Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

It is $1200 for the whole band. I think I agree with you about booking our own tour. Its just the allure of getting to play real clubs with all of the ammenities that makes the buy in seem so cool. ...

Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

I almost feel that way myself about the whole thing. I grew up playing in hardcore bands where everything was very DIY. The idea of paying to play with a bigger band was sacreligious at the time. I...

Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

I knew this question would come up. And I'm not really sure how much I can say. Both bands have current radio hits and played second stages at major festivals this year. Not arena shows, but should...

Re: Another Frustrated Drummer....

Being a native of San Jose, I can tell you that we feel the exact same way about LA. They need to just cut off the state at the grapevine and give everything south of that back to Mexico.

Re: Another Frustrated Drummer....

I am surprised no one else has said it, but don't try to be a square peg in a round hole. If the music isn't for you and you are struggling to play it, maybe its not the right band for you. I am sure...

Re: Going on Tour would like some advice!

I have done what you are about to do, and if this is your tenth tour, you have more experience than most. Most of my advice would be things you have likely already figured out. The no budget tours...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

I would say that as recently as a few years ago I would looked at that picture and thought how crappy the music world had become. But my teenage daughter is really into the whole EDM thing, and...

Re: Some tips for you GC Drum-Off gladiators

I dont ever participate in the drum off, but I always go watch to the guys who do. I realized reading your blog that you pretty much nailed what I have always felt. The one thing you really hit on...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

I did a tour a few years ago where we drove for 10 days and probably averaged less than$50 a show. So I dont think I am a very good person to ask this question to. In the end it is a very personal...

Re: Drumming with repetitive strain injury (RSI)

I dont suffer from RSI necessarily, but 20+ years of playing with rock, punk and metal bands have taken a toll on my body. I have a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder, a bursa sack in my right...

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

My only surprise is how many people here said, "the story was too hard to follow" or "I tried reading the posts got lost." I mean Jesus people, it was written in English (more or less) and spread out...

Re: Covering a song with band above my skill level (Opinions on hitting the "key" points)

I would keep the 16th note feel and ditch the accents if you cant pull them off. I cant listen to it at work, but I know the song and I feel the song really rides on that funky kind of beat. As long...

Re: EPs or Album?

I have quite a bit of insight into this as my band just released a full length LP. Our reason for doing so was that it is something we always wanted to do. Releasing an album with the full artwork,...

Re: Is it just me?

I play the small bar/club scene here and I would say I have mics about 1/3 of the time. Even then its mostly just a kick/snare mic combo. One of the bigger places we play has a full close micing...

Re: Gorilla Music

I made the mistake of playing one of the Gorilla shows. I had read all of the negative press, but they had a great venue booked on a Saturday night so we rolled the dice. It worked out very well for...

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

I usually try to book bars with bad reputations. Unless the reputation is that nobody shows up. Sometimes a nice fight fight in the crowd makes for a great show.

BTW, whats this pay in advance...

Bad hi-hat recording

Re: I Want to Gig!

I guess the music scene in your paticular area has quite a bit to do with the availability of bands. I put an ad on CL a few years ago and got 5 or 6 responses within the first week. Between that and...
