Point - Counterpoint: The $100k "Indie" Band

Point: TIME Magazine: Want to be a Rock Star? You'll need $100k...

Counterpoint: Lefsetz (and readers): Bullshit.

One interesting comment via iblogwhatihear:
But I feel like the backlash has been equally awkward — it’s all self righteous band dudes talking about their DIY cred acting like they’re fucking Fugazi or something. I’M THE REAL FACE OF A STRUGGLING MUSICIAN, NO ONE HELPS ME OUT, I BOUGHT MY FIRST BASS WHEN I WAS NINE YEARS OLD BY DIGGING THROUGH THE DUMPSTER OUTSIDE MY ORPHANAGE AND HUSTLING SPARE METAL OFF THE TURNPIKE. I LEARNED TO SING FROM “BLIND” SPLINTER MCGEE IN AN ABANDONED SILO OUTSIDE OF BATON ROUGE. WHAT THE FUCK IS A “PARENT”?
