With an evolving trend of “breaking the convention”, we are always on the cusp of change, where possibilities are boundless. Never before has it been so viable for communities to equally contribute towards change and made to feel like everyone involved has a stake in something they value greatly. Music has been a rather integral element in all our lives, essentially because of how it impacts the way we choose to perceive our immediate reality.
Music has the power to bring people together and it all starts with you.
A dire need for us to create our very own social infrastructure in the age of social media is upon us, and music finds its place in being able to enable that need. “Unplugging” is a common trend today – especially in commercial contexts, where the challenge is to take one’s online accumulations into the real world – and what better way to do that as a music fan than to bring the music on your phone to your living room! Hosting music on your premises not only provides your local musicians with a platform but also creates and encourages a close-knit sense of community in your local scene. It not only gives you an opportunity to involve yourself with something you absolutely love but also gives you the power to act as a catalyst for change. Utilizing your space for something as euphoric as live music comes with immeasurable rewards and the satisfaction of having been instrumental in successfully creating a social infrastructure that is tangible.
An interesting fact is that most touring musicians are on the lookout for non-traditional ways to perform, and experts in the music business are more than willing to collaborate with you as a host. As such, potential local hosts such as yourself now have more opportunity than ever to work with industry veterans who can bring their expertise into every aspect of a show, from set up to clean up, leaving you to eventually settle into a more comfortably managerial role. If your love for music is infectious, it’s your chance to contribute today.
