Summary

RethinkPopMusic hosts three monthly showcases that feature at least one of their artists and are seeking supporting acts. Based on draw, acts may be booked at Cameo Gallery (first Saturdays) Crash Mansion (second Tuesdays w/ 2hr full open bar recommended for releases) The Studio at Webster Hall (last Saturdays) and Santos Party House (varies). Submitting acts should have a following in NYC or the ability to ruthlessly promote. Regional acts are welcome to submit as RethinkPopMusic often exchanges dates when our artists are on tour. Average attendance at these events is around 400 music fans and industry professionals. Bands will keep 80% of their polled door. /n/nRethinkPopMusic hosts three monthly showcases that feature at least one of their artists and are seeking supporting acts.

What is RethinkPopMusic?

RethinkPopMusic is a company devised and operated by young music industry professionals that are fed up with the exploitation of artists and an industry-wide lack of innovation. In short, RethinkPopMusic is a multiplatform initiative that will introduce “unaffiliated” musicians to consumer brands, film, television and numerous other facets of pop culture.
