It’s audit time on my show tonight… everyone I play on BVST tonight between 7 and 9pm gets paid a few extra cents on their next performance royalty cheque (or so the theory goes). You can expect heavy CanCon, lots of my friends and favorites, and a couple of defunct bands that I love dearly. Which brings me to my question… if I play long dead bands like the Bitchin’ Camaros, Scissorfight, Kill Cheerleadër, Cursed, Cobra Noir, etc., do they still get paid?
Here’s what you missed, sucker:

In case you were wondering, yes, I did interrupt my set halfway to play all of First Blood by the Chainsaw Hookers. I figured the powers that be wouldn’t take too kindly to me playing it over and over, so this was a healthy compromise.
