If you're a high school or college student considering a career in the music industry (the greatest industry of them all!), make sure you check out City of Music Career Day on Tuesday, October 1 at the Seattle Center.
You really don't have an excuse NOT to go—it's totally free, AND you might be eligible for an excused absence from Seattle Public Schools.
KEXP's John Richards is doing the keynote address and scores of cool music folks will be there, like #1 hiphop writer/music-taste champion Larry Mizell Jr. (along with Hollis Wong-Wear and Geo), Josh Rosenfeld from Barsuk, Jeff Kleinsmith from Sub Pop, Devon Manier from Sportn' Life, Ali Hedrick from Billions, and more!
PLUS, there will be performances by Dave B, Katie Kate, Troy and Mackenzie from the Young Evils, and Naomi Wachira. Do you realize how lucky you are to be growing up with this stuff at your disposal? Go or you're grounded.
