thats fucking shit for two overseas bands what are you on about? i have seen hundreds of overseas bands for less than ten dollars. ones at least as popular as title fight are. if they sell out one of the shows in melbourne which has like a 900 head capacity theyll make 45,000 on the door. for one fucking show. they wont but still, if you look at all the costs involved including touring visas and insurance and travel costs and shit theres still a huge profit for soundwave for doing virtually nothing except book a couple of venues. useless company does nothing.
Don’t really know why you need to swear at me or anything. I’m not speaking directly for nor am I defending Soundwave.. I’m just stating that $50 isn’t that bad in the scheme of things. The venues that do hold 900 people usually cost a lot more, and then per 50-100 people you need two security guards. Plus each band has a guarantee and overseas bands usually ask for a minimum of $1000 per show, plus their riders which cost up to $200.
I can’t speak for other states or venues, but ones I know of here in Brisbane are expensive, and for smaller promoters (obviously not soundwave) they often don’t make a profit, and at the end of the day businesses do need to make a profit, just like a band does. You’d be surprised how many bands demand things…yet seem to ‘care all about the music’
Like I said, I’m not defending Soundwave or anything, simply just saying.. there are a lot of costs involved, two sides to every story. Chill out.
I am flying to Mackay to surprise my Mum, who has been really lonely lately. My dad has been stationed away in the middle of no-where for three months, leaving my mum alone in Mackay. She doesn’t really know anyone up there, so all she does is works and watched tv series… probably escaping from reality just like I do.
Anyway, I decided I needed to make the effort to go and see her, because I normally only see her twice a year. I’m taking JGF up with me, to show him what Mackay is like. We’re only able to get time off work for three days, so we will fly home Monday. But I’m okay with that, seeing her will be great. I can’t wait to surprise her.

““Bros before hoes.” Why? Because your bros are always there for you. They have got your back after your ho rips yours heart out for no good reason. And you are nothing but great to your ho, and you told her that she was the only ho for you, and that she was better than all the other hoes in the world… and then… and then suddenly she’s not yo’ ho’ no mo’.”—Michael Scott (via therza)
