Investment Opportunity?

This is interesting:

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/carl-barat-dances-to-venture-capitalists-tune-2227591.html


I'm not a fan of the Libertines but this is an interesting article. To quote:

""That was like performing on Dragon's Den," says Carl Barat after perhaps the strangest gig that the Libertines frontman has ever played.

He has just entertained an elite crowd of 20 venture capitalists in a swanky Soho hotel, who are considering whether to invest their hard-won millions in him. The singer performed after the "dragons" had listened to a presentation by the chairman of Power Amp, an investment firm specialising in the music industry, which is offering a tax-efficient opportunity to back a select number of established artists."

If you add investment in PR and Marketing plus tour support to the DIY distribution channels things get really interesting. With investment you have no need for labels even if you want to compete at the highest level as long as you and your team as an artist know what you're doing or are smart enough to employ people who do.

Every day I see less and less reasons why anyone would want to sign to a label.

This a photo by my friend Tim (@kalyr) from the gig on Saturday night:

Hi Matt, have you heard about this other way of bands getting finance for recording sessions. The fans invest. I heard it was coming to the States, but was already doing well in UK and Europe? https://www.sellaband.com/en/pages/about_us Seems like an interesting concept.
Here is another take on it from the investor point of view. http://www.prweek.com/news/737356/CAMPAIGN-SellaBand-enabling-fans-invest-new-music/?DCMP=ILC-SEARCH

HYIPs Monitor Plan-2500% of your deposit in 2 days-Got $1,250,000 in 48 hours
First of all I think you must assume that all HYIPs (High Yield Investment Programs) are scams, they

are definitely ponzie schemes. They come and they go just like that. Dozens of them pop up everyday

ready to take your AdChoicesmoney and run. They promise high returns on your investment and fast

payment and you do get that for a while. They want to gain your trust. They want you to believe in them

so that you will invest even more money. Then when people start trusting that this is an honest HYIP

with an honest administrator and start investing higher amounts of money, that's when they grab the

money and run.
Now, with all that said I still believe you can make money with HYIPs. There are people out there that

are making money with them, it's all in how you play the game. I did HYIPs for a while and I made money

and lost money. I may even have lost more then I made. I Set up a HYIP MONITOR SITE.
