Re: “Run the Jewels, Mastodon, Santigold, NOFX, and more take over EAV for Project Pabst

3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return. Who are these people?

Re: “8 greatest punk shows in Atlanta

Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring of 1980. I remember that someone gave Iggy a single white rose during the show which he proceeded to eat! The Restraints opened and the singer was hit with a Tooheys beer oil can which he stuck on his Kaiser helmet spike.

Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's not even emailed to you. Isn't this exactly the sort of thing that got Ticketmaster dinged?

Re: “8 greatest punk shows in Atlanta

That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club. It was an incredible show and LOUD!!!!! I'm still kicking myself for not knowing in time about week long stint, I could've been there every night.

Re: “Leonard Cohen at the Fox

That crazy woman was known to jump onto any online review about Leonard's concerts and she would verbally rip him apart. This is one deluded, sick individual who felt absolutely no remorse about stealing from him and had the horrible audacity to accuse him from withdrawing income from her! What nonsense. >:(

Getting dislikes for saying I think the lineup is good? Weird. Who does that-- and why?

As long as they don't have Charles Bradley playing at the same time as Mastodon or Run the Jewels, this will be GOLD.

NOFX - hell yeah! That'll get me there.

No PBR, though, since they were bought by a Russian company, which is too bad because it's the best cheap beer. It got me through the thirsty crash of '09.

Re: “Atlanta #blessed with music fests in 2016

You forgot to include an internationally acclaimed music festival to be held September 7-10 right here in the ATL.
It's one of the world's most respected metal festivals and draws an international clientele (of both attendees and performers) every September to Center Stage, and it sold out within days....but since it doesn't involve rap or hip-hop you just didn't know....or didn't care.

Re: “What does the future hold for Atlanta music?

It is comforting to read that the Atlanta music scene is alive, well and growing (“The Future is Now”), in light of the meltdown of the worldwide music industry. The development of a strong community of musicians, venues, practice spaces and fans will be critical to the future life of music in Atlanta. But as with musicians in every city in the US, Atlanta’s musicians and songwriters will continue to face an uphill battle for national recognition. Why? Because record companies have capitulated to streaming services in a failed attempt to curtail piracy, to the extent that they’ve accepted ownership positions in certain streamers. No streamer is making money (check out the $Millions that Spotify loses…), even though they pay artists very poorly and songwriters hardly at all. Despite this fact, streaming service freemiums have shot the present culture of music lovers into space. The culture has changed completely; no one is buying music anymore - - fans only listen. They don’t care about OWNING music. The result of this culture change is that a $15B US industry 15 years ago is a $7-8B industry now. With the revenue decline, record companies have had to slash budgets for promotion, A&R, artist development and tour support. This is a disaster for new artists and songwriters. Companies no longer have the luxury of keeping an artist on the roster long enough for them to develop a large audience, while streaming music has never translated into significant sales. For a flourishing national music community to succeed, musicians and songwriters have to be able to make a living. That’s become pretty difficult now.
