We're looking for a few talented, musically literate freelance writers to help cover the incredibly diverse Bay Area live music scene for All Shook Down. We will pay you money — more like beer money than rent money, but still — to go to shows, write down your opinions, and tell our readers what happened at the club last night.
First, though, here's what we don't want: We don't want fawning fanboys and girls who will gush at every show they see, or who are afraid to come out and say when something fails. We want informed critics — writers who can cleverly explain why something is good and/or bad. You should have an opinion, be able to support it with evidence, and be confident enough to remain calm when anonymous commenters inevitably say you know nothing about music and suck at life.
