Independent concert promoter Another Planet Entertainment on Tuesday announced that it was expanding its artist management arm with the acquisition of Los-Angeles-based Telegraph Road Management, which manages Billy Idol, Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench, Cherry Glazerr, Miya Folick and Advertisement.

Another Planet already managed Tycho, Saint Sinner, Poolside, Amen Dunes, Madeline Kenney, Nap Eyes and Minna Choi, as well as recently signed DRAMA and Brijean. Laurence Freedman, who ran Telegraph Road Management,  will head Another Planet’s new Southern California office.

“We’re thrilled to be joining Another Planet, an independent, like-minded company I have long admired on a professional and personal level,” Freedman said in a news release.

Another Planet Management was founded by Bryan Duquette as an offshoot of Another Planet Entertainment, headed by CEO Gregg Perloff.

“As the pandemic continued, I shifted my focus from the promoter side to growing the artist management company to further diversify Another Planet,” Duquette said in the news release. “Los Angeles being a hub of our industry is a natural extension for our business strategically and Telegraph Road immediately gives us a footprint in that community to enhance the business of our existing clients along with the opportunity to sign new clients.”

Another Planet Entertainment was founded in 2003. It’s the exclusive promoter for the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and The Independent in San Francisco, Greek Theatre in Berkeley, the Fox Theater in Oakland, Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys and Oxbow RiverStage in Napa. APE also produces Outside Lands and Life Is Beautiful festivals.
