Welcome!
Multiple Venues are Planned for IMC2012

Attention Performers:
Are you interested in performing at IMC/LA?
To be eligible,
at least one member of your group must register for the conference.

The Independent Music Conference is trying to change people's perceptions regarding music conferences. The term "showcase" has earned a bad reputation; it's a lot like that other phrase "battle of the bands." The "s-word" has often been used in many promotional schemes designed to simply make a lot of money off of hopeful musicians who pay $25, $35 and even more just for a CHANCE to perform. Some events can charge up to $1000 for a "showcase slot!" The carrot that these events dangle in front of the musicians is the promise of "industry people" in the audience who might "sign you" or "discover you." How many bands can you name that this actually happened to? The IMC will not take advantage of any performers by promising things we can't absolutely deliver. This event is based in reality, and we promise to give you a high quality educational and networking experience, not carrots. We prefer to use the word "performance" instead and that's exactly what the IMC will be presenting... high energy independent music performances.

CURRENT VENUES PLANNED:

Pig 'n Whistle - October 17th • IMC Kick-Off Party!
Musicians Institute - Nightly Shows • State-of-the-art Performance Room!
Universal Bar & Grill - Offsite Performances featuring great IMC Artists!

Only registered attendees may perform, so someone in your group has to be sincere about attending the IMC for the learning and networking. Please do not contact us if performance is your only goal.
