Unhealthy trend

Posted on: July 25, 2008

I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before but lately, there’s an unhealthy trend going on in our music scene especially towards the newer bands. Organizers (vampires) will organised a gig, often at places that is not only secluded and too small for performers, sometimes they didn’t provide amps la! and the weirdest thing is, the band must sell a certain number of tickets in order to perform! L.A.M.E

Here’s an example how these so called organiser plan their stuff:

Time Slot is drawn by lots
Minimum have to sell 20 tixs. (This is to ensure that u wont be playing to an empty club in the event that other guest leave after supporting the band they came for)
members will also sell 20 tickets but receive 5 guestlist for family and friends.

There will be no longer commission.
Bands who are able to sell more than 30tixs will receive $50.

Based on the example above, do you think our young musicians will survive? Given the fact that they are exposed to this “vampires”?

You be the judge….
