News You Can Use Week of 4/28

In our weekly series, BandsOnABudget.com goes through the dregs to bring you the best in DIY focused news, tips, and advice on the topics of touring, marketing, promoting, social media, PR, & more.

1. Do Traditional Tours Still Make Sense For Independent Artists?

DIY Musician’s guest contributor Jason Schellhardt of Rukkus is taking the position that booking cross-country tours no longer makes sense for newer independent artists. With the internet, finding where your market is located is becoming easier. He gives some tips of targeting your preferred market also. Do you agree with his thinking of touring not making sense for newer artists?

2. Cato Music Launches Roadie School, PledgeMusic Offers Tech Music School Scholarship

If we have any readers in the UK, this is specifically for you. Cato Music has now launched an official Touring Academy at their London headquarters that focuses on tour management, production management, and training for backline technicians. In another part of London, PledgeMusic announced a new scholarship for Tech Music School London’s Music Business Degree. Now it’s time to make these things all over the world!

3. 5 Money Management Tips of Indie Musicians

There are a lot of article on how to make more money as an indie musician, but not what to do with that money once you get it. If you’re still handling your own money, let Music Think Tank help you with these five tips to getting more organized with your money!

4. Liberating The Introverted Performing Artist

Everyone gets stage fright, and that probably includes you. James Wasem from Gigee.me gives advice of how to overcome this by making you and or your band the most comfortable they can be while allowing fans to be wherever they want. And people think the internet is evil.

5. Justin Bieber May Be A Jerk, Again

Justin Bieber released artwork for his single “We Were Born For This,” but it looks oddly similar to a fan edit a fan made for a Paramore song “Born For This.” It is unknown whether Bieber paid for the artwork, but would it surprise anyone if he didn’t?

And the witch starved to death, but she kinda deserved it. The cabin was made of Neil Diamond albums.
