Jack Conte, from the company Patreon and band Pomplamoose, talks about the intersection of independent art and money in a recent interview.
As an independent artist, it’s really unfortunate that people think art and money are different things and should never be joined—that art lives in this perfect vacuum, unaffected and unchanged by money. That has never been the case; it’s not the case now. Money funds everything. I don’t care if you’re a tech startup; I don’t care if you have an … [electric] bill to pay; I don’t a care if you’re an artist. If there’s no green, it’s not going to work.

Noisey has debuted the first part of their documentary looking at Fat Mike's upcoming musical. You can view the video in the replies.
In an unlikely pairing, NOFX's Fat Mike and his fiancée Soma Snakeoil have teamed up with 'Avenue Q' creator Jeff Marx to create a musical called 'Home Street Home.' As the three work to appeal to a mainstream audience, they are fighting to keep as much BDSM filth and punk rock themes in it as possible

"Our attorneys are in the process of us exiting the label," Dawkins said, with the band’s manager Alan Sacks and his partner Kevin Jonas Sr. (the team behind the Jonas Brothers) sitting nearby. The reason? "Just complications," Dawkins said.

I recently spoke with vocalist Chris Motionless of Motionless In White as part of their headlining tour. We spoke about the tour, their current record Reincarnate, and their upcoming tour with Slipknot this summer. You can read the interview here.
I think music is more of a therapeutic element to overcoming your problems, and at the end of the day it's you doing it. If we're helping you out, great, I'm glad that music in general can do that, because it's helped me, I've gotten over many things.

Andrew McMahon talks about closing the Jacks Mannequin chapter of his career on Already Heard.
It’s been great. It’s an interesting thing that I’ve always been one to hit the reset button when I felt that things were getting a little stale, or I needed some new inspiration. It gets a little bit more nerve-wracking when you get a bit older to hit that reset button because you don’t want to fuck up and have to claw your way back. But that said I feel it was such a worthy endeavour because it gave me the chance to really dig back into playing my piano. I think by the last Jack’s Mannequin record, I’d scaled back the piano so much. I really wanted to sit and focus and write great piano...

Paul Adler, writing over at Medium, has posted a piece looking at the sexual violence that has occured at Warped Tour.
But over the past half-decade, a handful of alt-scene, so-called “Warped Tour” bands have found themselves accused of sexual misconduct with minors. Musicians have been convicted of crimes, and other bands have been condemned for their apparent advocacy of physical and sexual violence, especially toward women. Of course, the bands and the tour are separate entities, and Warped isn’t legally responsible (moral responsibility is another matter) for the actions of its acts. Nonetheless, it’s tempting to let these scandals color the general perception of the tour. More...

American-French artist Allyson Ezell may not be a household name yet, but I have a feeling that's going to change very soon. With an indie pop style that brings to mind the likes of St. Vincent, Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Bjork, her new EP, The Ease of Remembering Sparks, is bound to gain a lot of attention. Head to the replies to hear it for yourself. The EP - the first in a trilogy that explores the shadows of the past - will be released on March 23rd via Universal Publishing.
