Awesome way to be connected with local music. Wish they compensated their artists and volunteers that use their professional skills more though. Can't expect a photographer to shoot and edit a show for free when people are paying to get in. If shows didn't cost anything to attend the work for free model would be more understandable.

Sofar Sounds was an excellent experience but was by no means a job, given that all team members are unpaid, except for in a few cities. So really it was an extension of my passion for music and excitement to make musical events happen. I learned a ton but there is very little top-down management so most teams are left to figure it out on their own. I enjoyed this and my team did great, but I imagine it is a struggle for many (as it was for us at the start).

Working for Sofar has been a dream come true. Really, a joy in my life. It's truly a global community of dreamers who do ... people who see the big picture but get all facets of the job done. All for the love of music.
