I've only been in Vancouver's "original rock/punk/indie/pop" music scene for a few months and things are going GREAT! Some things I've noticed though... The response at all ages shows seem to be 10x that of bar gigs. Kids seem so much more open to new bands whereas the older crowds seem pretty set on their list of bands to listen to. Basically it's "Hey, you guys were great on stage, gimme a hi5" vs. "I want ur autograph, do you sell shirts? I'll buy em all so nobody else can have em!!!" Just so much more hype. Our last all-ages, we handed out about a hundred demo CDs... where it didn't even look like a hundred people showed up Is this anybody else's experience as well? How does it affect your band? If not, what's your situation like?
