Moxie Movers

Last night at The Listening Room, Birdie Busch (a TLR alum from Philly) was onstage telling us about her friend, Jesse, who recently moved from Philly and started up Moxie Movers in Richmond. It's a moving company that focuses on employing musicians. As Birdie described it, "Most jobs aren't cool with you accepting a position and then telling them you need off the coming Thursday through Friday to tour." Moxie helps musicians pursue their art while allowing them to pay the bills with a flexible schedule. Apparently there's a Moxie in Philly as well that has employed many indie musicians, such as members from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah:

So, next time you have a move, consider giving them a try. I've heard great things, and am always in favor of supporting local artists!
