Old May 20th, 2009, 09:15 PM        local music scene is fucking retarded
made the decision the other day to quit both of the bands i'm in after this summer. local music has taken a huge fucking u-turn (at least around here) and it's killing me

when we started out it was all FREE basement shows, no desire to get big, yadda yadda. now, around here there's basically two places to play: an art gallery (either free shows or $5 donation, amazing space, totally DIY) or this place called rocko's which is kind of like a hall / bar. the catch with rocko's is that you have to sell between 10-50 tickets (depending on whether or not you're playing with a touring band) and only one group of people book shows there. oh, and the shows there are like $10+, and they book like 8 bands

it's just retarded. no one wants to sit through 8 local bands who are all literally copied and pasted myspace url's of eachother. and i dunno, i really miss FREE local music. for fuck's sake, it's not like we get paid for any of this (nor do i want to). and all the people i'm in bands with are all like "let's tour" or "when we make it big..." and all this shit

FUCK MAN CAN'T WE JUST PLAY SOME FUCKING MUSIC? I DON'T GIVE A FUCK IF PEOPLE COME TO SEE ME PLAY

i'm a fucking bitch. die music die

Do you need to be on stage? I just want to make music and never be on stage.

I just want to make people move. Success is a by-product. If I get a wider audience through such a thing, so be it. All the better. Though, opinions change.

It took me FOREVER to find any good local music in Louisville, mainly Furlong (A good Pavement/Ween styled band), the Photographic (Post-rock), and Stonecutters (SLUDGE)

You need to either get a new bar to play at or move somewhere else then.

Start your own bar and only let bands play that do free shows.

i'll admit that making high energy music, playing it in front of an audience, and having not only the band get into it but also the audience is an awesome experience (if i didn't believe in this, i wouldn't go to shows). but do i need to be on stage? no. fuck no actually. especially not if it constitutes bullshit like i described above

members in my bands say that this is how they feel, but i truly think that they want to make a living out of it. i really really don't. i care about other things to devote my life to other than music

dude you have no idea

the thing that i guess annoys me even more , is that there is this kid pogo who started working for that booking company i was talking about like 5 months ago. ever since he started working for them he's gotten a (what he claims to be) "good knowledge on how to promote your band and get shows". he was lecturing one of my bandmates chris about how we need to add like 123981923 myspace friends, make banners all around the web, make bulletins every 5 seconds, blah blah blah. like fucking seriously? do i need to do this to have fun?

I'M SO FUCKING MAD AGAIN THANKS GUYS

Pogo sounds like aguy who knows stuff about things. Shit like this is why I have a high respect for Fugazi.

I wonder if Fugazi even has a Myspace I'm afraid to look.

Hopefully there is a "This is not a Fugazi Myspace" Myspace.

Hi,

Not so long ago, Mill Avenue was the center of the universe for local bands trying to break into the music industry. Almost every band signed out of the Tempe scene in the '90s made it via the conventional route, cutting their teeth in the nightclubs along the strip, winning fans, and forging relationships with other bands.
