When you're in a touring band, especially one at our level (which is medium or something), promoters tend to get really, REALLY lazy. They think the fastest way to a successful show is to put way too many bands on and force them to sell tickets.
Good promoters will have opening bands sell tickets IN ADDITION TO promoting the show via posters, radio ads, Facebook ads, etc.
Sorry for the slow comic release too. We are working on a new album and various other projects. I think you'll be happy with the result, heh... heh...
... I think this comic needs more blood.
