The Verge: College Music Conference

The Verge

Hey all, I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you all know about a music conference called THE VERGE that's going to be happening in Boston April 19th-21st.

We're going to be hosting The Verge in the Park Plaza hotel as well as in several nightclubs on Lansdowne street. We're getting 100 local, independent, and national acts to play, and now we're looking for attendees for the conference.

In addition to the music showcases, there will also be workshops covering all different aspects of the music industry, as well as lectures from people who have found success working in music.

If you're on the event planning committee for your school, you should definitely be in attendance at The Verge. It's going to be a great place to see a bunch of great new bands, many of whom will be very ready and willing to play at YOUR SCHOOL, and for a lot less money than you would think!

Also, if you're looking to work in the music industry, you should absolutely come! This is going to be a great opportunity to learn about all aspects of the music industry, talk with industry professionals, and get your foot in the door. It would be a shame to miss this!

Also, we've announced several of our acts for The Verge, with more coming out of the woodworks every day. If you like local independent music, or if you're a fan of any of the bands listed below, don't hesitate! Join us at The Verge!!!

Thanks for reading all the way through this. If you're interested at all, you can get the rest of the details at We can't wait to hear from you!!!
