Weekly Roundup Plus the Best Free Things on the Internet

2012 Future of Music Coalition Summit

This week, we got a visit from the Total Disruption crew (more to come, shortly, on the work we did with those fine folks) and listened to a Bob Dylan classic filtered through computer equipment.

We also signed up for the free webcast of Future of Music Coalition’s Summit happening this coming Tuesday. In-depth discussions on how the recent election results will impact music policy and how artists can leverage emerging digital channels will be in the mix. It’s an event not to be missed so make sure you register here.

Have a great weekend and start it off right with the best free things on the Internet.

Fugazi Live Shows from the Internet Archive

Fugazi

Fugazi hasn’t performed live. In ten years. (November 4th marked the day.) The good news is you can download their incendiary live shows, including their last hometown appearance in Washington, D.C.

Bram Stoker's Dracula Google Doodle

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

The author of ‘Dracula,’ a novel that has shaped the image of the modern vampire, would’ve been 165 years old today. Google created this wonderful doodle featuring the book’s main characters to honor Bram Stoker’s legacy. Want a refresher/something to make your next roadtrip super creepy? We’ve got the audiobook.
