NARIP: Big Apple Brunch April 18, 2010 @ Flux Studios, New York City

By: Jennifer Logue

On Sunday I got invited to attend NARIP’s Big Apple Brunch in New York City. I wasn’t too thrilled about waking up so early on a Sunday, but this event was definitely worth it. Aside from the food and the coffee, it was a terrific networking opportunity, especially for those who may be a little shy at traditional networking events.
With the NARIP brunches, everyone in attendance introduces themselves with a 30 second summary of who they are and what they’re looking for. It helps break the ice as well as bring the right people together for further conversation.

If you want to expand your music network and need a starting point, you should definitely attend. I met lawyers, producers, event planners, studio owners, managers, and fellow artists. There’s going to be another brunch in early summer and rumor has it, it’s going to be on the roof! (Flux Studios has an amazing rooftop space!)
For more on the brunch, check out the video below.

NARIP’s Art of the Music Deal- Thursday, April 22nd in NYC: 6:00PM-9:30PM

By: Jennifer Logue

As an artist in the music business these days, you need to speak more than just the language of music. In order to be in control of your career, you need to take ownership of your business, and a big part of that is being able to read through a contract. While it may be easier to just leave the legal jargon to your entertainment attorney, it’s certainly not beneficial. In order to stay in the driver’s seat, you need at the very least, a basic understanding of contract terms.

If you’re interested in jumpstarting your legal education, you should attend NARIP’s “Art of the Music Deal” on April 22nd in New York City. Taking place at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law from 6:00- 9:30PM, the event will include guest speakers, Alisa de Rosa, Esq and Joe Hegleman, who will engage in a “mock” artist management deal negotiation. They will explain key deal points and show you how to make the most out of your next contract.
You can register online at http://www.narip.com or by phone at (818) 769-7007.
Walk-ins are permitted although advanced registration is encouraged.

And for all of you starving artists out there, this event is catered and the food is included in the admission price. I will be covering it for Indieslant, so stay tuned for a follow- up article!
