on your nights out?
mine is maybe 2/5
but a lot of the shows i go to are run by independent promoters, and as i guess i can afford to pay then i probably should...
soon to be 100% when I get my new job.
so i don't know.
now it's more 1/5
Belfast I got into loads of shows for free. Since moving to Newcastle, I've only been able to blag my way into 4 shows, I think (Fighitng With Wire twice, Biffy Clyro and Ash).
is this just a 'ooh, let me tell you how many contacts I have' thread?
I have none.
it's only really that high because I've got into the nasty occasional habit of not going to nights unless I can get on the guestlist...even when I can afford to go.
i've never been on the guestlist for anything.
I can't remember the last time I paid to get into a gig- I don't go to many cos I'm either busy, broke or both- and probably the last ten I've been to, I've either been playing at or promoting, or djing
a) I have no money
b) It seems like I'm either playing a gig, rehearsing or know someone playing a gig at the moment or recovering from one of those so I've got very little time to go to gigs of people I don't know personally.
Bizarrely I'd actually like to pay to get into more venues as it'd mean I was widening the circle of gigs I go to.
