    By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

    At the SXSW “Can Social Music Save the Music Industry?” panel, the panel discussed the direct-to-fan relationship with social media.

    Michelle You, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Songkick introduced herself by stating she started Songkick because “we loved going to shows.” She adds, “The average American goes to one concert a year and we think that’s completely atrocious.”

    Songkick is the second largest music website behind Livenation, and announced series B funding from Sequoia last week.
