It'd cost more if your playing at stadiums than clubs. That's about $13,000 a night max. Play 2-3 times a week for 6 months. = profit Half a million a year for a mediocre band.
    That's silly. No one is going to pay a band 13k 2 to 3 times a week. What kind of club can afford that? It doesn't matter that they get say 30% of the profit.
    An album sells for 10 dollars and it sells 50'000 copies. That's still a good 160'000 dollars.

    As for websites being shut down, that sucks. But I think a lot of old school crackers and phreakers (back in the warez days) would upload their own sites to darknet, which are free from SOPA restriction.

    Time to roll a joint, sit down, and watch the internet collapse. Americans and their laws. They always manage to extract a laughter from my mouth, no matter how depressed I am.

    Bands don't tour for 6 months at a time. They need albums to bring in revenue while they aren't on tour.

    My friend Jack and his band tours about 9 months a year and they've only released one album like 3 years ago. They still make close to 300k a year.

    Most mainstream bands concerts are at least $60 a ticket
    Coldplay is playing in Dallas in June but too expensive
    I'll just watch live videos on YouTube

    If it does get passed, it won't last very long. Too many people hate it and companies like Google and Facebook won't stand for it.
