You know what’s super awkward? When a band plays a show and afterwards asks to get paid – even though payment was never discussed before the event.
Yeah, not getting paid sucks, but why would you expect pay if nothing was offered in advance?

Listen now to learn how and why you should ask for payment information and get those terms in an email before you book your next show!
