A week ago, I paid broke a personal record by paying over $50 ($51.23) to fill up my 1997 Nissan Sentra’s gas tank. Ouch.
It made Bob’s new free white paper, with the very long but descriptive title, "How to Recession-Proof Your Music Career: 39 Ways Musicians, Bands and Record Labels Can Reduce Expenses and Prosper in Today’s Economic Times" quite a bit more relevant. If you’re looking to pinch some pennies during your next gig (or for that matter, your next night out, yeesh), you can download it here.
Two of the 39 Ways were completely new to me — BetterThanTheVan.com and CouchSurfing.com are sites bands can use to crash couches across America, one living room at a time, to reduce travel expenses. Awesome. A little unpredictable both for bands and hosts, perhaps, but would surely yield some interesting stories while gigging.
