Converse to Open Rubber Tracks Studio In Boston

Sounds like a win, win for everyone BUT in the back of mind I can't help wondering, "whats the catch?"

Sound Engineering Declared Grumpiest Profession In The World

I must be lucky because I've worked with nearly a dozen sound guys over the years, in venues/gigs large and small, and I don't remember any of them being a difficult.

What about you? Any stories?

Too funny.  I'd have thought bassist since we sometimes have to deal with drummers who can't keep time and guitarist who play too busy and walk all over the empty spaces that should be there.  I guess every role has its complaints.

Why You Should BYOA (Bring Your Own Audience)

Maybe I am pointing out the obvious but just in case. This is THE most important thing a musician should be thinking about if they want to build a career (after he/she has the "making good music" thing down anyway).

With the explosive combined growth of social media, crowdfunding and ecommerce, you are now expected to demonstrate that what you are saying, selling or producing already has a built in audience.

You Can Play This *Music Festival*… If You PAY $1,200

You really have to know your numbers and know that you can convert fans from the stage (and via some guerrilla stuff pre and post show) to figure out your return on investment here.

It would be an interesting case study to find out how many bands took them up on this. Then follow those bands to see if they thought it was worth it.

Spotify has become the Facebook of music streaming. I jumped back in with the 3 months for a penny promo. It's much improved over a couple of years ago. It won't be replacing Google Play All Access Music for me but I see the appeal for the regular Joe.
