Martin Atkins, The Bad Things, Gigantor, Spiderface
"An evening with Martin Atkins.
Martin will be discussing issues covered in his book "Welcome To The Music Business *you're FUCKED!" A DIY book about the music business. "

Martin Atkins is the definition of entrepreneurial activity in cultural arts endeavors. His three decades in the music business spans across genres, borders and industries. Having experience in nearly every aspect of record production and promotion has given Martin a unique perspective not only on where the music industry is currently, but where it is going in the future.

After playing drums in a variety of English bands, Martin auditioned for and subsequently joined Johnny Rotten's Public Image Limited in 1979. His first contribution to the band was cowriting and performing on the song "Bad Baby" for the revered Metal Box LP. After touring the world with P.i.L and contributing to several more studio albums Martin left the group in 1985. Over the next five years, he played with and managed Killing Joke and toured with Ministry. In 1990, while on tour with Ministry, he formed his own band, Pigface. He also worked with Nine Inch Nails, performing on the Grammy award winning "Wish" and appearing in the "Head like a Hole" video.

Martin began working on the business side of music in 1988 when he formed Invisible Records and then Mattress Factory Studios in 1996. Over two decades Invisible has released over 350 albums and has had placements spanning from the original Miami Vice to Showtime's Queer as Folk to Robert Altman's The Company.

Atkins wrote his book Tour:Smart in 2007 and has since spoken around the world at major industry conferences, recognized universities, and nonprofit organizations. His distinguished speaking resume includes: SXSW, Warped Tour, CMJ, New Music Seminar, Unconvention, NAMM, By:Larm, Dfest, USC, Drexel, Virginia Commonwealth University, Full Sail, Weiden + Kennedy, Chicago Cultural Center and many more.

Stick around because after the lecture we have 3 of Seattle's best bands.

Seattle's kings of boozy, punk cabaret, THE BAD THINGS

GIGANTOR - Soulful Reggae out of Seattle featuring Lynval Golding of the Specials

And the manic, theatrical bombshell sounds of SPIDERFACE!!
