Lively raises $2 million as live concert space heats up

Seattle-based digital music startup Lively has raised close to $2 million in new funding, according to an SEC filing. Lively offers artists an easy way to record their concerts, and then sell them to concert-goers and other fans immediately after the show. A Lively spokesperson wasn’t able to comment any further on the finding round, but judging from SEC filings, Lively has raised a total of $2.65 million so far. Investors include Seattle’s Second Avenue Partners.

The idea to sell digital recordings of concerts isn’t new: Bands like Pearl Jam have been offering their fans officially-sanctioned bootlegs in high-quality audio formats for years. However, Lively’s twist seems to be its immediacy, and the ease-of-use for musicians. The startup developed its own iOS-based capturing software that promises to take the pain out of audio capturing.
