I'm there to promote my music and my band, not hang out with her - we do that when I'm not playing so I can give the attention she deserves. Plus, she's well aware that it's harder to sell cd's to the female members of the audience with a gf on your arm.
My girlfriend is like that, too. She tends to hang around the bar or the back of the venue a little bit, working the merch table. It's nice. She understands that it's a business and treats it as such. You have a winner, my friend. :)
