It's been said there are only two constants in this life and they are death and taxes. I found that to be a perfect title for this weeks chapter considering the two main topics.
Death: I hate to start off with a sad solomn note but I had to tip my hat to the late David Bowie. You will be missed, Starman. I wanted you all to hear Iggy Pop talk about him from 1990 and the famous clip from 1983 when Bowie calls out MTV for not playing black artists. We wrap up with Jimmy Fallon mentioning Bowie and we have a small moment of silence before moving on.
Taxes: Ok. More bad news. Taxes are due in about three months. NEVER FEAR! Onward to Tessa Allen of Destroy Nate Allen. We talk about how her and her husband met and started a punk rock revolution one unamplified show at a time. Tessa happens to be wicked smart at taxes and I thought a discussion on how a current DIY musician could learn a few things might be a good idea. Now that avenues such as Patreon and Kickstarter exist, folks need to learn how to deal. Who better than a folk punk rocker?
