    Today, September 3, is Bandcamp Friday.
    So what is Bandcamp Friday you may ask? From Bandcamp's web site:

    "On the first Friday of every month since March of 2020, we’ve waived our revenue share to help support the many artists who have seen their livelihoods disrupted by the pandemic."

    https://daily.bandcamp.com/features/bandcamp-fridays-2021

    So today is a good day to purchase music from Bandcamp because the artists will receive more money.

    Myself, I am going to purchase a couple albums, including one from Arch Echo, who will be playing at ProgPower USA in June 2022.

    Have a great holiday weekend!

    Edit: While Bandcamp Friday lasts the entire day, midnight to midnight, I just discovered this: Bandcamp uses PACIFIC TIME (PST) so keep that in mind. Made the mistake of purchasing music early this morning thinking it was Bandcamp Friday at 1pm Central time. I was one hour too early. :bah:

    I found one of my newest favorite bands on Bandcamp, The Bloody Hammers, I'm subscribed to them.

    Bandcamp is a great place for music isn't it?

    I didn't do any of the research I needed to going into this one. I thought I had another week, lol. Oh well, November it will be.

    There must be a lot of us who wait until the artists can get maximum $$ from our purchases & its really cool of Bandcamp to be doing it.

    Yeah. Even when not on BC Fridays the artist gets something like 80%, and that goes up to like 93% for BC Fridays. So I never feel like "bad" about not buying on those Fridays, but I'll strive to hit them when I can. BC's gotten lots of my money anyway, lol

    Oh I know. I'm 100% with you on this. BC is awesome. Finally someone selling an artist's music that doesn't rip off the artist.

    I picked up a smallish slice this time, and the highlight is probably Sion - Self Titled. For any fan of Howard Jones era Killswitch Engage. Howard Jones on vocals and Jared Dines leading the guitars...this album is metalcore perfection.

    They said that once before, too. We shall see. They do still pay their artists a much higher share than everywhere else, though, so I never feel bad buying from them (and they still need to get paid, too).

    Thats a great point.
    I've heard from other sources that Bandcamp gives the artists the most money from purchases. Its good to hear this from you too.

    I've noticed that artists are producing more music now that they cannot tour, so its important they get the most from our purchases. I've kicked up my merch purchases from bands I like the most too.
