Mission statement for final project

Page history last edited by PBworks 15 years, 5 months ago

My final project will consist of an essay. I decided to write my essay on the importance of Do It Yourself ethics on today's local music scene and how it has been affected by new technology. I will write about how Myspace and the internet has greatly changed the way musicians gain a fan base and how things have changed for struggling musicians since the 1980's. I will compare and contrast the "Orange County" punk scene of the early to mid/late 80's, the "East Bay" and Gainesville punk scene of the mid to late 80's/early 90's, and today's music in our own area. Explaining how bands in their own times got their name out will be the majority of my essay, and how they followed their ethics and code of Do It Yourself. I will show the challenges they faced and not only the popularity they gained, but the respect that came with it. Starting from their practice sessions in their garage, to touring the country in their own car, I will provide a timeline of events that leads up to present day and will show the significant changes made along the way.
