About John Raso

John has been a denizen of NYC rock shows since he convinced his older sister to take him along to first rock show at the age of 8. This experience eventually lead to a career in the music industry doing publicity and marketing for labels including SST and Atlantic as well as a stint at LiveNation. Today, John is an executive at music rights administrator, The Harry Fox Agency. Four decades later, he still believes that a week without live music is just not a week worth having.
