I say this promoter should stop trying to muscle people out of talking about their frustration with said promoter. Instead, the promoter should work a bit harder to not piss off so many people in the first place.


Yeah, that bum actually called my employer to complain about my badmouthing him on the forum!

It's true--one of his "true endeavors," no doubt. Of course he was doing this while complimenting me in this forum, in that ultra-polite deferential way of his. That's Tag in a nutshell: Patting you on the back with one hand while plunging a knife in your back with the other.

That sounds creepy. Did he threaten to pull advertising revenue if it didn't cease? If so, you were obviously unphased.

I guess I'd rather not comment on that whole aspect, because it's not my department. But I still contend that I should have the freedom to warn people about that guy, particularly since it is so easy to be deceived by him (like I was).

if I was accidently paid $75 more than what I was supposed to be paid, I would have given the $$ back, no questions asked. but thats just me

I've noticed a real trend in this town of MUSICIANS underpaying bands that open for them or trying to re-negotiate deals after a band has been booked to open for them for a certain amount of $$. It is hardly just the promoters in this town who live within the mindset of Babylon

Sorry if I wasn't clear. What I meant was, if I were Tag in this situation, and I were a dick, I would call up your boss and threaten him or her with lost revenues in order to encourage diciplinary action against you. That's only if I were a dick. If I were Tag, and I weren't such a bad guy, perhaps I would call your boss to try and keep you from airing personal grievances to possible associates over the Isthmus forum. That's all.
