You Just Don’t Know Someone Until You Play With Them (VIDEO)

Austin Music Scene

Back in August, we started a new exclusive DT monthly Vlog series documenting the life of 2 Penn graduates who are embarking on a music career, so that others can learn from their experiences.

This month Ben Naecker (C’09, Water Polo) and Blake West (W’09, Jazz Combos) talk about:

  • what they’re doing now to make money in month two living in Austin …and whether a “real” job is slowly becoming their forte?
  • their pursuit to find a particular type of band member who seems to be the hardest to find in Austin
  • advice about picking bandmates and warnings about people who “talk a big game”

Watch Episode 3: “Know Thy Bandmates”!
