New Music Seminar – NYC

June 9, 2012 Leave a comment

 

  1. Always choose a venue thats SMALLER than you think you need – whats the worst thing that could happen? It sells out!
  2. Have a range of merchandise – the more choice you give – the more you will sell (but its not about $ – its about KEEPING fans).
  3. Learn to screenprint – you’ll be able to make stuff cooler and cheaper, experiment and give more away.
  4. Make sure you know the 15 reasons your show will succeed – if you only have two …..you’re F@#ked!
  5. Release smaller things more often – EPs and singles and homemade shit sells.
  6. Conquer your local market first! The grass isn’t greener in a far away market – it’s just another shade of brown!
  7. Support your local scene – why do you expect it to support you if you don’t support it? That means going to see other bands, staying all the way through and HELPING if necessary.
  8. Make a video to promote your next show – but feature all of the other bands MORE than you – yes, even though you’re making the video! It ONLY WORKS if people like it and spread it!
  9. Don’t ever be an asshole to anyone: be nice to sound people, crew and, really EVERYONE – no one likes an asshole.
  10. Understand that NO ONE gives a shit about anything you are doing except you (and me).

Diddy’s Music Channel

February 28, 2012 Leave a comment

On Tuesday February 21, the executive VP of Comcast David L. Cohen announced that Comcast is partnering with Sean Diddy Combs to distribute his own music network “Revolt”.  Combs will partner with MTV veteran Andy Schuon on Revolt, which will showcase music and pop culture programming including music videos, live performances, news and interviews with a robust social media component. The network has targeted to launch in 2013.

Revolt, said Combs, “is the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media. We’re building this platform for artists to reach an extraordinary number of people in a completely different way. Revolt will be live, like all great moments in television history.”

Comcast will also distribute networks owned by NBA Legend Magic Johnson.
