Young Guru is visiting the Bay Area as part of his multi-city “Unmaster Class” speaking tour. This is a lecture by Young Guru himself about the D.I.Y side of recording records. Young Guru gets a lot of clients that want to book big rooms and pay top dollar for blocks, when the majority or records nowadays are recorded on the road (in hotels, tour buses, etc.), so he will be bringing up some fairly big records that he recorded at his home studio space.

Admission is FREE to Expression and SAE students, but seating is limited, so RSVP to JAMES CORTES at j.cortes@sae.edu with your name and email address ASAP.
