Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Now hold up. I hear the music scene is bad, mostly because there aren't enough venues willing to support local musicians. BUT Lyz, the main person putting this together is running a scam. She is playing off the musicians in the SF Scene. She is loaded, and could afford to pay everyone if she really meant to do something good. Instead she has a bunch of bands working for free, or for nearly nothing, while she makes money off this.
Support the music scene, yes. I belive whole heartedly in doing that. But, what we have here is a little rich kid playing fast and loose with the music scene. You are here play toy, until she gets bored I suppose.
A better showcase of the SF Music Scene would be YOU making your own kind of music. Quoting the Mama's and the Papa's! And then figuring out the hows and whys of what it takes to create a movement. Your music, or anybody's for that matter, only works when you leave people moved, touched and inspired. You aren't doing that by playing someone else's stuff.
I won't go into any personal attacks, as some would frown upon that. But for those of you who work hard and want your material to be appreciated you are making a big mistake. Those of us in the music scene are watching this. Anyone who signs up for this, can just go right ahead and hope something will come of it. We won't help you if you continue being used in this way. The way we see it, you will have chosen your path and you should keep right on going with it. Why should we help you? You are signing up with someone who is only interested in getting their ya, ya's at your expense. If you are going to be a dup, then we can't see any reason to suit up and help you.
