Hey! I’ll be one of the panelists at the MMF Metal forum on February 8 in St Kilda. This event, by Music Managers Forum Australia, is part of the St Kilda Festival and it’s a great opportunity for anyone interested in metal, but especially those who play it, to pick the brains of some very knowledgable experts. And me [boomTISH]. Now, it’s free but you need to book. Tickets are available here. Come along, participate, and let’s have a beer afterwards.
There are plenty of other forums and masterclasses run by MMF as part of the Festival. Check out this schedule for more.
Here are the details of the metal forum.
