RAIN 8/4: RAIN Summit East to "hit the roof" for D.C. cocktail party
D.C. LAW FIRM DAVIS WRIGHT TREMAINE WILL SPONSOR ANNUAL POST-SUMMIT GATHERINGWe’re delighted to announce today that the RAIN Reader Cocktail Party, our famous social gathering that follows every RAIN Summit, will be sponsored by Davis Wright Tremaine and held on the rooftop of their beautiful new offices.
The rooftop of Davis Wright Tremaine — the law firm of industry attorney and frequent RAIN source David Oxenford — are mere blocks from the White House. Specifically, the RAIN Summit East Cocktail Party will be held at 1919 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, in Washington D.C. from 6pm to 8pm. All RAIN Summit East attendees are invited to the party.

The Summit will not only be jam-packed with insightful speakers and engaging panels, but we’ll be announcing the results of the first-ever RAIN Internet Radio Awards! It’s sure to be even bigger and better than last year’s standing-room-only gathering in Philadelphia.
We hope to see you there!
SLACKER PARTNERS WITH HOT TOPIC FOR MERCH SALESSlacker and clothing retailer Hot Topic have partnered to provide artist-related merchandise to listeners, much in the same way listeners can already buy music from the Internet radio service. Apparently thousands of artists’ merchandise is available through the deal (“Is there a Yo-Yo Ma-inspired hoodie?” App Scout asks), and artists get a portion of the sales. App Scout has more on the story here.
1.FM SIGNS UP FOR JETCAST’S LOYALTY PROGRAMJetcast has announced it has signed up Energy Group Radio — the operator of 1.FM — for Jetcast’s RadioLoyalty Internet radio loyalty program.

SLEEK STEREO WOULD DOCK YOUR iDEVICE, STREAM NET RADIOThis impressive-looking iPod dock does more than your average speaker system. Besides emulating the sleek look of Apple’s iMacs, it can stream Internet radio and play networked music files wirelessly. Alas, it is only a concept at the moment, “but hopefully this one will make it into production.” Dvice.com has more here.
