The first open Musicians For Musicians, Inc (MFM) meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 8th, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The location is: CA Music Room, 218 E.25th Street (btw 3rd and 2nd Avenues), New York, NY 10010.
MFM is a New York based non-profit musician organization supported and run by musicians. Established this year by Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi, musician (leader of the music collective SoSaLa), music activist, and chief-editor of the music online magazine DooBeeDooBeeDoo NY. MFM’s intention is to represent all musicians regardless what genre as a business league. We believe that musicians are professionals and need to get paid like any other working people. Advocating the notion that making music is a profession.
On Sunday, August 16th, Brooklyn’s Shapeshifter Lab hosted the second day of the annual The Dissident Arts Festival.
(The Dissident Arts Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special weekend-long “2 nites/2 sites” edition. The event took place on Saturday August 15 and Sunday August 16 at El Taller Latino Americano (Manhattan) and ShapeShifter Lab (Brooklyn), respectively. DooBeeDoo congratulates this “annual gathering of revolutionary creativity.” John Pietaro respect and keep the good work!)
