    #71 Live Shows-Your opinion
    There's always plenty of discussion about the health of live music and its venues. Any town's music scene will have some ebb and flow, certainly. I asked folks on Facebook and Instagram to opine about what makes them decide to go or not go to a live show. Is it venue? Start time? End time? Price? The acts themselves? Quality of publicity?

    Mumcast 61 "The Good Life" with John Bower/Brandon Reed
    The last time we spoke to John Bower on this podcast, we talked about the hard grind that is a career in music. Those careers often include full-time side jobs, bad gigs, math-challenged club owners, sketchy promoters, and more. Now, John is seeing the culmination of all that hard work.

    Post #1: WHY ARE WE HERE, ANYWAY?
    I guess I'm challenging myself with such a deep topic for my inaugural post. I choose the question because it dovetails nicely with my mission to tease out the motivations and inspirations from creative people. Why do they create? Why must they create? Many creatives with whom I've spoken tell me that making their art is as central to their existence as breathing and eating (for many artists, creating may be more important than eating, since eating requires what many artists find to be in short
