About This Event

TECH AND…  is a monthly event series where we host thought-leaders from a specific industry and explore new intersections between their field and technology.

TECH AND MUSIC

In August we are exploring the intersection of music and technology. You’ll hear thought leaders and musicians in the DC scene share how the distribution of songs and albums has been shaped by the internet’s free market, how the relationship between record labels and artists has adjusted to the times, and what the future of music looks like in a digital world.

Date: Friday, August 25
Time: 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Location: General Assembly DC, 1776 | 1133 15th St. NW, 8th Floor WDC 20005
Cost: FREE, but REGISTRATION is required

Why It Matters:
The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.
