So my drummer tells me about this gig he's found that sounds amazing. His girlfriend (the singer's cousin) played in a band that played at this place twice. Here is what he sent to us ":GUYSSS! ok so i went over to danielles today, and she told me back when she was playing in a band the only place they played at(which was twice)a place called cemetery rock. THIS PLACE is amazing! -Its bigger than freebird ( Place we play at locally, one of the best ) -bands have restaurant quality food for them personally for little to no cost depending on the night -they have a great system for loading in equipment -we DONT have to sell tickets -its packed every night -We get paid $250 to $500 EACH. Thats $1250-$2500 for one night! D and the guy who owns the place came to our gainesville show" She has played their twice, and all of it was true both times. The guy apparently only books bands he "thinks can make it big", no tickets are sold, the place is packed everytime, and there's a ludicrous pay amount. Also, there's no website, the place doesn't exist on Facebook/MySpace/ReverbNation (and they don't have a website), and the guy only talks to the drummer's girlfriend by personal E-mail. I trust her fully, however, and she's been there. He'll be in contact with us shortly. I just cannot figure this out. How is it that a place with seemingly no presence, no advertising, and no ticket sales pack a venue that I assume holds 500 or 600 people (referencing Freebird, the other venue) and pay bands over $1,000 each. Oh yeah, we're an original rock band. Granted, it's about an hour away from us, so it's an entirely different scene. Maybe they have more of a local advertising presence. I'll keep an open mind. We'd likely do it for low pay just to expand our presence a bit. But it seems too good to be true, almost too dangerous. How could it work? Have a local "record label" there to prey on the bands? That would make sense. Or maybe this place does draw 500-600 people and everybody makes great money and I'm just cynical.
