Sure, we've all got an encyclopedia of tour stories from our time on the road - some are embarrassing, hilarious, insane, stinky? - let's use this space to share our experiences with the IOTM community. What's your greatest tour story??

Making a Great "Record"

Yes, we've all seen this argument before - analog vs. digital, sonic quality vs. cost effectiveness - but what are the real benefits and detriments of both mediums through each stage of the recording process? Does it really make that big of a difference?

There are definitely some misconceptions that go into translating a great live show into a great album, and following the rules is not always the best studio approach. What tricks have you discovered that helped you better capture your sonic vision?

Many bands/artists like to record their live shows, both audio & video...this can be useful not only for archival & critical review, but also potentially for commercial release if something special is captured. So how do you get the best results?

The idea of Pay to Play pervades many aspects of the music industry these days - cloaked or otherwise - but has this approach also seeped into the digital world under the ruse of websites and applications aimed at "helping independent musicians"?

Whether we're talking about an old school press kit, band website, facebook timeline, or tour poster, the importance of a great live shot can never be understated. After all, a picture says 1,000 words, right? So how do you capture the best live photo?

Does anyone have any newspapers, magazines, fanzines, blogs, etc. that are helpful when promoting a show or new album? Local, regional, national (web or print), post them here and please include a web link.

When it comes to promoting new shows, album releases, upcoming tours, etc., it seems like we are bombarded with online options these days. So what about print media? Do periodicals still have any effect/results on event promo? Is print dead?
