Saturday’s episode is almost ready to be launched. I had a great chat about music advocacy and I learned a lot during this interview. In this episode you will learn more about what happens behind music venues, with government entities that regulates Arts and Entertainment, how gentrification might affect music scene, and things that probably you were not aware of about advocacy.
As Christopher stated on this interview, supporting a musician is not about attending a free performance, but, instead, supporting him economically by purchasing an admission ticket to a venue, getting their merchandise, as well as any other economic avenue that local musician uses to make a living.
Christopher advise on this episode is very simple and easy to follow: get to know your environment, check who is playing in your local area, and get involved. As you have seen, this podcast is a mean to support indie musicians, so far I have try my best by getting their CDs, and giving them away to those who supports me or via raffles/giveaway prizes.
I do appreciate Christopher Naoum for accepting my invitation to sit and allowed me to record this interview for the benefit of my audience to know more about our city and what is going on in our musical venues. This episode is just the beginning of my new phase or metamorphosis in this area.
If you happened to visit Washington DC or DC Metro Area, make sure not to limit your visit, exclusively, to museums; try to include visiting DC music venues. We have a lot to offer, from Jazz to GoGo. Between that music palette you will find your music niche. Do not be shy, ask your hotel frontier desk where to go to listen to your favorite music being performed by local artists, you will have the best music ride of your life; or send me a email or message thru the contact form. I will be delighted in shinning in with a lot of information. Music is culture; music is arts; music is part of you.
