Know-Your-Scene-628x334 (1)

It’s time for a brand new episode of Know Your Scene, D.C. Music Download’s podcast where we talk about issues and current events in the local music community.

This month’s show is a deep dive into the logistics of DIY touring, and the tough personal and financial sacrifices bands make when going on the road.

We talked with Ben Schurr, (Blight Records, Pree, Br’er) Nat Brown (Oklahoma Car Crash), and Jay Nemeyer (Color Palette) about what it takes to plan a successful tour as an independent artist.
