Born To Be Wide – Edinburgh purveyors of music social nights and seminars (the business and the pleasure of entertainment rolled into one evening) – continues its mission to demystify and drink, with an event which will teach indie musicians everything they need (they claim, ha!) about releasing your own music.

Topics covered will include how to get music into shops(online as well as proper one), CD/vinyl pressing (er, the Czech Republic), plus the dull stuff that actually makes money, like registering with collection societies, legal considerations and promotion.

On the panel will be Ally Gray of online distributor EMU Bands, Duncan McCrone (pictured) from the MCPS, Shona McGuire (Plum), Matthew Young (head amphibian at Song By Toad), plus another TBC. The show starts at 7.30 pm at The Electric Circus on Thursday 4th October.

(The title, by the way, is from Iron Maiden’s ‘666: Number of the Beast’. Thoght it sounded familiar…)
