We have a vendetta to quell cell-phone cameras and non-stop talkers at shows, but another underlying message we sometimes don’t vocalize loudly enough is to support the artists. A recent blog post at NPR and rebuttal by a musician are making the rounds on Facebook and Twitter sparking discussion on the notion of music ownership and what is “stealing” music.
This is the digital age. What constitutes ownership or is it all “Free Culture” once sent up into the ether of the cloud?
We jumped at the chance to sit down with Dave Lovering, drummer for The Pixies, prior to their trip to Austin. I chatted him up about his magic career, touring and, well, just about everything in between. Thanks so much to Dave for the opportunity; your graciousness is much appreciated. Follow the jump for full interview.
Head out to the Mohawk on Thursday night for some solid country style rockin’ with a show featuring Cracker and old ATH fave Clem Snide. Stick around when the headliners finish up for another show inside by locals Lemurs and Givers. Kick off the weekend right with a night of action packed music.
