How Do Street Teams Operate? ft. Lindsey McLemore

This week we have the wonderful Lindsey McLemore on the podcast to talk about street teams. Street teams were much more popular back in the early 2000’s – however, they do still exist today in a more refined form. Lindsey is a marketing manager at The Syndicate and works with them closely to help bring labels, bands, managers’ marketing dreams to life. They have done some remarkable projects with artists such as Panic! At The Disco and LCD Soundsystem. We think street teams are a great way for anyone to get started in the music industry – so we figured we would break it down for you and teach you what exactly it is they do. I hope you enjoy this week’s episode!

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• How street teams help promote artists today
• About how Lindsey from working at Lollapalooza to leading a street team
• The importance of reaching out to your local promoters and venues
• How labels work with independent street teams
