Re: “Bay Area Vibez: Strictly Roots, Almost

This write up seems bias and negative. It is what it is. Maybe the stages need to be synced up so good local acts aren't missed. Give Respect to the Roots Families in Reggae and Give Thanks for their presence in Oakland!

Re: “Shelley Short

This type of pick is called a "plectrum" or guitar pick. The left hand holds the neck of the guitar while the fingers pluck the strings. Different finger positions on the fretboard make different notes.

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

And once these ass-hats come down on the guy so do the rest of them. Then it's not just one lisencing fee. From my understanding ASCAP doesn't own rights to all music. So now businesses are left to pay what? 1 or 2 other companies another fee? So Jay-Z and LMAFO can profit? Maybe I'm speaking from ignorance but these folks seem like exporters for self profit and the big artists stay rich. I never hear about how many small less known artists get help from these guys. Correct me if I'm wrong but ASCAP is a bunch of ass-hats coming down on the little guys. You can't play music in a cafe unless you pay these outrageous fees that small business can't afford and then you're out of business when they sue you. if they were keeping big venues in check I could understand that but these guys are being bullies and picking on the little guys.

Having managed a few places I know the rules and this guy hasn't a leg to stand on. He is out and out stealing from these artists for his own personal gain.

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

"We don't like to litigate," said a person who has the word "legal" in his job title. I think ASCAP's case is pretty strong here, but Mr. Wagener is being disingenuous at best with his "Aw shucks, what a shame we had to file several lawsuits" routine. Lawsuits are the reason why ASCAP employs him, and they're clearly a litigious organization. Let's call a spade a spade.

Re: “Oakland's Club 21 Defiant in Copyright Battle

Why is it on the venue to get licensing rights and not the DJ who gets paid to play the songs?

Re: “Double Duchess' Ballroom Blitz

I was at Leo's the night Double Duchess performed and I was completely blown away. I didn't expect such as awesome act to open in a tiny club. They were so fabulous.
