Apparently no one’s on the internet tonight! Good for you!
If anyone else has got any questions about our calendar, the music biz and how things work, or stuff about your band, ask away! I’m just sitting here getting some work done!
1. Circa/Title Fight, Foxy Shazam, Bayside, The Felix Culpa, and Dads!
2. I’m a very casual fan, in that I can’t really think of any particular episodes at the moment. Mostly a fan of Homer and some of the side characters.
And I need to get into that Code Orange record. I’ll bet it’s real nasty. And Deafheaven’s got all kinds of buzz. Excited for that show. Can’t get into Bleachers’ record, even though I LOVE the single. Will keep trying though, might have to let it grow on me a little.
Internships. Volunteer. Get involved. Learn the trade, whatever part of the biz you want to get into. Be a sponge. Listen first, then speak. But when you speak, do so confidently. Ask questions. Be organized. Take business, communication, English, and computer classes. Come to shows early and watch what all goes down. Stay late and offer to help clean up (at local/DIY shows). Just be a part of it all.
What part of the biz are you looking to get into?
Hey all! It’s been a while since I’ve done this, so let’s talk shop tonight! I’m looking to answer any questions you might have about this fall’s upcoming Fusion Shows calendar, the music business in general, or how to get your band to meet some of your immediate goals!
Just click the “Have A Question? Ask Us!” link on the left side of our Tumblr page! Looking forward to spending the evening talking about my favorite thing, music!
P.S. Include in your post what you’re listening to. I’ve got this playlist on my Spotify that literally has every album I think I’ve ever liked, and I’m blasting through that on random. Currently, “Jimmy, He Whispers” by Manchester Orchestra.
