Episode 27 – Preserving Local Music

Colin Kendrick and Matt Ott from Black Fret

In this episode, we bring Black Fret to the studio. Black Fret is an organization restoring value in the music community by providing meaningful membership to local music fans. They currently operate in Austin, the Live Music Capital of the world, but look to expand the model to other cities. As a member, you get access to around 40 private concerts a year culminating in a yearly gala where grants are awarded based on membership votes. Grants for the artists are unlocked when they complete actions such as dropping an album, playing shows, or writing a new song. This creates a robust collection of metrics around Black Fret’s meaningful work in the community. Take a trip into the local music scene by listening now!
