Do you know the future of the music business?

A common downfall of this event is when unsigned artists attend the nightly mixers in hopes of being discovered and they get “wined and dined” by middle aged men in suits that tell them what they want to hear. You can want something so badly that you will trust anyone you hear and believe their words. Put your “street smarts hat” on and go into the crowd confidently yet realistically.
