Apra Amcos & Music Victoria Present: Geelong - A Music City

7 Mar 2017, 5:30pm - 8:00pm

A number of factors have seen Geelong develop a unique and influential array of musicians across many eras and genres. 

In this two part panel hosted by editor-in-chief at Forte Magazine Amanda Sherring we first delve into the musical history of Victoria’s second biggest city with Au-Go-Go Records founder and all-round Australian music brain Bruce Milne. 

Part two will see APRA AMCOS and MUSIC VICTORIA offering a unique opportunity to gain insight from the Geelong’s scene’s current creative curators - offering information and advice on booking shows, writing, promoting and circulating your music independently. Offering their experience and sage advice will be psych-folk Flightless Records artist Leah Senior, Barwon Club booker Al O’Neil and Billy Gardner who runs Anti-Fade Records, plays in a bunch of bands (Ausmuteants, Living Eyes and Cereal Killer) and co-runs Jerkfest.
