I have a gig Thursday night and we get paid the door. What are the things to look out for on this type of deal? They are supposed to start taking the cover at 9:00 and we start at 10:00. I assume that the doorman will have his buddies and regulars so as far as I can tell we really have no idea what they collect. Are most places honest about this or should we get someone to sit at the door with the people from the club?
