    At this very moment in time I’m listening to M83, the album “Saturdays = Youth” and enjoying the ethereal sounds. It’s a very smoothe album.

    This bar is great, despite the terrifying neighborhood. It’s vital that you go on the right night though. Otherwise you may end up hearing a D.J. who has one sample he uses in every song for 2 and a 1/2 hours.

    right…
    so go on Mondays.
    Roger Moore would be there too…

    The real question is would Sean Connery or Daniel Craig go there?

    I’m sorry, but no, it’s not possible to write a “good” song “no one” will like. You can think it’s the best song ever and everyone else thinks it’s shit (see countless unsigned acts touring the world today), but all you’ve done is written a song YOU like. To be “good” it generally implies timelessness, a universal approval of content and musicality. Not acknowledging that is simply ignorant.

    Not true. History of music/art is paved with forgotten talent. Besides, we’re not talking about how well someone can play Ravel’s concerto in G are we?

    Classical music reference. Love It! Wish I would have thought of it.

    I would rather play music I love in front of 10 people than music I hate in front of 10,000. But, I would REALLY rather play music I love in front of 10,000 people. ;-)

    That is nicely put sir.

    what are we even talking about at this point? tallgirl helps book bands for the Independents Day fest, and chances are that if you don’t play good songs that lots of people like, then you probably aren’t gonna get in. listen to the bands that were selected for the last two years, and there’s nary a Nickelback soundalike among them. lots of talent and diversity present though.

    This is pretty sad that I have to explain this to you. I didn’t say Independents Day was loaded with Nickelback soundalikes. My point was if every band did what everyone else liked, then we’d be bombarded with mediocre music that was more concerned with money and pleasing the masses than making something real and honest. I’m critiquing one comment.

    I think bands that are immensely talented, and market themselves well, will find their audience, and make music that they love, and that other people love, and will make lots of money. Why this all needs to be seen as a mutually exclusive arrangement is beyond me.

    This is pretty naive. Does this mean that every band that is immensely talented and markets themselves well will be successful? Is that what your saying? It’s a complete load of shit if you think that. I’ve known many people in many bands with extraordinary talents that for unexplainable reasons couldn’t get it to work out. You act like marketing is what makes it happen. It’s number of variables, some foreseeable, some not.

    Also, I don’t think you know how to read.

    I should have said “people” won’t like, instead of “no one”. (Apologies)

    I’M sorry, but do you currently listen to every band on Myspace? Didn’t think so. Yes, there are a lot of terrible bands out there but there are also a tremendous amount of unknown bands (some that prefer to be that way) that write amazing music.

    Your basically saying that if a song is great, people will like it. But what if they never hear it? If your argument was true then saying “every band I could like I’ve already heard of” would be a true statement.

    People think good music finds you all the time. It’s pretty rare. I have to scour the internet to find good music, or trust friends with good taste.

    I thought the INDEPENDENCE FESTIVAL was going to take the COM-FEST’s shine,….but what do you know….they had the same fucking bands at the INDEPENDENCE FESTIVAL.

    It’s not rocket science. Write good songs that the majority of people will like, get involved and the rest will follow.
    .

    I agree with most of tall girl’s points but “write good songs that the majority of people want to hear”. I’m sorry but this is the worst thing that any artistic person could possibly do. It kind of makes me throw up in my mouth a bit. You could rewrite that and say “just sound like Nickelback and you’ll play festivals” or “you should follow trends constantly” or “an artist should only concern him or herself with other people’s opinions instead of their own”. If we followed this advice we’d all be boring people and terrible musicians.

    Well no one said you had to write shitty songs for people to like them. You could always try the opposite of tallgirl’s advice and “write bad songs that nobody wants to hear” and see how that works for you.

    She said “The Majority” of people, not all. You can still write good songs that no one will like.
