Interview with Bandcamp regarding the jazz scene in Boston.
“Guitarist Magdalena Abrego agrees, although she notes that the problem isn’t unique to Boston. ‘Finding venues is a problem facing artists in cities throughout the United States,’ she says. ‘It really feels like they are closing faster than they are opening. Plus, since the pay-to-play model has become standard, there is the prohibitive cost of room rental fees. It’s frustrating, because I think Boston is a city full of interesting spaces that represent a new concept of music venue. But it can be hard to pitch your weird avant-jazz noise to the trendy brewery down the street.'” –from daily.bandcamp.com
