This might be a tad out of place for this forum, but it had me aggravated and I found this to be a good neutral place for this. lol Ok, so heres the deal... I pretty much handle all the bookings for my band and I was booking us for this metal show at this big night club place(not a typical bar/club, its like a club with tons of rooms for bands to play) with 30+ local bands plus a bunch of national acts... Otep, Brides of Destruction... junk like that... Basically the nationals sucked but alot of friends of ours were playing so I was getting us in on it. So I get us in on it and the promoter says, "You HAVE TO sell 100 tix at 30 bucks a pop... or you foot the rest of the bill of the unsold ones." Now I expected a somewhat pay to play type deal... But is 100 tix at 30 bucks a ticket completely unreasonable for a show looking for UNSIGNED local acts?! I think so... What about you guys? I did my best to stay professional when I said we were out but I was veryyyyyyyyyy tempted to tell this guy to swim in a big bucket of stds... Lets put it like this, we could've sold 60 tix reasonably, that leaves 40 unsold give or take... 40 x 30 = 1,200 dollars. So yea... what do you all think? Completely unreasonable or not?
