Ray Davies, Cheap Trick, The Roots, Trey Anastasio, Ziggy Marley may be "duds" to some but they used to play the 930


Other than this list, I'd consider their calendar mostly duds... Ziggy is on the edge of being a dud.

By "duds", do you mean "Bands I don't like", or do you mean "Bands that couldn't possibly sell any tickets"?

40% of Live Nation Seats Go Unsold...

Here's the riddle: Groupon can definitely fill seats, but they can also generate a culture of bottom-scraping fans.  "Concertgoers may well expect further last minute discounts to appear next time around," the researchers stated.  "While this might work with clothing stores and beauty spas, it does not sit easily with the intimate relationship of a band and their own fans." [emphasis in original]

From the commments:

Let me tell you about the time when Live Nation didn't market a show by a Latin artist to the local Latino community...

Honestly, I haven't kept up on their offerings, just wondering if it was all lip service.

Speaking of late nite eats (well, over in that other thread anyways), Stage Burger opens next to the Fillmore tomorrow.  Highly unfortunate names, hope the food is better....

Anyone else wonder if and how profitable Fillmore SS has been.
I mean I've always had precocious (or as an adult, classist/hipster) musical tastes, but am I just so old that I can't tell that the majority of the acts billed there are relevant? Shouldn't there be at least a few bands a month/year/decade that would catch my eye? I mean they're hosting proms and silent dance parties. Is it that unprofitable to host a few local showcases once in awhile (now that's just a loser band jerk gripe)?
WHAT?
