I don’t even get the joke.
gonna be honest...it's the internet meme du jour and I don't get it either

Edit...two internet memes as a ref to Brook's airport lunch too

I'm just having fun with an inside baseball joke here

also, I'm going on record that I don't think it's insane that they take a cut
maybe it could be less, but people are drinking less, so there is a source of income that is drying up
maybe a sliding scale for smaller bands (they are already paying them a lot less than the bigger acts)

I think Live Nation is taking their pound of flesh from merch too, but not sure.
that $1500 stipend thing is just crap and everyone knows it

I mean, $1,500 for say 200 shows per year is $300K. That's not chump change, but I'd also hope that wouldn't bankrupt a venue either...

but the folly is that's not coming from the bottom line, I'm sure the band will lose revenue in other places and the customers will pick up the fees

all they do is need to add a $1 per ticket line item "for bands food and travel costs" most people wouldn't care a bit
LN is not taking this money out of their profits...

Interesting developments…maybe this and not the alcohol prices explains people noticing less drinking at shows

I think young people are finally realizing that there are basically zero redeeming aspects of booze... as well as having access to better drugs.

The concern on this board for Israel and Jews following the terrorist attacks ten days ago has been heartening.
