Post Pandemic Local Music with Downtown Radio’s Mark Martinez
Downtown is getting busier and part of the reason why is because music is coming back. You saw that Rialto and Foxx Theater both announced shows coming up later in the summer and into the fall. So we thought it’d be a good time to talk about local music and as we come out of the pandemic, what’s it likely to look like? So we sat down with Mark Martinez has this guy knows music. He knows local music. He works at the Rialto, he is a photographer of mainly music events. He has his own show, actually, couple of shows, here are Downtown Radio, he’s a board member and he really is in the know. So he sat down to talk with him about what post pandemic local music is going to look like for the artist and the technicians.
