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

I could go on for a very long time about this topic, so if you liked it, please let us know on our Facebook page /210LocalMedia or on Twitter  @210LocalMedia. As always, thanks for listening!

Episode 52: #LMW2015 Mixed Tape Volume 3

Episode 52: #LMW2015 Mixed Tape Volume 3

Thanks for tuning in to 210 Local Media Podcast and the last day of our Local Music Week 2015 episodes.

This will be our last Mixed Tape for the Local Music Week series, but we will keep going mixed tape episodes in the future like we always have. Our first track is Slowlikefire’s “With Envy” from their new album City Of Echoes. These guys are primed for success. With that, for those who are not already following us on social media, you probably don’t know that 210 Local Music, a subsidiary of 210 Local Media, is now an indie record label and artist management company! I’m very excited to share that our first artist signing to our artist management division, is Slowlikefire. Slowlikefire recently signed with El Paso Indie Record label, DKD Records. We’re hoping this will bring more notice to Slowlikefire, DKD Records, and 210 Local Media and everyone we know and love. You can find Slowlikefire on www.slowlikefire.com, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and pretty much all over our 210LocalMedia.com website.

After that, we’re proud to bring you one of my favorite songs from Rumors, “Pillow”. Rumors recently parted ways with their singer and have started auditioning new singers during the last week or so. We here at 210 Local Media believe heavily in Rumors and ex-singer Michael Christopher’s side project, now full time project, You And I Under Water. Keep up with us as we follow both with their progress.

Another of our favorites is Donella Drive, with another single off of their recent EP Anomalous, “Alone With The Devil”. We can’t say enough nice things about this band. They hugged me when we did their interview a couple of months ago, so that’s where the loyalty comes from. Be sure to follow them everywhere as /DonellaDrive or @DonellaDrive.

You heard the second release from the hardest working band in Texas a couple of episodes, but now we”re bringing you The Heroine and a track off of their first full release with, “Ballad Of Lenny King”. Keep up with us and The Heroine, we’re hoping to nail down an interview soon!

Next up, we’ve got our old friends, Hydra Melody and a song from their much anticipated next album. “Honey” has been out for a bit, but the guys are really keeping the new album under wraps. As soon as we hear more, we’ll let you know!

If Hydra Melody had brothers in a different band, they would all be in The Sound Of Curves. We’ve played “Gone Gatsby” for you a few episodes ago, but we wanted to bring you their song “Rumors” today. These guys have a strong pop sensibility and we look forward to hearing more great music from them soon!

I met our next musician at the first Local Music Week meeting and have kept up with her since. We’ve gotten an interview with her ready to go soon, so follow and subscribe so you don’t miss out. San Antonio’s own Merilette recently made a splash with her album release, Mindpaint at Jack’s Patio and has been non-stop since then. Here’s Merilette with her song, “Comfortable Love”.

Our next musician is Storm Calysta with her track, “Hero”. I really think that this track could be on the relaunch of The Never Ending Story, should they ever do one.

Finally, we leave you with a group of amazing musicians, Aliens WITH Halos and their song, “The Source”. We’ve been working on an “In The Studio With” episode and hope to have it out next month. Luckily, you get a little teaser since we’re going to cover this exact track.

This is the last day of local Music Week and you can relive the week on social media if you use #LMW2015 Thanks to Local 782, SATX Music, and Do210 for being the primary organizers behind this years Local Music Week. Check out Do210.com for a very inclusive calendar of events for the local music in San Antonio, Texas. Next year, I’m hoping to not be sick at all and actually make it out to most of the events compared with none this year. Either way, thanks for listening and if I don’t die, we’ll see you here soon!
