whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   as a patron the bar would rather you spend your money on booze anyway so protesting the merch tax by not buying anything except more beer is advantageous to the club   2006-10-16 14:57:13
whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   the only time you can challenge that is when, as a band you are drawing enough to have any leverage with the club. and, yes, the merch fees are often in the contracts.   2006-10-16 14:55:10
judgeSend judge a message :   I cannot tell you how many times I've had to pull the contract out at the end of the night because they think they're entitled to what wasn't agreed upon.
NOT ALL venues are assholes, so many are cool, but it definitely goes on more than most fans know.
I've said my piece & with that too much. Man, I sure got riled up.

judgeSend judge a message :   I don't mind if they count, cuz at least their doing SOME wk, & I have too poor of a memory & no interest in scamming them.
I think when more people see this in the light of day maybe it'll change. Right now the venues think 'your lucky we let you play here & if you don't play by our rules, go play somewhere else, there are plenty of bands that would PAY US to let them play. This is the way it's done, period." SO CHALLENGE THEM.

philaarts.comSend a message :   hey judge.. when you are booked you sign a contract.. venues have to make money too. blame trey not venues.
  2006-10-16 14:47:53
judgeSend judge a message :   Not to mention paying back record label for CD's (which if you owe them half the selling cost of CD then pay % to venue & your staff the musician walks with what??). It's hard to be a working musician (I'm an observer, not a musician). So in order to make SOMETHING the band has to charge more. Most smaller venues don't take a cut, which is as it should be. This merch % thing BURNS ME up. So please spread the word & tell any venue you find taking a % that as a fan you won't support them.   2006-10-16 14:46:59
whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   and, A lot of bigger venues will have someone do an independent count of the merch and totals to make sure it's all on the level so there is little wiggle room for the band to cheat on the figures.   2006-10-16 14:45:51
whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   what judge said!   2006-10-16 14:42:43
whiteyhoustonSend whiteyhouston a message :   yes! yes they can and do, often. When it's $35 for a t-shirt, that's why. I've gotten so much flak from people about this kind of shit without people knowing just how much is taken off the top..
there is also management taking their cut.. %15, plus paying merch staff 5-10% and promoters/venues taking 10-20% all from the merch totals.. it adds up
  2006-10-16 14:39:16
judgeSend judge a message :   Oh yes they can. Most venues that do, act completely entitled to taking a cut. It's an invisible battle & I LOVE to let EVERYONE know that their doing it. Some venues won't let you sell (they have their own people) & at least if they do that, they're earning the % but most places don't do anything for you & take the $. So before you knock the band ask the merch person (especially if it's a bigger venue & you note the prices are higher than norm) whether the venue is taking a %. At the same time I don't want to discourage folks from buying merch even at the higher $ because it literally buys the gas, fixes the van & gets bands to the next town. I'd love if fans told the venues to CUT IT OUT.   2006-10-16 14:37:09
dennyschmickleSend dennyschmickle a message :   holy crap. really? the venue can cut into merch sales? that's wild.   2006-10-16 14:30:04
judgeSend judge a message :   As a merch person, I have to let you know that many a venue (especially the bigger ones) try & take a cut of band merch. the %'s can range from 10%-35%. I don't know if this is why the band may have charged more (& that's a pretty giant difference from $10-$35) but It's shitty that these venues do this when the bands don't get a % of bar rings & merch $ pays the bills on the road.   2006-10-16 14:27:21
The Fresh PrintsSend The Fresh Prints a message :   no, i thought "price gauging" is when you go to a gig and say to yourself, "damn, look at all these stoney boloneys, i bet they will pay $35 for this $10 poster. hah hah hah.." you are just gauging what you can get for something, right?? to "price gouge" seems so violent...   2006-10-16 13:37:54

John ASend John A a message :   I used to buy the leftover tour shirts that all these bands sell at the venues for 35 bucks for 2 bucks each in bulk. I'd then sell them for 10 bucks cuz I'm an asshole capitalist.   2006-10-16 10:52:19

TheLawyerSend TheLawyer a message :   Not an ambulance chaser and I like boadicea's suggestion. At the next show I'll bargain with them or make some smart ass comment. I'll probably still end up buying it for whatever price they charge. The thing about this poster is that Trey had some charity for this event and some folks got VIP tickets $150.00. He signed the poster and there was a meet and greet. I had the average Joe tickets and the show was amazing.   2006-10-16 10:41:18
boadiceaSend boadicea a message :   many times the online posters have been on the road at the merch tables and then packed back up...they are pretty weathered and not mint... next time just tell the merch guy they are only worth $10   2006-10-16 10:37:56
phoondaddySend phoondaddy a message :   Are you a WHAAA-MBULANCE chaser?   2006-10-16 10:35:51
TheLawyerSend TheLawyer a message :   I feel like a jack ass because it's the first time I've experienced price event specific price gauging. If anything the poster should have been $10 at show, $35 online to benefit those who actually attend shows like myself. Oh well.   2006-10-16 10:34:08

TheLawyerSend TheLawyer a message :   It is a great poster; however, I hate the fact that they charged $35 at the show and you can now get it for $10 on the Trey's website. I can understand that they want to get rid of remaining posters that they could not sell at the show but come on, keep the price at what it was sold for so the rest of us don't feel ripped off.   2006-10-16 10:23:47
