July 29, 2015 at 4:13 AM (PT)
A rally benefit concert supporting the "Fair Pay for Radio Play" legislation will be held at the Whiskey A GoGo in LOS ANGELES on JULY 31st. Artists and allies will gather at 5p to sign the statement of support.
The rally/reception, hosted by SAG-AFTRA and MUSIC FIRST, will be followed by a concert featuring L.A. GUNS, ASHES OF EAGLES, ATOMICSHIFT, THE WYLDZ, TAKIN’ NAMEZ, MR. WHITE and VUDU FLY.
Said L.A. GUNS in a statement: “We fully support the 'Fair Pay for Fair Radio Play' legislation that is currently under consideration in CONGRESS. As artists, it’s important to have as much control over our music as possible and to be compensated for our work at all times. The current AM/FM loophole takes advantage of not only bands like ourselves with deep music catalogs, but also up-and-coming artists who are just entering the industry. By forcing radio stations to step up, this bill levels the playing field. So let’s get it passed in WASHINGTON and support the next generation of rockers!”
