Music Marketing: No Man is an Island

images3.jpeg

The ACSE is about promoting the artistic hustler. Its creating success doing whatever it takes (but you still have to look good). When I started this, I considered it a “given” that every artistic hustler relied on others – their friendships, co-conspirators – to make stuff happen. That is how my friends roll, so I thought it was across the board. Uh, no. One of my favorite blogs is Indie Musician. The author has gobs and gobs of useful information/resources for independent musicians. The current article is about The Pirate Bar, an illegal film file sharing company and it’s moves to purchase an island to avoid copyright laws. Auntie and I find this a bit pathetic. Its cool to buy your own island, but if they were true Super Star Hustlers, they would have used & expanded their connections to change the application of the laws. Not run.
