The Crusade Continues
For the past few years we have tried to develop an original music scene up here in Westchester County. We have had our moments. Way back in 2005 at the Vintage and more recently at the Haunt. Today there are a few venues that now and again will do such a show. And there is original talent in the area that would love to play to a hometown crowd.
Despite the FeastOfNoise.com’s change of focus from music promotion to music news, we will continue to work on this. The crusade continues. We will be highlighting and encouraging venues that support original rock and punk acts. Likewise we will be hyping up bands and acts coming out of White Plains, Yonkers, and Westchester in general. We do want to be the place folks go to on the web to find bands and gigs in the area. In short, regardless of our change of course, our interest in original music and finding a place for it in Westchester is still very much part of who we are.
The music news site might just help the cause. Through the web, folks who may may have never pondered original music, much less, checking it out in there local town, will find us online and might just venture out and see and experience some of the acts we are pushing. Imagine that – people coming out to check out live music.
We shall have to see what happens, but we have not given up on the project of a live venue for original music in Westchester. For that matter, the Wild West has not given up on music promotion period.
