Join Us for Our Next PBLA Open House on June 20: Artist Insight w/ Sweatson Klank

Point Blank’s Online Magazine Matt Stewart-Evans

Join us on Thursday June 20th at 7pm for a special Open House event at our gorgeous location in the Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles, where we will be celebrating the release of Point Blank LA instructor Sweatson Klank’s new album ‘Super Natural Delights’.  The album drops in early June on the mighty Friends of Friends label and you are invited to witness an exclusive hour long interview with the man himself about his production techniques, getting the record signed, and insights into the creative process behind the album. We will also be giving away a free copy of the album on vinyl as well as a free copy of Ableton Live Suite to two lucky attendees.

During the PBLA Open House, you’ll also be able to take a tour of our home in the famous hundred-year-old studios, get a look at the state-of-the-art equipment we use and ask any questions of our Course Advisor team. For anyone looking to learn more about music production or the inner workings of the music industry this one is not to be missed! All you need to do is RSVP on Eventbrite to book your place.
