and for the sale at the show, this particular venue sells their own "stash" of posters. We generally sell them cheaper at the shows, given the bands permission. The venue purchased this poster. Their management is also getting a bundle for sale at their own leisure. Yes, we do like to wait until after the show to start shipping/sending out orders, but if the show is using them as promotion, we generally do the same. A little scent to get people to attend never hurt anyone. and for Cleveland, the more people at the show, the better. But your comment Justin is quite true. We do everything we can to make the bands happy. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be having as much fun.
Yeah we usually wait on it but, neither us nor the band will be selling at the show, so I didn't see anything wrong with it. But I totally understand the rule and will consider that before selling in the future.
