Our friends at Haulix have posted a blog about the "Things to Do in College That Will Prepare You For the Music Industry" -- it's an interesting read. I agree with quite a bit of it (and most of the advice doesn't just apply to the music industry, but life in general) but here's my main advice for those that want to get into the music industry in some fashion: figure out what that phrase really means to you. I hear so many people say they want to work "in the music industry" and then when I ask what part they just say something like, "uh, I dunno, at a label or something."

I just pay attention. If there's buzz or enough people recommend something to me, I'll listen most the time. We also take submissions for Showcases, and that's a great way to find new bands.

It's been a success.
