Economic Justice & Abuse in the Music Industry
A deep dive into how abuse by higher ups in the music industry is both an economic and social issue, and how our perceptions of those in power can bias us against supporting victims. It touches on two recent cases of shady and sexually abusive behavior from two record label heads (Calvin Johnson of K Records, Michael Gira of Swans) and the #freekesha movement.

I'm 1/2 of the editorial board at Store Brand Soda and I am super proud of my coeditor for writing a piece that brings together a lot of things we've been talking about forever: creating safer spaces for trans people +/or women to participate in the elemental human behavior of music, how to separate the art from the artist, and community responses to abuse.
