I'm beyond excited.
I enjoy that this debate's showing up in a mainstream newspaper as opposed to some enthusiast message board.
Featuring appearances by Bad Religion, the Bronx, Careers in Science, the Courtneys, Crusades, Daniel Romano, Direct Hit!, the Flatliners, Greys, Jim Guthrie, Marine Dreams, Mind Spiders, Moon King Neko Case, Night Birds, Pissed Jeans, Pkew Pkew Pkew (Gunshots), Pup, Radioactivity, Restorations, the Sadies, Shotgun Jimmie and the Thermals.
The former is a matter of skill, which can be refined through practice. The latter’s about motivation. It’s driven by emotion and the perception of value.
Unlike many of our tools, success with social media is almost entirely reliant on the latter.
We'll be chatting some Niagara-centric events as well as some of the music festivals Adam's worked with for Punknews.org.
