"Before the Music Dies," a new documentary film by Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen, explores how the radio and record industry conspire to limit musical choice by consumers. Meanwhile they examine how independent artists find new fanbases through the internet and live performance. The film includes interviews with such diverse and notable artists as Branford Marsalis, Eryka Badhu, Les Paul, and questlove. On their website you can find out if there is a screening in your town. And if there isn’t you can even host one yourself.
Maybe I could get some folks from the live music or Better World Island folks to host a screening in Second Life. That would be super cool.
