Episode 80: #LMW2016 Musician’s Roundtable

Episode 80: #LMW2016 Musician's Roundtable

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. This is how we wanted to kick off Local Music Week; at 502 Bar, doing our first live podcast! Our speakers for the event were Daniel Magallanez (Blackbird Sing), Patric Farrell (Built For The Future), and Edward Welsh (Rumors) and our sound guy for the show was Joey Devine from 502 Bar. The point of the show was to start a discussion, shed some light on local music, and get some attention for local music. We discussed each individuals trials, tribulations, and celebrations they’ve had as local musicians, what some of their experiences have been, and what they think about the situation. We talk about cover prices, the cost of being a musician, venue location, venue sound, the concert goers, and the talent of the band.

We also took some time to acknowledge the organizations in San Antonio that are available to local musicians; The Local 782, M.U.S.I.C. Project, San Antonio Local Music Guild, San Antonio Sound Garden, and others who help like Do210, The Owlcast, Vinyl Pizza, Texas Music Spotlight, and 210 Local Media. This is just the first of a series of discussions we plan on having as we work towards our mission of helping the local music scene thrive. We hope you join us on this voyage and invite you to also check out the resulting videos on our YouTube channel, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC37uudJJ3iTcEnXISjXKSbA

Episode 66: Built For The Future – Interview

Episode 66: Built For The Future – Interview

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media Podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. First of all, go back and check out Episode 62: Built For The Future RADIO. I’m excited to bring a new genre into the podcast this week; ProgRock! If you’re not savvy, or a millennial, Prog can be exemplified in bands like Yes, Tears For Fears, Genesis, and Muse. Yeah, Muse. Some people characterize it as non-mainstream, super long songs, and experimental in design. By that definition, you can also add bands like Coheed and Cambria, The Mars Volta, and Tool, which many do. Basically, take everything you knew about Prog, or in most cases, didn’t know, and just throw it out the window. As far as myself, and many other do, call it Alternative Rock, even if just for the sake of giving it a listen. It’s largely popular overseas and popularized by the British, but essentially, it’s just music by people who are not Pop.

In this episode, we bring you Built For The Future’s Patric Farrell who discusses his musical history, the journey of making this album, and finally making music with this partner in crime, Kenny Bisset. I also get to ask Patric about BFTF, having done something that local musicians have always wanted to do, in getting their music out to the world. In an extremely brief period of time, they’ve sold out of their initial release and have shipped the album all over the world. You can find them in a Facebook group page, called Built For The Future. With only 298 members, this tight knit group has devoured everything the San Antonio ‘Progsters’ have uploaded. We also discussed the fact that it took a couple of decades for them to accomplish what they couldn’t in their youth and have succeeded in doing what many would consider to be a backwards method. Huge thanks to Patric for letting me interview him and for signing my copy of Built For The Future. Again, go back to Episode 62 and take another listen.

I know the guys will be sharing this on their group page, so; Hello to our overseas friends and new listeners to the podcast. I hope it’s to your liking, and I hope you check out some of the other amazing music San Antonio has to offer. Thanks for listening.
