210 Local Media Magazine – Issue 3 Vol 1

Yay, it’s an Editorial! – Issue 3 Vol 1

I started the 210 Local Media Podcast
after purchasing my first iPhone back in 2013, and discovering the Stuff You Should Know Podcast, Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, and several podcasts about podcasting. I noticed that each show either had information to share, or a special type of bond with peaople that they shared, and that the form, really was like no other. I quickly became inspired to mix my love of local music, with the newfound awesomeness of podcasting. At the time, there were only a couple of San Antonio Podcasts; The Unavoidable Drudge, and The BoozedCast (both have podfaded for now). Admittedly, my first few episodes were plagued with sound issues, crazy podcasting scheduling, and finding people that were available and wanting to be interviewed.

Since then, we’ve been able to play mixed tape episodes, interviews, and entire albums on the podcast, put on two benefit shows, and helped to raise over $12,000 for a friend with cancer (In remission!). Since then, more local podcasts are popping up everywhere; The Owlcast, She’s Crafty, It’s a Guy Thing Podcast, Geek Culture, Vinyl Pizza, and Texas Music Spotlight, to name a few. So, here we are, and I’m taking advantage of being the guy that says what each issue can/should have. Check out the spread on the local podcasts, and the Alamo City Podcast Network we created to help each other out and gain a much larger footpring in the process.
Thanks for reading, listening, and supporting! – Issue 3 Vol 1

Episode 81: Aaron Stephens – Hard Times, Straight Lines RADIO

Episode 81: Aaron Stephens – Hard Times, Straight Lines RADIO

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. I’ve been holding on to this album for a while and finally decided it was time to put this out. With all of the plans I had made for episodes prior to this, I hadn’t gotten to this RADIO episode. So, without further ado, this is Aaron Stephens, a transplant from Illinois and most recently, New Braunfels, our northern neighbor.

Aaron’s really got a soulful record here, so if you’re into listening to music in the dark, with your eyes closed, do it. If you’re in your car, you have an excuse to listen to the episode twice. Let the music take you through your own memories and feel the words. Just a suggestion in this world of hustle and bustle and no time to experience music on the same levels we did when we were kids.

BIO:
Aaron Stephens is a soul singer/songwriter and musician born in Illinois, raised deep down in McAllen, Texas.

Writing songs, singing, and playing guitar since the age of 12, Stephens has an original songwriting and performing style that can both soothe and stir.

Since 2012, Stephens has been playing shows all across Texas.

With his soulful voice, songwriting, and tasteful slide guitar playing, Aaron Stephens and his tight, groove-based band are standing out and gaining some momentum.

On June 18, 2014, Aaron Stephens released his first full-length album entitled “Hard Times Straight Lines”. The 9-song album is a perfect example of Aaron Stephens' music: honest, relatable and soulful.

The album is available on all major online platforms.

FREDSTOCK 2016

“FREDSTOCK, to you it’s a concert. To us, it’s a final exam.”

San Antonio, TX – Friday, April 29th is the date set for the Annual Fredstock Music Festival to be held at San Antonio College (SAC). The music festival is a chance for Music Business students to get hands-on learning of every aspect of putting together a music showcase. Festival organizer Donnie Meals, who is also the Music Business Program Coordinator and faculty at SAC, says, “Fredstock is hands-on training. It’s part of the process that our students will be doing out there in the industry.” The students get to perform music business roles from booking the bands and vendors to preparing stage logistics and creating festival promotions.

Every annual festival brings in an array of music fans to hear different performing bands and walk through the sponsored booths of art and crafts, community business sponsors, vendors and food trucks. This free event features popular local and regional talent. Headlining this year is Javier Escovedo, The Hickoids, Benny Harp and Anthony Wright with DJ Gibb spinning cool vinyl between acts. The first band performs at 5:00PM and the event will run until 10:00PM. It will be held on the San Antonio College campus at the Longwith Radio-TV-Film Bldg. in the parking lot at the corner of Courtland Place & N. Main Avenue.

Fredstock 2016 is also simulcast in its entirety on KSYM 90.1 FM.

Please visit www.FredStockSATX.com for more festival information and sponsorship details.

ABOUT FREDSTOCK

Fredstock is named for Fred Weiss, who headed the Music Business Program at San Antonio College (SAC). A professor in the Radio/TV/Film program at SAC for more than 20 years, Weiss passed away in 2008. Money raised from Fredstock will directly benefit the Music Business Program.

SAC Music Business students learn every aspect of putting together a music showcase. The MUSB students see direct results from the work they have done. Music Business Program classes including Live Music and Talent Management, Audio Production 3, Legal Aspects in the Entertainment Industry, Music Publishing, Concert Promotion and Venue Management and Survey of the Music Business. All these work together to form hands-on and how-to skills to produce a successful community-wide music festival.

Episode 75: Heather Go Psycho Radio – Favorite Record

Episode 75: Heather Go Psycho Radio – Favorite Record

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. I’ve been meaning to have Heather Go Psycho’s album Favorite Record on the show for a very long time. I’ve seen the girls a couple of times, but due to the circumstances of the night, was unable to introduce myself to them or anything. Luckily, thanks to Twitter, I was able to chat with Heather Go Psycho’s bassist, Diana. Here’s an update for those who haven’t heard yet, Diana is no longer the bands drummer. They’ve recently added an actual Heather to the line up! Kind of like when Donella Drive had Ella. I saw Heather Go Psycho, most recently at one of the Creative Creatures shows at Fitzgerald’s. They played right after The Black Market Club and before The Lost Project and The Sandworms. They put on a great show and brought a totally different vibe to that stage. I’m glad to finally add them as alumni to the 210 Local Media Podcast. First, we’ll dive into some music, and then I wanted to chat for a little bit.

Heather Go Psycho – Favorite Record
Favorite Record
Nothing More
Just For Tonight
Back 2 You
Nice Girls Finish Last
This Christmas

I just wanted to reach out to music fans, concert goers, and ask some questions of you all and share some insight that you may not hear everywhere. First, some information on the music industry I’ve learned. I admit though, that I am by no means a expert and am learning new things every day, so, be aware of that caveat. There are bands, solo artists, fans, talent buyers, venues, promoters, managers, labels, and there’s merch, distribution, contracts, emails, social media, draw, booking, and a whole slew of other things that have an impact in the music industry. There’s an interesting cycle that regular concertgoers don’t ever see, that includes all of the above. Once you’re walking up to the door of a venue, many things have happened to get what you’re about to see, to where it is at that very second. A band who has practiced countless hours, has either been approached by another band, a venue, a talent buyer (someone who works for the venue to books shows), or a promoter (someone who puts shows together with a secured date at the venue), or has reached out themselves, to play that night. Depending on the show, bands can get paid in many different ways. There’s the door split, in which each band is coming away with their equal cut of the money paid at the door. There’s the percentage of the bar, which usually denotes a free show, where the bands try and get as many people as possible in to the venue to drink, in the hopes that the percentage of the bar that they get paid from is decent. It’s also split with the other band(s) on the bill, and is usually around 10%-15% of the bar. That means, every dollar you spend, gets them $.10 to $.15. There’s the sought after guarantee, where a band can make (at least) their guaranteed amount. Sometimes this is a method of payment that works as an either/or with a guarantee. For example, the guarantee is either $100 or 15% of the bar, whichever is higher. Finally, there’s the pay-to-play or ticket selling method. There are so many variations of these methods, that I won’t go over them here, but feel free to look it up online. For a band to get onto a bill, they either need to know another band that will add them to their own show, make some contacts, have their booking agent (who gets a share of the bands cut from the gig), know a promoter (who’s take is also a portion of the night), or they sell tickets to get on the bill with national acts. There may or may not have been contracts, personnel changes, schedule changes at work to be sure all band members could make the show, band cancellations, or possibly even entire show cancellations…. All before you step foot into the venue. Also, I can’t forget the merch that the bands made to sell at the show, or the money that went into printing handbills or designing digital flyers. Does the sound guy get paid by the venue, by the bands, or the promoter? Does the venue have lights, are they programmed by the sound guy, or are they able to be matched up with the sounds of the bands, or does only the headliner get lights? What are the drink specials? Will the venue allow underage band members inside? How much did each member spend on their instruments and gear? Did they ever have any lost/stolen and have had to replace it before? Did people forget to RSVP on Facebook and spook the venue, booker, or promoter into canceling the show? All of this before the show starts. Once you get inside, the door person asks for ID and which band you’re there to see. Why do they do that? Because your numbers count if the band gets paid per head in the door. Because the venue owner, promoter, talent buyer, or other bands on the bill want to see what your draw is. That is, how many people can you get out to your shows. So, here’s a scenario; The Rockers decide that they want to play at X Bar on Friday or Saturday. How much will they get paid if it’s per head, at $1 a head, and only 10 people came out? They get $10. Did they sell any merch? Did they give any away or offer discounts? Was the show free and they got a percentage of the bar? Did you buy a drink? Did they have to pay for a booker or artist manager? How much was gas? Did the guitarist bust a string? If so, a full set is usually about $10. Did any band members spend money at the bar? In case you haven’t noticed, this scenario makes it very difficult for a band to become successful playing shows. Sometimes, bookers, venues, talent buyers, or promoters don’t pay the bands anyway if they bar barely made anything, nobody came out to the show, or the band just doesn’t have a good draw. Scenario two: The Roller Band wants to play at Y Venue because their favorite national touring band is in town, The Headliners. (I said I wasn’t going to tackle this, but here we go) The promoter says, we’d love to have you play at the show. Here’s 20-30 tickets, at $10 – $20 a ticket for you to sell to get on the bill! Those who sell all their tickets first, get to pick when they play for the night. The show starts at 8pm and ends at 2am the next day. If you don’t sell all your tickets before showtime, then you’ve got an option. You can bring us back the tickets you didn’t sell and the cash for those you did, or you can buy out what you didn’t sell so you can still at least be on the bill. That is called Pay To Play. That happens way more than you’d think. As a promoter, I can kinda see why it happens. Scenario three goes over that part. Scenario three: A headliner is in town and a promoter puts a local band on the bill. The Locals don’t have to sell any tickets or make flyers, or reach out on social media. The night of the show is here, and there’s 12 people in the audience for the show. The Locals didn’t bring anyone out. The promoter promised the headliner a $100-$800 guarantee (that could be much higher, depending on the band). So, the promoter looses money and has to pay the band anyway, because contracts are contracts. If all of this isn’t frustrating, I don’t know what is. So, the final scenario: Every band on the bill brings about 30-60 people each, the bar makes a ton of money, the bands split a nice amount, and you enjoyed some great music. By the way, I have to say that I disagree with Pay to Play.
Here’s a final thought. Ten years ago, $5 was what you paid to hear some live music. Today you still pay $5. Ten years ago, you paid $6 to see a movie. Now, you pay almost double. Why hasn’t what we pay to see live music kept up with the times?

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. We’re continuing with the next group of 210 Local Media’s Top 100 songs.

By and large though, we’ve got the bulk of it here. Thanks to all of the musicians that have made this podcast possible, thanks to those who have made getting a hold of music, releases, or promo stuff easy, and thanks to YOU, the listener, for continuing to listen and make me feel that this is a worthwhile venture. I hope to accomplish a lot more in 2016, and I hope you enjoy my top 100 local songs.

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media podcast, I am your host, Mario Zamarron. This episode, we delve into a new genre (interview wise), Hardcore. Our friends in Covina, Julian, Nate, and Joey, came by to discuss how they came to be, what got them here, and what the difference is between Metalcore, Hardcore. After the interview, stay tuned for the bands' first 3 songs on their self-titled EP, Covina. One thing I love about this podcast, is that when I interview people, it’s a great equalizer. Everyone is always super nice, down to earth, and generally hilarious to talk to. These guys are no exception.
