Hangout With Dae This Saturday On Google Hangouts

Hangout With Dae Boogan

Haven’t been able to make any of the music industry conferences where I speak (SXSW, International Music Festival Conference, Independent Music Conference, SAE Music Tech Expo, Indie Entertainment Expo, Digital Entertainment World, etc.)? Well, now is your chance to do so from home.
For the first time ever, I’ll participate in a Google Hangout to discuss independent music creators rights, self-publishing, self-releasing, metadata, marketing, and more.
Saturday, April 9th | 10am PST/1pm EST

I post all the time about the music industry and I am highly active in and around the music industy. To some, I am among the gatekeepers (considering I own a music video network that earns upwards of 3 million monthly impressions, one could call me a gatekeeper).
