Today's music industry has as much to do with technology as it does licks and riffs: entire albums are recorded on iPads, outrageous light shows are run with just the touch of a button, and wearable tech means you can leave your wallet at home. MTV doesn't show many music videos anymore - the next great new band may well be discovered on YouTube or Google+.
Is Austin's tech explosion the secret weapon that will help our city keep its title of Live Music Capital of the World as it grows? And what does that title mean in 2015?
Two 2016 SXSW Interactive badges will be given to two lucky registered attendees!
A cash bar is available beginning at 5:15pm. Registered attendees will receive a free drink ticket for the reception that follows the presentation. Those wish to keep the conversation going after the reception are cordinally invited to adjourn across the street to The Townsend.
Metered street parking is available until 6:00pm for $1/hour. After 6:00pm, street parking is free (where available). Discounted parking is available in the surface lot located on Trinity between 7th Street and 8th Street for $5 for Austin Forum patrons.
Seating is limited to 300 friends. Please RSVP now to claim your seat. Walk-in guests will be admitted as space is available after registered guests have been seated.
