A new start-up called "TapTape" launched recently. It promises to allow you to "invest" in musical artists. I'm going to time travel, Back to the Future almanac style, and put money down on Fall Out Boy while shorting the hell out of a few others.
As the artist's success grows, you automatically earn TapCoins. Use them to buy merch, tickets, Amazon credit -or reinvest them in the next artist. Move up the leaderboard and prove you know how to spot talent.

Aaron Melzer has parted ways with Secrets.
Hey guys, we are sad to say Aaron is no longer a part of the band. He has been an awesome member and an amazing friend, but we understand and respect his decision to be home with his family and start a new path. With that being said, we are very excited to announce his replacement, Wade Walters, who recorded our new album with us. Wade will be joining us on our tour with The Amity Affliction this fall and is very excited to meet all of you. We will be releasing a new song shortly along with more info on our new album. Thank you all so much for your support, canít wait to show you what weíve been working on!

Matt Pond PA recently blogged that he is in a "full on brawl" with Doghouse Records and that he will "never see a dime" from his newest album.
These will be our last shows for the foreseeable future. Our problems are insignificant in the grand scheme and Iíve tried to subdue most of thefires in my life privately. But weíre in a full-on brawl with our label, Doghouse. I will never see a dime from The State Of Gold. They would rather have us fail than succeed with anything in our lives.

Haim are throwing around the idea of doing their own version of a "Lilith Fair."
We talk about this all the time, how there arenít enough female-represented bands and artists at festivals. You donít see them. And itís really sad for us. We came up with the idea basically of why canít we just bring back a festival thatís just ladies. Not that we donít love the boysÖ I did see Melissa Ethridge in concert, I saw Sarah McLachlan in concert, I saw Paula Cole in concert, and Sheryl Crowe. All these amazing ladies had such an amazing outlet and place to play music, and it was really beautiful and I feel like thatís not really available anymore and that outlet isnít there.

Rachel Grace Almeida, writing for Broadly:
This can't exist in a space that is dominated by men. Music needs women whether it wants it or not. If this abuse continues, it will drive women even further away from an already-exclusive industry. You have to protect yourself and your career by protecting the man, and I'm fucking sick of doing that.
