      It's just one of those things that happen in a world where music isn't really valued... even by the people who made it. It's not a route I'd ever want to go down when it comes to music. Sure, if you've got a solid financial plan for an enterprise that has a hope of turning some profit, up front investment is a good idea. But a kickstarter to make some music? It's like a strange blend of holding your own talent to ransom, and begging.

          If you take you're band seriously you'll seek a number of funding routes to raise capital, including your own pocket. If that's the ONLY thing they're doing, well - sticking feathers up your arse does not make you a chicken.

            i rather play live and get paid and save that money for recording than begging on kickstarter.

                Ah, you'd rather play live in the past then?

                    Well done. I'd be interested to know what sort of places you play, how many people you bring and how much you get paid. And I guess what blend of music you're playing.

                      it's weird because all you really need these days is a laptop and some instruments to get your music out. after that, one would think you could either sink or swim based on the results.

                      but then, I went to art school and I know wannabe artists come up with all kinds of excuses. "well if we recorded in a studio or had better gear, we'd make better music or people would take us more seriously." or "we can't make a profit because everyone is file sharing and stealing the music of bands no one has ever heard of."
                      This MH -2 does not face the person in search of a beautiful thing such as the new article.

                      It works perfectly as much as it is surprised to be an old model.
                      As for the thing 30 years ago, it can't think of it.

                        amanda palmer apparently needed over a million dollars to record whatever piece of **************** she wanted to put out. established acts using kickstarter yay!
                        We just spent $64,000 in that bar. We're going to have to get jobs, to cover up the fact that we rob banks.

                          I don't know how Loobs does it, but I'd suggest approaching bookings agents.

                          They don't generally get discussed when this topic comes up. You can get between

                            And apparently she can't afford a backup band.
