    Another Blow To Local Music

    I'm a musician and was looking for a new place to play in town. (I'm also a songwriter.) Music is my jobby (extra job and hobby) So I go to a new small locally owned coffee house and ask if they are interested in live music. The owner proceeds to tell me this horror story about these goons who tried to strong arm her for license fees (ASCAP) the amount was so exorbitant that she just decided it wasn't worth it. I am so angry... who do these people think they are? They are ****holes. If it was up to them there would be no music except that crap they market. Off with their heads!

    ASCAP / BMI Shakedown

    A great local coffee house stopped having music because they were strong armed by these jackals. these folks came and told them pay up or else.... so they stopped having local music. What jerks.
