About this event

For the second year running, RACC is proud to bring the whole PDX music scene together at Happening! 2015. Just like last year, we’re inviting Portland’s musicians, bookers, managers, music writers, label owners, and the various characters who make music happen in this town. Last time around, we made some connections, opened some doors, and learned some tricks. We’re doing it again, and we’ll have the same program that made the first one such a

Experts leading small groups on topics like running a label, legal issues for artists, and booking shows -Veterans hosting a discussion on the urgent issues we’re all facing as Portland music people -Maybe most importantly, sometime shoot the breeze with our old and new pals

Happening! 2015 will be an exploratory conversation about how music works around here, and how artists, professionals, and supporters shape the scene.
We’ll focus on the issues we all deal with – how do you get paid for the work you love when everything’s changing? How do get good music out to the most people? But we’ll have plenty of time to address everyone’s individual questions, too.

So bring your stories, questions, and ideas. Once again, we’ll bring snacks, beer, experts, and conversation. Let’s work together to make music happen.

Presenter: David Gluck is a Portlander, a musician, and music professional, probably in that order. Since coming home to Portland in 2010, he has performed and recorded with The Sorry Devils as a guitarist, bassist, and singer. He made music his day job for the first time at CD Baby, where he was a music publishing specialist, and now works with labels and artists at Rumblefish, a music licensing firm. He also volunteers as the Compilation Coordinator for PDX Pop Now! in his excessive free time. This is his second year working on RACC’s Happening!
