Best Buy Will Now Stock Local Music. Is it a Good Plan For Your Band?
|The devil in disguise? Local bands sold at Best Buy?|
So here we have a classic dilemma. On the one hand, there's an opportunity for increased exposure of local bands, in a situation where they actually get paid for their product. On the other hand, what the hell? Charging a band to stock their CDs? Not to mention that who the hell would wanna buy a CD, let alone a local CD, from Best Buy when there are a plethora of fantastic, independently-owned local record stores to choose from? Decide for yourself, but I'll take my local mom-and-pop any day of the week.
