    It just illustrates how fortunate we are in Chicago, to have some venues that value posters and treat poster artists like humans.
    just got home from Chicago. did the Goat poster for the Empty Bottle show. normally, I usually do not give a print to the venue, as they get their percentage from the bands merch, BUT I was asked very politely by the Bottle if I could bring an extra one, so I did, because I love that place so much.

    the LiveNation thing is troubling, especially when they go rogue own their own posters (and not just promo) without the band, or respective management knowing about it. I have had a couple two-poster shows, that the band had no idea of. St. Andrew's, here in Detroit, is starting to sweat the poster thing, but it is more of a clenched fist "are you trying to sneak merch in without reporting it?" type of assault. I have been questioned hard when bringing in prints. Don't worry dude, no need to be a hard ass...the band will tell you how many prints I brought...the merch booth is just steps away from the front one is trying to screw you out of your merch cut you can go back to busting harmless kids for smoking weed during rock shows. pffft.

    I have no clue why a venue that makes a percentage of the bands sales of merch has a problem with their name being on a poster that they are making MONEY off of. I mean talk about terrible business.

    That sucks. Re:Live Nation venues, I've worked with House of Blues Boston without trouble - while I don't have a great opinion of management/venue in general, the people in charge of merch stuff are solid.
