Starting a Music/Entertainment Publication?

Hello Writers! I don't get on here as often as I should, but I'm in the process of turning that around. Nice to meet you all! I am a music/entertainment journalist whose been looking for a publication to join. I've searched through 500+ publications, and there are roughly 2 that are related to my niche. Cuepoint is a good one, but it looks like it died along with several others. It's frustrating to say the least. 

I'm tempted to start a publication, but I wanted to test the waters and see if anyone is even interested in writing for it or has any advice for getting started. 

If anyone knows of any publications in the music/entertainment vein, I'd love to know.

Thanks all. I'm open to any recommendations.
