Hello Mississippians! We'd also like to say hello to: Brazil, Australia, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Canada, India, & France for taking an interest in Mississippi Happening online!
July is going to be a fun month! Summer is officially in full swing, and to boot, Mississippi Happening is bringing something new to our table. We are starting our "Bring The Music Home" series July 26. "Bring The Music Home" is an effort to bring touring bands to Mississippi for the sole purpose of encouraging networking opportunities for our local bands serious about taking their music outside of Mississippi.
July 26, we kick off this journey at Sneaky Beans in Jackson, MS with live performances!!!
We'll have The Forms from Brooklyn, NY. They run their own record label; so this is a great opportunity to come and ask questions about how they run it, book their nationwide tours, and generate a living doing what they love.
Also, if you are unable to make the show at Sneaky Beans, no worries, we'll have a Live Online VIDEOCAST of the whole show right here on the Mississippi Happening webpage!
Hope to see y'all out!
-Daniel Guaqueta for Ms Hap!
