  1. We just flew there specifically to see Vulfpeck play Tipitinas – one of the closest-to-perfect venues that’s ever existed thanks to its history, sense of community and layout. Re. Half Japanese playing there, you might remember that it was raining buckets that night and there were – at best – a dozen fans present. I wonder who was asleep at the marketing wheel?

    1. I do remember the dozen or so people there. I think that was partly why the hug was so enthusiastic. Also, you may remember, they destroyed their instruments at the end of the last song. It turned out this was because it was the final show of the tour, and they didn’t want to haul all their gear back to New Jersey in their touring station wagon.

Howdy. I'm Michael Donaldson.

I'm a consultant for the music industry, working with emerging artists and labels. I also manage a label of my own, named 8D Industries, and publish + license music under 8DSync. Sometimes I'm a Q-Burns Abstract Message. But mostly I'm just trying to keep these damn cats out of my office.

I like to send postcards to my friends, and if you'd like I'll send one to you.

Oh, and here's what I'm working on now.
