Summer Screeners-Free Movies in Arcadia this summer!

If you are in the LA area, mark your calendars for FREE MOVIES IN THE PARK, coming to Arcadia this summer! Who doesn’t love watching a great movie, outside in the summer-time? Who can resist when it’s free? How can you stay home when you know the event is for a good cause? Too many questions to ponder so early in a blog post, I know. What can I say, I’m excited!


CHOICESS, a great group that I work with, will be teaming up with The City Of Arcadia, to bring free movie nights back to the park. It’s our way of giving back a little to the community that has supported CHOICESS for so many years.  Please take a second to visit their website,  discover who CHOICESS is and why you should care, give their Facebook page a thumbs up, and don’t forget to bring a blanket and a few lawn chairs!

Please come out and enjoy the fun and fundraising through a variety of sponsorship opportunities. And remember, all sponsorships and proceeds benefit CHOICESS, a non-profit 501(c)3, and the individuals we support.

Event sponsors are also encouraged to donate gift certificates/raffle prizes to further expand their community visibility! We only ask that all donations are received by our publication date, May 1st.

Really Really Good: Top Tweets and Super Sounds

Here’s a quick rundown on some of the sounds found on Twitter & Soundcloud, along with a few news worthy links and Instagrams.










What’s a Canhead and why should you care?

A lot is changed since the last time I launched my WordPress dashboard. Long gone are the days where I could find time surf the net at random, and indulge myself as a blogger. While I may not have the time to do some of the old Internet activities, it doesn’t mean that they’re not needed. So here we are, with the rebirth of the mighty Canhead, yet again.  To recap to the new kids in the crowd, Canhead is basically my management and marketing alias.  Throughout the years I’ve been fortunate enough to work in a variety of projects and events, on both coasts of this great country of ours.  Launch corporate sponsored websites complete with major media marketing, manage concerts promotions, independent & commercial music production and releases, artist management, label promotion, radio promotion, freelance writing, you name it I’ve done it. It’s been a long  road, filled with ups and downs as you would expect, but yet we persevere. Over the years, I have had to adjust several times, as priorities and times change, but our company has withstood the test of time and continues to bring top-notch events to the L.A. area.
(Case in point, I am excited to announce that Pasadena, CA’s very own “Rough City” will be opening for the 2014 Krush Groove Concert in Inglewood California sponsored by 93.5 KDAY. In addition to that we continue to hold regular events and nightclubs and hope to expand our reach in the coming year. Stay tuned for more info on Rough City by following their Facebook page!)
So along with all of that comes the personal question; how do I merge the entertainment marketing aspect of my past working experience into my daytime “9-to-5″ world.  Currently I am working with people with intellectual or developmental disabilities.  This is probably where I should back up in my story. For the past few years I’ve had the privilege of working with several nonprofit organizations working on issues ranging  from education, social justice to disability advocacy. I have had the privilege to meet and work with some amazing individuals and their strength has encouraged me to continue my own business ventures. My goal for the upcoming years is to help bring awareness to all of the great organizations that I have worked with us far, and those who I will hopefully need in the future. Why? Because Canhead cares.
Currently there are several nonprofits I could think up off the top of my head that deserve credit and respect for the hard work that they do in the community. Organizations like CHOICESS, a group of people dedicated to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have and maintain their own housing. Organizations like Clean the World, who bring awareness to several ecological and social justice issues with the simple act of recycling soap. Better World Books brings the needed gift of literacy to several underdeveloped peoples and nations, groups like Public Allies bring out the best of tomorrow’s leaders in today’s most challenged communities. These are just a handful of organizations but I’ve come across and have been thoroughly impressed by.  Seeing these groups in action made me realize that I needed to be doing more.
Canhead Cares.
We will be putting a spotlight on several groups and organizations that deserve your attention and support. It’s going to be a great year, we are excited and hope you will be just as excited to join our little group of  Agents of Social Change!
Canhead Cares.

The Future of Music Licensing? : CommLawBlog

I highly suggest that you take a few minutes and give this article a look through!

“Despite these wholesale changes, the process of licensing recorded music has remained largely static for decades. That’s why many music industry participants – including songwriters, recording artists, broadcasters, Internet radio services – agree that revision of the process is long overdue. “
