Re: Touring for no money
The area where I live is crawling with opportunities to "play for the exposure". These places offering this are clubs, bars, festivals, fund-raisers, and even "tours" promoted by some hacks just out to make a buck for themselves.
They post an ad and build themselves up and get your blood flowing because it sounds great, but at the end of the ad it's always the same thing: "We have no money to pay you, but this is an EXCELLENT opportunity to get your name out there and get exposure".
And as usual, plenty of youngsters fall for this. It's a shame.
I don't aim to be the best, just the best looking.
