Five Ways The Music Industry Is Changing In Seattle (and everywhere else…)

Rafat points us at a stellar article in Seattle Weekly which chronicles five events that have a ripple effect on your career, even if you’re not in Seattle:

  1. Starbucks is taking over the record industry.
  2. Paul Allen is pulling out of KEXP. And no, that’s not as drastic as it sounds.
  3. The sweaty human touch of that live show you saw last week? You have the Internet to thank for it.
  4. Even if Starbucks does take over the record business, it may not be for long, because the CD is dead.
  5. Still, we’ll always have vinyl–even if analog is up for grabs.
