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.
