#128: Roundtable – How Much Are Musicians Paid to Play? Part 2

Selling music at showsThinking about touring Canada anytime soon? Think again. Canada’s new exorbitant performance fees make it nearly impossible for non-Canadian independent acts to play there. iTunes radio is alive and may not turn out to be the Pandora killer that some assumed it would be.

We asked our listeners “How much money do you pull in at a gig?” The answers might surprise you. Tune in to hear how artists just like you are ‘bringing home the vegi-bacon’ in this action-packed episode of the Do-it-Yourself–Because-You-Love-it Musician Podcast.

#120: Roundtable – Are You Ready To Go Viral?

Are you ready to go viral?Rumors of the DIY Podcast’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. Mark Twain, on the other hand, is quite dead. In this episode of the DIY Musician Podcast, Chris, Kevin, and the Bolt investigate what a musician needs to be prepared for if he or she becomes suddenly successful online. Some artists seem to be ready and take full advantage of a viral event, while others are little-prepared and thus fall into a drug-infused tailspin that leads them to a life of debauchery and petty crime. Wouldn’t you rather be prepared? Find out what the podcasters have to say on the subject of viral preparedness.

Tuck, duck, and Rock n’ Roll my friends, the DIY Musician Podcast is back!
