Didn’t make it to South By Southwest to find out how to navigate through the music business?

Well if you’re a musician looking to land a gig at the 7th Street Entry, Aster Cafe or some other music venue in the Twin Cities, then check out the Minnesota Music Coalition Wednesday workshop on “The Do’s and Don’ts of DIY Booking.”

Panelists include Nate Kranz (general manager of First Avenue & 7th Street Entry), Sage Dahlen (booker for Cedar Cultural Center), Michael McGregor (agent Hello! Booking), Dana Thompson (booker for Aster Cafe) and touring songwriter Martin Devaney.

The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Landmark Center in St. Paul.

The event is pay what you can.
