Documentary about the State of Music in America

Before The Music Dies

Before The Music Dies is a new documentary about the state of music and the music industry in America. Through interviews with musicians, industry insiders, music critics, and fans, and performances by artists from The Dave Matthews Band and Erykah Badu to Seattle street performers and Mississippi gospel singers, the filmmakers try to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong with music.

Focusing on grassroots, word-of-mouth advertising, the filmmakers are promoting their movie by encouraging people to host a screening party. By giving away dvds to people wanting to host a screening party, the want to get hardcore music fans and their friends together to discuss the music, the industry, and the politics of it all, and hopefully, to inspire them to get involved.

Go to a screening of Before The Music Dies in your area, or host one yourself. Or send me an email, and watch Before The Music Dies with me this weekend.

This movie is really well worth seeing!!!

The RIAA should quit picking on Internet users, and watch this movie. They might realize that their problems are the result of several poor strategies, and not file-sharing.
