go to SHOWS...and find some live Rotary Downs on the official MIDEM website.
Chris, J Clark and i are just getting off our full day of airplanes and decompression to finally be back to our respective homes. it feels good. I wouldn't suggest flying to France w/ your buddies to only stay for 2.5 days. And most of those days were spent loading in, travelling in shuttles, or schlepping gear. But it was a unique experience to network with some of the most innovative music business folks in the world. Picture the Convention Center with 3 levels of booths housing companies from every country, sending their distribution, labels, pressing, booking, DVD manufacturing companies to one place.
Buzz bands, buzz words, hi-heels, guitar-hero, networking bizness cards interchanging hands, and ear protection...this was MIDEM,...all day. And RD got to play an evening showcase. IT was a blast.
Just don't eat the chicken on Air France..
