Scaling back from last year’s exhaustive half-day affair, the fifth annual Protect Athens Music conference, a co-presentation of the UGA Music Business Program and the law school’s Sports and Entertainment Law Society, features two meaty panel discussions and a chance to network with other local folks experiencing or interested in a career in music. The first panel, moderated by Elf Power's Andrew Rieger, will focus on the role of record labels in an increasingly democratic digital environment. The second, led by former Flagpole music editor Michelle Davis (and featuring yours truly), will explore the pros and cons of bands handling their own publicity. Come on down and get learnt.
