What’s Up With The 1975?

What’s Up With The 1975?

If I could, I would link The 1975's website and social media accounts to this post in case you weren't familiar with them, but unfortunately I can't. Because they've all been deactivated.

The meeting brought together leaders from various industries located in Philly, from tech to non-profit, to entertainment and education.

Social Media and Music

Every band and musician needs to have several foundations in place if they want to survive in the music industry. Talent, passion, and good publicity, to name a few. But how exactly does a band achieve that? For many bands starting out, many do not have the budget to hire a publicist, and some bands may  not want [...]
