A gig had to be rescheduled Thursday next week. However my professional situation makes it that i don't know if i will have to take Holliday's or have to work (regular job) If i have to take holliday, I will not stay in town a whole week just for one gig, or even 2 or 3, whatever i don't need the little money we get through that, I need Holliday's. Some insisted that I had to say of yes or no I will be there, but I say I can't know yet. Booking a sub is the logical thing to do since they don't want to refuse the gig, and use a sub paid 100€. ( While we make 300€ for the whole band ) They did the same last week for the day of music, I was slamming at a music festival, and I said I couldn't be there since a long time, i had the tickets since 3 years because COVID, and play with them for 6 months now. They were not entirely satisfied with the sub, he learned half the song right, so they want to rehearse with him Wednesday next week. So I suggested that if I know I will be there, in the end, like even the day of the show, we just can give the 100 euro to the guy for learning the songs and losing a booked night, while I get to play with my band. Because if I am available finally, why would someone play in my place ? I think I was transparent, to describe the situation, and it seems to me more honest than bailing at the last moment. But I got no answer from that suggestion. What do you think ?
