"Today, in the age of Facebook, Google and Amazon, it's hard to tell how a new and growing musical artist could make it in the way we did," Young wrote. "The Tech Giants have figured out a way to use all the great music of everyone from all time, without reporting an artist's number of plays or paying a f--king cent to the musicians. Aren't they great companies!!! It makes you wonder where the next generation of artists will come from. How will they survive?"

It's never the artist's or the industry's fault.  First it was the cassette recorder, then Napster, then it was the CD-ROM and iTunes, youtube, Facebook, Amazon....

The industry had Shawn Fanning and Napster offering up the future on a platter and the artists and the industry fought it.  Figure out how to get on board and be part of the future, because the past is dead.

glad to hear they are doing this...kinda like the 3 bands 3 bucks era (inflation...so it's now 3 bands for 3 $5 bills)
don't love the name 'homebrew'  but at least they are trying to cultivate local talent

All great bands start somewhere, and we want that somewhere to be right here at 9:30 Club. That's why we're presenting HomeBrew - a new series of shows carefully curated to pay homage to the local/DIY music that we love - all with the simple goal of giving the stage to the great bands that deserve it. The inaugural HomeBrew, this Friday at 9:30, features experimental alt-rockers Maneka, melodic indie-rockers Bleary Eyed, droney guitar lords Tosser, and a set from DJ Franzia to cap things off. Don’t miss your chance to sample treats from these budding D.C.-area artists. Indulge in the first HomeBrew – regret it you will not.

Bronx and Mariachi el Bronx drummer Jorma Vik called out Warped headlining act, Black Veil Brides for using potemkin (i.e. fake) amplifiers during their set

edit...this was from 5 years ago

"We use staging in our stage show. Also these are tattoos, I wasn't born with the batman logo on my arm."

AKA "no shit sherlock".  every band with a wall of speaker cabinets behind them is using them as stage props.  even *if* they are real Marshall cabs, with actual speakers inside them, they aren't plugged in and powered by an amp - but generally they're pure props.  having an wall of actually plugged-in stacks makes no sense technically, musically, logistically nor financially.  this article is the equivalent of "exposing" the lip-syncing of boy-bands or pop-tarts. 

that being said, i shit on this band for not even slapping some black-painted particle board across the back of those fake cabs.  that's just sloppy.  amateurs.

this I did not know...I can see in a stadium why a bunch of marshal stacks wouldn't really work
but at the club when bands have a stack behind them...are they always fake

Want to say it was sonic youth..and I feel like it was intentional...but their amps said marsha

Van Halen, The Who, Neil Young, Grateful Dead... just a few of the many many bands that use or have used fake amps as part of their stage show. I remember seeing Green Day torch a couple of empty cabinets at the end of their Warped Tour show. This is such a non-story. Jorma Vik comes off as a bit of a douche.

Please tune-in to Forbidden Alliance radio on Sunday July 22, 2018 at 9AM on WOWD 94.3 FM. In honor of my interview guest, I'll play all 70s-80s punk rock songs from 9:00-10:30AM.

Then from 10:30-12:00 we will interview Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, the Evens, & Dischord Records). Ian will discuss what influenced him to become a musician & label owner, and play his favorite songs.

In the picture below you see Ian, Skip Groff (Yesterday And Today Records, where Ian worked when he was in high school) & Henry Rollins. You can listen online at takomaradio.org (Takoma Radio)
