hey junior tiger, welcome to the lucrative music industry here in bustown ohio. i want to give you some kpax pay it forward advice that someone told me and this is how i pull a couple hundred a night gigging around town.

first off go to a club. dont email them or call them because they cant see the hunger in your eyes. are you hungry? if you are not hungry thatn we are wasting both of our times - me writing and you reading.

anyway, cool yeah awesome.

you call the venue and ask to speak to the owner. if they say that they got some sleezeball guy booking the shows or one of the tattood colored haired bartneders doing it, say fuck that shit, johnny, i want to talk to the real deal. the guy who wants to make money here. who wants to make money here?

9 times out of 10 the owner will be like ok now are going somewhere with this. i want to make money that is why i charge $2 for a pepsi.

so now you have a binding contract after some paperwork. you probably cant do this write away but i can - i tell a bar that i need $600 - 300 upfront, 300 after the show is over. i like it to get free drinks for me - and maybe the rest of the band - but definitely me. and you want your girlfriend to get in for free. that is mandatory..

once you make $600 a show and you play sweet clubs then you will get an audience.

after you play a few shows, then you will go and probably start getting a reputation and get promotion in dispatch or columbus alive or whatever. so that is cool.

i hope this helps. sounds like your band is too new to play with me so dont ask to play with any of my 3 bands.

we might be into playing with you if you give us the whole $600 upfront and we play in the middle. we prefer to play 2nd out of 5.

do you want to book us?

i think i told you i was in three bands. so your question is not the right question. if i answered it would be like

hey bilbo my bands are bandonebandtwobandthree

that is an answer that will get you nowhere. so um. what are we gonna do.

one of my bands i guess makes product. the other band has so much gear we make money in ways in which i aint even gonna tell you. the third band makes art, fuck the product placement bilbo mcBaggins.

i can tell you are not serious about this so i guess let me ask you a question. why are you wasting my time for me to write these replies when i can be out there making some serious cashola at venues.

never the treehouse. i will never play the treehouse. me and joe the door guy dont see eye to eye. i dont say that because he is short and i am tall, i say that because that is reality.

drink a protein shake and get your songs on cd101
