    Kill Rock Stars' Slim Moon Leaves KRS for Nonesuch

    Nonesuch Records is honored to welcome Kill Rock Stars founder Slim Moon to its team. Pitchfork's Kate Llewellyn has this to say of occasion:

    Kill Rock Stars and Nonesuch might not seem like they have much in common. One label is known for launching pioneering riot grrrl bands (Bikini Kill, Bratmobile), experimental outfits (Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu), and indie rock titans (Sleater-Kinney, the Decemberists).

    The other, a Warner Bros. subsidiary, specializes in "world" music (the Nonesuch Explorer Series, Youssou N'Dour, Caetano Veloso), NPR fare (Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin), and Wilco (Wilco).

    But the pair just got a lot tighter with the announcement that the founder/head honcho of Kill Rock Stars, Slim Moon, will leave his position at KRS sometime this fall to work in A&R for Nonesuch. Moon's wife, Portia Sabin, will take over both Kill Rock Stars and its 5RC imprint.

    The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), formed at the onset of the COVID-19 shutdown and now comprising nearly 2,000 members in all 50 states and Washington, DC, has released the results of a survey in which 90% of its members report that they will be forced to close forever if the shutdown lasts six months or longer without federal support. NIVA reports that the existing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), even with recent modifications, will not save independent venues, as it leaves fixed costs, even when venues are not permitted to open, and has released a new set of policy requests.
