What’s in it for me? Supporting local?
When you support local music, it’s the same as supporting your local business. The only difference is with the arts, one hopes that the artist can expand beyond the reaches of their home town or community. So what’s stopping you from spending $9.99 and buying the album on ITUNES? I’m sure people spend way more than that on beer, food, coffee, cigarettes, and other things…..this is a tiny investment in something local with a giant return. You’re doing your part to help make something small become something huge. So if you haven’t already, buy the album, or just a couple songs off ITUNES or come see us play at a show and tell your friends? I mean, don’t you want to say you knew someone before they got famous?
