Recently a band I know was accused of vandalism by a music venue (they had never played at) because a fan had placed one of the band’s stickers on a wall or something.
The band really can’t be held responsible for what fans do on their own time. They have no way to police it.
Behavior like this on the part of music venues leads to NO FUN and bands will stop giving out stickers to promote themselves.
Instead, when stuff like this happens, the smart thing for a venue to do is immediately call and book the band. Because it clearly shows that the band has very devoted fans, willing to vandalize for them.
That said, I ask that fans of GUPPY EFFECT and CACTUS JOE please don’t vandalize. If you want to represent publicly, ask permission.
But you should feel free to represent on your own personal property.
Music venues can be lame sometimes.
I would appreciate it if the non-lame ones would give me a call or E-MAIL ME to book a show.
