November is also the month MEI takes place.
MEI was born as a three days meeting for all the indiependent
Italian labels along with conferences and live events. It was cool
’till some years ago. Then every little label used internet to spread
its artists, people lost interest in phisically represent their record
under a tent, talent started to try to get scouted sending songs as an
mp3 attachment, prizes were given only following the rule of
underground mobby aims.
There was not a real purpose to get up and go to MEI this years. If not for Indipendulo, an all-day-long live event presenting some of the best indie bands of the moment.
