    Haha, thats funny, yeah I reckon there would always be a que for refunds!! I agree with you it is a great idea to support the scene, I just saw posts on the first page and assumed when people say €8, fub off, oh its a touring band thats ok, that they were expecting to get in for free...

    I think it also had something to do with people not understanding the point I was trying to make. I did not think it was just that someone would only pay to see a gig if the band was touring. I should also be excused slightly because I am trying to work as well as type here on the forum...

    Re: Ah, gig..November Coming Fire, The Skies Collide, Based On Reason, Breaking The W A van is a fixed asset. It goes under the heading of "Motor Vehicles". i.e. they can sell the van after the tour therefore it is not an overhead. The depreciation of the van is however. By not paying...

    Firstly Bill, why don't you wait till Thursday and come and see my band, that is if you can spare the €8 entrance fee. If you still think we are sh*t then fair enough. Secondly, I completly agree that a touring band should get more money, after all it is their gig at the end of the day. I...

    Every band has expenses. Every gig costs a band money, I don't care if a band is coming from Kent or Kenya to play, the quality of music should be the deciding factor in how much is charged in. The band if they are going on tour prob has a van already and therefore the only extra overhead is...

    Yeah, you make a good point because all you have to do to play a gig is finish school and walk to the gig.. There is no buying equipment, paying for practice every week, new strings, new sticks etc etc (unless you are lucky to have somewhere to practice for free). Does that mean that if one...

    Ah, gig..November Coming Fire, The Skies Collide, Based On Reason, Breaking The Walls

    Just want to ask a quick question... What difference does it make if a band is travelling or not? Surely the music is what you pay for when you go to a gig, if the band is excellent and from Kildare or Kent is doesn't really make a difference.. Why would it be "graaand" to pay if bands are...
