The decks are on their way! Deck the halls?

Interesting news the other day about Kristen Hersh, musician who fronted Throwing Muses, now rockin' as 50 Foot Wave, and becoming a music revolutionary. She has come to take the free music for donations approach that Radiohead did just a few weeks ago, creating a movement called the CASH Music Project, aka the Coalition of Artists and Stake Holders. I think we will be seeing a lot more of this happening. My opinion is that offering music for free will free the music. Musicians still need to eat, usually, pay the rent/mortgage, and so on. Unfortunately, we must leave this as an exercise for the reader... Robert Fripp recommends that musicians take up something like plumbing. I don't think I would hire myself as a plumber.

Check out Kristen HERE.
