Tour with background expenses

Alright, to all those who tour, or know more about touring, and have bills such as Student Loans, car insurance and phone bills to pay for. How in the hell do you do it?!?!?

My student loan alone is $150 a month.

I know bands in the hardcore/metalcore genre don't make shit.

I always make sure that the clubs/venues or where we are playing pays us enough to cover everything, like with gas money, hotels, food etc etc. We don't make a shit out of it but we don't lose a shit either. I don't know how it's like in other countries but here 1 gig gives us about 400-500$. And when you do about 10-15 gigs in one "tour" + selling merch, you suddenly have a budget to make everything work while you're on the road. :P But when i get home im back to being broke and got just enough to pay my bills and buy some food on cans But ain't that a true life of a rockstar? ^^
