Long Live Local Music!
The Recording Academy SF Chapter, aka the people who do the Grammys, have launched a campaign to support local music. And the scene needs all the help it can get; in the past few years, there has been a lot of financial badnessÂ facing the Bay Area entertainment industry along with other issues thatÂ San FranciscoÂ Magazine referred to asÂ ”San Francisco’s war on fun.”Â The idea of venues closing and SF possibly losing its foothold in the music landscape is really disheartening.And so, the Recording AcademyÂ SF Chapter, in partnership with San Francisco State University, has commissioned an entertainment industry economic impact study.
I know numbers and reality aren’t a typical, fun filled Owl post, but yo, it’s rad that some real work is being put in for solutions. The findings of the study will be presentedÂ at a San Francisco Supervisor Candidates ForumÂ on Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, 6 â€“ 9 p.m., at Yoshi’s San FranciscoÂ (1330 Fillmore Street).
