A Note For Birmingham Club Owners

Dealing with clubs and venues can be very tough for a musician. In a moment of particular frustration a while back I sat down to write an article about how the relationship between musician and venue needed to change. As I wrote, the article became less about my specific frustrations and more about overall suggestions for improvement to the Birmingham music scene.

Today, a friend turned me on to an article written by LA jazz musician Dave Goldberg which echoes the original frustrations that prompted my post. I can’t let something that speaks my mind this well go without being on this site, so I’m uploading the article here in PDF format. If you’d like to see the original, you can get that here.

If you’re a working musician (or interested in being one) or if you’re a venue owner this is one of the best 5 minute reads you’re going to find. We can do better guys, we have to.
