Red Bull Music Academy hits Japan for 2011 – you wanna go?

Red Bull Music Academy’s annual tour sees Peanut Butter Wolf and James Pants both of Stones Throw Records fame come out to Australia for a series of performances and lectures.

On Tuesday 22nd March, Revolver Upstairs will host the Melbourne Lecture and Information session with special guest speaker Peanut Butter Wolf, hip hop producer and founder of the revered Stones Throw Records.

During the info session, Wolf will be available to answer your questions, whether it’s about the application process or how he makes music. He will be there to give insight into his career, what lessons he has learnt along the way, and share some industry secrets.

The session is FREE and for those getting in early, there will also be some food and drinks provided. DOORS AT 7PM!

The lecture will be followed by the Melbourne CDR session where local producers and artists are also invited to bring along a burnt CD of their fresh tracks you have been making on to a CDR and hear them played on a bangin’ sound system.
