Globe-trotting, weed-loving, tech-savvy rock-reggae band Slightly Stoopid is set to play a $10 pay-per-view webcast — put on by the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir — on Tuesday, September 13. The day before, your Legalization Nation columnist will interview two members of the successful ten-year-old band as part of the 9th semi-annual SF MusicTech conference.
Held all day at the Hotel Kabuki, Monday, September 12, tickets are $420 until tonight (Thursday) and $699 at the door. That's because SF MusicTech IX will feature more than 100 speakers and 26 panel sessions, interviews, and engaging group discussions, featuring the likes of Weir; Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid;
Lincoln Parish of Cage the Elephant; Cellist and Composer Zoë Keating; Guitarist Joe Satriani; Dave Dederer of The Presidents of the United States of America; and many others.
The conference's 800-plus registrants include top industry leaders, all converging in San Francisco on Monday and all presumably ready to do some deals.
Here's the schedule. The interview with Doughty and McDonald is scheduled for 4-4:50 PM in the Sakura Room.
