Intern Update #3

Things still show no sign of slowing down here at Glassnote. CMJ included performances from GIVERS at Terminal 5 with Portugal. The Man and Alberta Cross, Brooklyn Bowl with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Gotye, the Soho house, a special radio performance for KEXP at the Ace Hotel, and another for AOL Sessions. Members of the Glassnote team also spoke on various panels, like Jenna's "Making Free Music Pay" and Alex's "New World of PR". There was also Daniel's Keynote speech with Matt Pinfield, in addition to his presentation to the Sony lifestyle reps which included surprise visits from Oberhofer and Thomas Mars from Phoenix. We celebrated the whole thing with a party at Yotel sponsored by Red Bull, Bushwicks, and Zico; check out the pictures here!

In the midst of all this, we have also been preparing for the release of Childish Gambino's debut album "Camp," coming out November 15 (less than a month)! We have received all of our promotional materials for the release - posters, stickers, AND chapstick, so be sure to be on the lookout for our Sony lifestyle reps. We're excited to have him in New York in the next month; he's currently out on the Sign Up Tour, which is hitting various cities in the US. If you can't catch him there you can tune in to his performances on Jimmy Fallon on November 4th or Conan O'Brien on November 15.

Mumford & Sons are currently on our side of the pond for Neil Young's 25th Annual Bridge School Benefit concert last weekend, as well as a few Canadian dates. Daniel and Marisa just got back from the show in Toronto where they watched the band peform to a crowd of over 20,000.

Many of our artists are hard at work on new material, meaning the next few months will continue to be packed full. Oberhofer, Temper Trap, Phoenix, and Two Door Cinema Club will all have busy 2012's. We have also recently received new tracks from Royal Bangs, which are getting us excited for things to come. In the meantime, make sure to catch them on their US tour with We Were Promised Jetpacks and Bear Hands. If you're in Europe, fear not! GIVERS will be there throughout the entire month of November.

Last weekend Daniel took a trip down to Memphis to meet up with GIVERS at The Recording Academy and present as the keynote speaker at the GRAMMY GPS: A Road Map For Today's Music Biz event. The presentation included a look at the rise of two Glassnote artists, Mumford & Sons and GIVERS as well as an overview to the team approach Glassnote takes at supporting their artists.
While they were in town Daniel & GIVERS visited Graceland.
