Played this gig last weekend where the admission really stuck in my craw. The deal was; - 21 and older; $5 at the door, $4 advance (this is the US midwest; cost of living is low; gas is often around $1.32 a gallon). - !8-21 (can't buy booze); $9 at the door, $8 advance (That's like, what, almost 3 1/2 pounds vs. 5 1/2 pounds vs. for you UK'ers?). When we booked, I didn't know about this. We are being asked to book again and I'm tempted to ask the club manager to consider lowering the cover for 18-21 year olds. The place was fairly packed, but they could have fit a few more hundred in. Maybe I should just shut up. Do you folks have any sway over cover charge where you play?
