come out and celebrate Sea Wolf's very good year at the Roxy this Thursday night.

And if you happened to miss Sea Wolf's Morning Becomes Eclectic set this morning, thank the new media gods for the advent of archive.  Enjoy:


Calling all musicians: New Music Seminar comes back to LA in Feb. '10

A day full of seminars and lectures might not sound like the most interesting of days, so the people at New Music Seminar are trying to change that. The one-day conference held on February 2, 2010 is made up of panel discussions and Q&As regarding the (pathetically dismal) state of the music industry and new era solutions to bring honest (and obviously profitable) music back to the masses. For artists struggling and wondering how to get to the next step, the 2-for-1 registration deal might just be for you (use code NMSLA2 at checkout).  Local artists might also be interested in participating in New Music Seminar's Artist on the Verge contest, which will award $25,000 in prizes to a very talented few.  Deadline for entry is December 21.

Panelists scheduled to appear include KCRW's Jason Bentley, Mike Doernberg of Reverbnation, Elliott Lefko of Goldenvoice/AIG and a bunch of other heavy hitters with sage advice and juicy anecdotes about the changing music business environment.
