About Changing Lanes
Changing Lanes is a speaker series produced by Pivot Marketing in partnership with The Bureau. Each installment provides an opportunity to hear community leaders, business owners, and industry experts candidly recount their most vulnerable moments on their paths to success. We aim to shine a light on the back stories—the risks and challenges that went into making the vision a reality.
Each attendee will be entered to win a free one-month basic membership to the The Bureau. Winners will be announced at the end of the event.
Sign ups open at 6:30pm. Usually the list is full after 10 minutes, so please don’t delay! Draw a number, and turn it in to Chris Wolf.
First 30 names are taken, no exceptions after 30.
We have 30 songwriters sign up to perform a song each to a packed, attentive and respectful audience. What more could you ask for? Bring your best song!
ALL GENRES WELCOME
ORIGINAL MUSIC ONLY!
All ages are welcome.
Each songwriter will perform 1 ORIGINAL song, so come with your best material. The next song writer will follow, and everyone present that evening will cycle through. If we have enough time, we will draw names from a hat to decide who play the 2nd round.
The point of this is for you to LISTEN and be attentive to others
There will be random drawings for goodies throughout the evening, so stick around!!!
Are you an aspiring producer or DJ wanting to learn more about the craft?

Please join us for the first ever, “Gear Together” presented by Indy String Theory. Sunday, Nov. 11th Square Cat Vinyl will host Indy String Theory and friends, Guitarist Bradley Mitchell and Jason Sheesley from Irvington’s own Alphatone Audio at 2pm.
Do you use effects pedals? Are you on a search for the perfect tone? If so please consider joining our conversational show and tell all about pedals. What’s the best way to run your pedal chain? Which pedal goes best where? What are the effects I should start with, and what does pedal chain even mean? What makes a pedal boutique? All these questions and more will be addressed and answered.
Along side us will be our pal and guitarist/singer, songwriter Bradley Mitchell. Brad can be seen performing around Indy solo, with his trio, and with acts Pom Teddy and Brick House. He will be manning the riffs and sharing his opinions on his favorite pedals and what he’s been playing lately, among other things.
We will also be welcoming Jason Sheesley of Alphatone Audio. Jason makes inovative cables with the highest qualitiy materials. From patch cables to mutliple channel snakes these cables will last a lifetime. He will be there to provide us with what we need to know about our cabling, and how best to manage it for our pedalboard.
