DANFORTH SIDEBAR OPEN FOR BIZ

It was a real treat being invited to meet with Michael Sherman on the night the Danforth SideBar hosted their industry opening party.

Jacqui Childs got to sit and have a great chat about this new dining component at the Danforth Music Hall. This is on its own a great new dining/cocktailing option on the Danforth.  This stylish new Restobar that is directly beside the Danforth Music Hall is exciting to me. Now music fans can make it a night out. Fans can meet beforehand at the big show and talk about how exciting they are to be seeing their favorite bands. Or, fans can head next door after the show while the electricity is still buzzing from the show they just saw and keep the night going.

They were very snazzy and delicious finger size samples of the tasty foods that are on the main menu passed around, truly delicious. This so much discussion about the Danforth Music Hall but the fact is Danforth Side Bar, in my opinion, is a great dining addition to the Danforth. But it sure is nice the have the biggest live music venue in the largest market in Canada RIGHT NEXT DOOR!!!

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.

11 Things Millennial Musicians Just Don’t Get

I can’t tell you how many artists I see on Spotify with hundreds of thousands or millions of streams, but can’t get even 100 out to their local (or any) shows. Or get anyone to back their crowdfunding campaign. Or support them in any way whatsoever. These listeners are not fans of the artists, they are fans of the playlist these songs got included on. You must understand this new world of streaming we are in. 10 million plays ain’t impressive anymore. Know what is impressive? Bottom lines.
