Comment Box – Are music festivals a sham?

Posted on: No Comments

Music festivals are fun. Music festivals are expensive (a Glastonbury ticket will run you approximately $340) . In most cases, tickets are sold before the lineup of bands is announced. Is it fair that we’re asked to fork over cash without knowing what bands we’re going to see? More importantly, what are we paying for — the music or the festival experience?

Comment Box – Is Miley Cyrus a feminist?

Posted on: No Comments

In The Independent, Sarah Morrison, asserts that Miley Cyrus has “prompted a modern feminist manifesto.” Cyrus has all but blown up the Internet in the last few months (the Twerk heard round the world, the foam finger, and a certain music video prominently featuring a wrecking ball, to name a few).

She’s also been the recipient of an open letter from Sinead O’Connor warning her against prostituting herself to the music industry.

Miley’s response to Sinead’s criticism was, in addition to twitter feuds, to say, “I am one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women not to be scared of anything.”

As we all know, feminism in pop culture is an incredibly nuanced and complex concept. It’s also a very important concept to discuss, and so  our goal at Comment Box is to discuss this particular story – is Miley Cyrus and feminism in pop music? – by taking a closer look at online comments, in studio discussion, and hear from everyday people on the street. Let’s start with the online comment.”

Comment Box – Spotify Payments

Posted on: 1 Comment

Streaming services like Spotify and Pandora have popularized a new era in music. You don’t need to own music to legally access music. How does this relatively new music source impact the artists pocketbook? In short, how do artists get paid, and how much?
