Hey Tankboy, how do you pull off a no cover show? Do the bands agree to play for free? Do you slip 'em a few bucks on the side? I think we should start doing some no cover shows in Columbus and would like to get some pointers. Sorry for hijacking the thread.

Yeah but the bands playing there probably aren't of the calibur of bands that Tankboy is putting on his bill.

Pontiac is pretty close to Bourbon Street...a bit bigger but same vocal PA, bands on a little stage set-up. I've got a deal with the bar where we pay out of the register...a guaranteed amount will go to the groups but if they pack the place they get more money...just my way of trying to usher in talent both known (Menthol, Kevin Tihista, NESS, Pas/Cal, Woolworthy have all played there in the past) and unknown...

Tankboy, how well do you know Kevin Tihista? I'm trying to get him down here to do a show on June 17. I can't imagine he'll do it but the offer is out there (the offer being a place to play, not a ton of money).

Um, hmmm...it's tough to say. He only rarely plays out and when he does they tend to be low key affairs. The Last Hotel really wants to play with him and I've been trying to set that up but nothing's comen together yet...
