Sound vs. Image —
It’s honestly hard for me to get motivated by venues’ emails with upcoming shows. All the relevant info is there – Artist names, genre(s) and styles, the date of the show…a few even have links for Spotify which I appreciate.
But then there’s the professionally taken band image. Everybody trying to ‘look’ like something, like what kind of music they play. To me it’s distracting and gives me, at best, an imperfect impression of them as primarily musical artists.
Can’t we embed even 30 seconds of audio? Maybe a professionally taken live video? Give me a taste of what I’m going there for. If restaurants could transmit smells and tastes over the Internet as part of ads, the world would shit its pants.
