EL CID RIPS OFF LOCAL BANDS FOR PROFIT! BOYCOTT THEM! SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC!
EXAMPLE: I promoted a show this past Saturday July 15th, 2011 with The Shining Twins, Stab City, The Icarus Line and myself DJing in between bands. The deal was that the bands and I would get 10% of the bar seeing as how it was a free show. Well when it came time to pay up at the end of the night (after we’d sold them thousands of dollars worth of alcohol) they said they couldn’t pay us because we didn’t have a contract. Which is a bullshit excuse cuz they’re paying us under the table in cash. WHOS STOPPING YOU FROM PAYING US? You crooks are. If I needed a contract to get paid because the show was FREE they shoulda spoke up when I sent them the flyer that said “FREE” on it a week before the show. If this club cared about bands and artists they’d find a way to make shit cool between us but instead they’re gonna burn a bridge over a few hundred dollars. So I’m gonna go out of my way to let every band in the LA Area know that this is how these jokers do business and suggest they never play a show at EL Cid. I’ve been putting on shows for over 12 years in LA and I’ve had never had a contract and this is prolly the second time I’ve been been stolen from by a crooked club.
BOYCOTT EL CID!
DO NOT ATTEND SHOWS HERE, DON’T EAT OR DRINK HERE, DON’T GIVE THEM MONEY IN ANYWAY AND DON’T PLAY SHOWS THERE!
BOYCOTT CLUBS THAT RIP BANDS OFF!
BOYCOTT CLUBS THAT DON’T SUPPORT LOCAL MUSIC!
