“You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
I launched Dfwmusiconline.com in August, 2005. I decided to start up my own e-magazine covering music in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The concept was simple- if I’m going to be rocking out anyway, why not help the musicians I’m going to see by writing about them and providing resources and exposure for them? However, I’m just one man- and there’s only so much I can do. That’s why I’m hoping the concept of rocking-and-reviewing will spread- musicians, music enthusiasts, music industry personnel- if you’re going to be there anyway, why not write a short review of it to be published on the internet? It promotes the event, the venue, businesses/organizations and (most importantly) the musicians. The content does not have to be perfect- it just has to BE. I’ll accept submissions from anyone (any type of submission, for any type of music). If you’ll go to my CD reviews page, you can see the format I use to review CDs and use it as a starting point- you don’t have to use my format, but it may give you some ideas on how to write your own reviews. Also, you may notice that most of my reviews are very positive, and that is because I will be focusing on reviewing the bands that I think are worth reviewing (I’m not one of those assholes that gets off on bashing bands- I love music), but that doesn’t mean I won’t tell you that you suck if you suck.
Peace through music!
