| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

As part of its free monthly series of "Musicians at Work" forums, the Chicago Music Commission tonight is sponsoring a discussion on "How to Get Press" in the Washington Room of the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington Blvd.

Things kick off with a networking session from 5:30 to 6 p.m. The panel itself runs from 6 to 7 and features industrial rock percussion legend, author and Columbia College instructor Martin Atkins; Aaron Cohen, associate editor of Downbeat magazine; Jenny Lizak, publicist for Metro; Paul Natkin, rock photographer and board member of the CMC, and this columnist and blogger.

Per the CMC's description: "Join our panel of experts for a discussion of how the relationship between musician and press works. We will explore the best ways of approaching press - what to send and how to send it. The discussion will also extend to how to set up a press kit, what should be in it and in what form it should be sent."
