I just wonder...
The record selling business is dead (or at least smells like it).
And gigging + merch was supposedly the future of professional artists.
And now they're gigging for free (I assume the audience didn't have to pay to see the concert) too?
So where does the profit come from? Just the T-shirts?
Doing free online gigs seems like a commercial suicide to me, unless the artist can get a major cut of the advertisement.
Would Schrödinger's cat sound better OTB?
