Calling all defenders of the open internet! This Wednesday (that’s November 19), Future of Music Coalition and realizePhiladelphia — an advocacy group that promotes social causes through musical and educational events — will host web.illish.us, a multi-faceted event that raises awareness about net neutrality.
Silk City in Philly is the venue, but you don’t have to be a local to “attend” — web.illish.us will also be webcast live at the event website.
The Nov. 19 show is the first in a series that take place at Silk City on the third Wednesday of the month, through February 18, 2009.
The debut installment is called “level, up, ppl,” and features music from Black Landlord, Tuphace and DJ C Sharp. Speakers include FMC’s Education Director Kristin Thomson, entertainment attorney and Drexel Music Industry Program Director Marcy Rauer Wagman, studio producer/engineer Robert Taj Walton (Fugees, Boyz 2 Men, Wyclef Jean), William Lewis of Big Bloc Entertainment and Geoff DiMasi of P’unk Avenue.
