Twice the Work, Half the Pay: Entrepreneurship and Exploitation in the Music Industry

Where: Judson Memorial Church, Assembly Hall, 239 Thompson St., New York

The annual CMJ Music Marathon comes to NYC October 16-20, with panels on the music business promising to “help make sense of the current climate.” But what does it really offer musicians? How does the industry itself, which promotes ideas such as the “super-entrepreneur,” contribute to the difficult conditions musicians face?

Join musicians and other workers deemed “independent” or “entrepreneurial” for a facilitated discussion and strategy session to explore ways we can act together against the systems that keep us isolated and divided.

Read the full announcement and RSVP at the Facebook event.

Afterwards, at 9pm we’ll move from discussion into action — join the Justice for Jazz Artists campaign in Washington Square Park and march to the Blue Note for pension, fair pay scales, and protections of recordings for all musicians who play at the club. Meet under the arch — there will be a live band.

A collaboration between 99 Pickets, the Musicians Solidarity Council, and OWS Arts & Labor.
