    That's worryingly close to reality. Give or take an 8-piece samba band called Sensual Pounding, that was pretty much my band's second gig.

    Haha, first time I've seen this and it's both hilarious and depressing.

    i sent this to my friend and i didn't get a response.. he is so neck deep in praise for our local shit scene that if a promoter did that to him he wouldn't complain

    I've had this happen to me so many fucking times. No offense to anyone here, but it was because of this crap that I fantasize about promoters being hijacked by terrorists...

    Wow. Somehow someone really nailed what it is like being in a band and dealing with other bands and promoters. Both videos are so true it hurts.

    This is why the music scene in my city was so shit and eventually died off :lol:. I'm sure there are exceptions, but my old bands definitely dealt with people like this.

    Haha, those shows can still be fun though. I just get wasted at the bar and grudgefuck/slurr through the set. I crack up every time I make a mistake, it's so childishly spiteful but fun at the same time.

    I mean, we're there, might as well play. On the other hand, without payment I'm just a musician, I stop caring about the presentation and just try to have a good time.
