I don’t get what everyone’s problem is with this. Joyce Manor mentioned on this tour alone multiple people have gotten seriously hurt at their shows. Is it not reasonable to ask people to respect one another? Are you a level of moron where you can’t consider the well being of other people around you?
Anonymous said: hello! was wondering: how did you get started with writing for publications? at what point did you go from 'i want to do this' to 'i will do this' and how did you cross over the threshold? appreciate & admire your perspective & work :)
I applied for an internship with Performer Magazine the summer before my junior year of college and started writing my first album reviews & show recaps that fall. It was a pretty hands-off experience — I lived in Chicago, Performer’s based in Massachusetts — but it was a print magazine so getting into shows and getting promos/interviews with local bands was easy. When the internship fizzled I started writing for a local music blog for my last year of school, and then once I graduated I started freelancing pseudonymously for this experimental content network that paid horribly and had zero editorial oversight.
It wasn’t until I started writing for Consequence of Sound (I cold pitched myself and they took me on as a staff writer almost 2 years ago now) that I felt that writing about music was something I could do as a career and not just a side gig. I met wonderful people who took an active interest in my work and encouraged me to get better at it — something I’d never encountered in the low-paying blog ranks. From there I eventually got the courage to pitch other publications, where I met more wonderful editors who kept me going.
I don’t know if there was ever a hard line between “I want to do this” and “I will”. A year ago I still didn’t think I would ever be able to work this as my main gig. But I got through my fear of pitching, and I made friends through Twitter who have been incredibly supportive, and eventually the whole thing added up to something like a job.
Sasha is one of my favorites.
