This is so true, of the Portland music scene. We're flooded with bars and bands, so the result is.... the many many bars don't want to/need to pay the many many musicians very well at all. Because, band after band is happy to come out and bring their friends and play for beer....when they tire of that, or if their friends stop coming out, the bar moves on to the next "free" band.

Awesome comic! smile.gif I can't agree more how this is true, I've seen it on hundreds of gigs. Bars often completely rely on the bands to do ALL the marketing and to bring in ALL the people in (that buy drinks and admission fees which go to the clubs). Its very sad to see this model all over the world.
