BB: Austin Meetup with guest speaker Gwendolyn Seale

Have you ever wondered what it takes to register your music?! Join us to learn more as we host Gwen from Mike Tolleson & Associates. Bring your questions, bring a friend and join us in a laid back environment! 

Gwendolyn Seale grew up in Houston Texas, across the street from Robert Earl Keen’s childhood home. Throughout this period, she had two main passions, basketball and music.

In her second year at SMU, she began interning at two music venues in the Dallas Deep Ellum district, Trees and The Bomb Factory, where she did everything from assisting with social media accounts to selling merchandise for bands. She also managed a local Austin band during her final year at SMU. Amidst working for venues and a band, she was an editor on the Science and Technology Law Review, where she began writing about the implications of social media in different areas of the law. This passion propelled her to take a social media law course with Professor John Browning after which they co-authored an article, “More Than Words: The Evidentiary Value of Emoji,” which received the G. Duffield Smith Outstanding Publication Award from the DRI in 2016 and later was structured into an online Texas CLE lecture.

Currently, along with working at Mike Tolleson and Associates, specializing in entertainment law, she helps some Texas-based bands with booking shows and improving their social media accounts.

Live music from Arielle, The Love Sprockets and Cavalier. 



Arielle 6PM


The Love Sprockets 7PM
Jahnavi and Addison, founding members of The Love Sprockets and Mojo Folk masters, made their way to Austin from Vermont in 2013 with little more than their bicycles and the tools of their trade – mandolin, fiddle, ukulele, and harmonica. Now, after 4 years of living and playing in Austin, they're on to their next adventure in Colorado: converting a school bus into their home and tourbus! Come see them perform for the last time in Austin for a while! You can follow their adventure at www.thelovesprockets.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thelovesprockets

Cavalier 8PM
New to Austin, this Florida-grown duo has no friends in ATX, or anywhere, honestly, which is why it only has two members. 

This pop-acoustic duo comes with a refreshing mix of finger-style acoustic, love-drunk piano, and infectious melodies you'll find yourself singing days later. 

Strong lyricism and songwriting (about girls who don't text them back) mix in spectacular fashion with the full, eclectic guitar to drive a fresh, clean sound that at least their moms really like. 

Their Trouble EP will be hitting the public summer '17
