Calling All Musicians & Music Biz Types

City wants your input for the Live Music Task Force

“We’re here from the City of Austin, and we’re here to help.” If you can swallow that premise, then tell the city EXACTLY how it can help you and the local music industry. The Live Music Task Force has posted a survey to provide a direct voice for musicians, producers, agents, managers, club owners and others. The city gets a lot of spin pitching Austin as “Live Music Capital of the World” — here’s your chance to tell them how to keep you working and living in Austin. The survey may close June 30 – take it online here. After the jump, some sample questions from the survey.

Sample Live Music Task Force survey questions:

14. On a scale of 1-5, how satisfied are you with the following community issues that impact our local music community? affordable housing low cost health insurance low cost health care job training availability of studio space educational loans business loans legal assistance parking/permits centralized information booking/management/professional services other

18. What role should government play in supporting Austin's music industry?

19. Do you have any ideas for ways to improve the vitality of live music in Austin?

20. What do you consider to be the 3 most pressing issues facing the music community of Austin?
