Re: What does 'Indirect Support' mean at a club?
Yes some of the new terminology is funny to hear! My favorite- a "360 deal" in that a label will give you what you think will be a decent point spread on the album but in return they get a piece of the merch money. In other words, they get 360º (all around) of the profits.
Bands will oftentimes make more in merch sales than in actual music sales.
But I'm bouncing down the road towards off-topic, now aren't I? :D
