1. You don't get the date you wanted.
2. Venues will change the date without care at the very last minute.
3. Venues rob you.
4. Venues rob you even more because after you're finished booking it they raise the rent. Fucking bastard venues.
Looks like you had a shitty contract,...or none at all,..did you read the fine print?
You need a good contract lawyer to write one up for your next gig....
Heres his number:
SATAN,,, area code 666-666-6666.....he writes the kind of fine print nobody can beat.
I'm doing OUTSIDE promotions. Outside promotions means that I don't work with that venue so I don't get squat besides how many people pay admission after the rent is met. Now, after I booked the show. They went from taking 50% of ticket sales, to a $350 deposit.
