Happy Labor Day!
Someone recently asked me what Labor Day is all about, I mean before it became the last great weekend of the summer to party and a reason for stores to have massive sales.
The observance of Labor Day goes back over 100 years ago, to a time when labororers were fighting for better working conditions and the opportunity to unionize to be able to make a stronger stand to change conditions. Many voices working together for change is much more powerful then a few voices each making a similar statement on their own.
This seems similar in a lot of respects to the ideals of the newly formed group of people working on NJ Indie Music Fest. As mentioned last week in this newsletter the first NJ Indie Music Fest will take place Saturday October 23rd at Centro Night Club, 2080 Route 35, South Amboy, NJ.
In order to make this show possible, many musicians and business/media outlets (like BlowUpRadio.com), have banded together for the common good of exposing the scene to a larger audience. We may not be trying to change working conditions, but we are trying to change conditions...conditions by which people find out about local music, and more importantly, conditions by which people are able to hear local music.
"Band together, make change", isn't just a statement I put on this site about voting in the upcoming political election, but it's really a mantra for how if we all do band together we can make the scene better, we can make it floruish. We can help promote one another and really make a difference.
Let's all band together, let's all make change!
Happy Labor Day!
