Re: “More Bands Are Chasing Fewer Bucks

As a struggling musician in San Diego, this makes my head spin. I know artists that have three bands that tour constantly, under different names, now I know why, and I am going to hurt them.

Knowledge is key here and once again my man Pio has the facts. Big money has it's hands in our ear holes, you know what's great about Big Money? They leave fingerprints! Now that we are armed with the knowledge we can adapt and grow. Thank you.

Queen Ida and the Bontonnes would play Ashkenaz monthly for three or four dollars at the door, you know why they were packed every month? Because they were good. Remember when that was enough? Freakies at the Square, sold out. Then I suppose we are all to blame, "well I love the Chilis, and I only paid 10 bucks last year, okay, lets spend 35 this year."

So what is the answer, boycott venues? Lowered expectations? I'm all ears!
