360 Deals Demystified at SFSU

Send Lawyers, Guns and Money: Dina LaPolt
This Thursday, San Francisco State University hosts "The New Deal: 360 & Beyond," a one-day seminar and discussion on the new record label contract. A "360 Deal" is an agreement between artist and label which covers not only record sales, but also cuts the label in on merchandise, concert tickets, ringtones, and other potential revenue streams previously off-limits. Made famous by artists like Jay-Z and Madonna--megastars who have inked headline-grabbing 360 deals with entities such as Live Nation--there are many questions concerning the viability of such arrangements for smaller acts.

Renowned entertainment attorneys Dina LaPolt and Michael Aczon will be on hand to discuss, demystify, and define the 360 deal, including key areas of negotiation, such as pay or play clauses, multiple rights, and other important deal points. Geared toward record and music publishing executives, producers, artists, artist managers, artist representatives, music attorneys, concert industry professionals, and brand marketing and creative executives, "The New Deal" costs $25 for members of the National Association of Record Industry Professionals, and $40 for everyone else.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
