How can I snag the Afghan Whigs setlist from an upcoming show?

This is for a birthday gift and I'm really pining for it. The obvious answer would be to grab it at the show, but this is their first album in 16 years and at a small venue, it's sure to be a sold out show. My chances of actually grabbing it in a crowd of people is minimal (plus, what about security?). I'm wondering if it's too much to ask if someone backstage can grab it, but that would involve calling the venue's box office and asking a favor which I'm not sure would work. I thought of sending a letter with a self-addressed stamped envelope to their fan site but I realize those letters probably never reach the band. Has anyone successfully done this, or have any ideas that might work? [more inside]

Band guest list etiquette?

We're going to a gig tonight that is massively sold out … and we're on the guest list. Are guest lists completely at the whim of the venue, or are there general guidelines that apply to most venues? We want to enjoy the show, but don't want to be “that guy” who ruins it for those nearby. [more inside]

When new guitarist rewrites old guitarist's parts, who owns what?

A founding member of my 5 piece band was kicked out this summer, and we are going to rewrite 80% of his parts when we rerecord. We didn't like the old guitar parts and helped him write some of them, which is the main reason we wanted to part ways. He is now asking for equal ownership of the composition of songs originating from his tenure, and claiming that it is industry standard for the new guitarist who contributes new guitar compositions to get nothing. This seems very bizarre to me, but is he right? We all own an equal share of publishing and masters on songs that are already released.

Bad live sound: Venue or band?

Toronto indie band rehearsals...in a condo?

I live in the Annex of Toronto. My indie folk band has been rehearsing in my place, which I rent in a large apartment building, and there was never any problem. I just found out that in september I'll have to move into a condo with my sister. I don't own the condo but the important thing is that I won't be able to hold rehearsals because the people in the building like ultra-quietude. Where in Toronto can my band find very cheap rehearsal spaces for rent (we are based in the annex)? or, alternatively, how can I soundproof my apartment? [more inside]

How do you part ways with a terrible bandmate who is also a dear friend?

I want to make sure we do it in the most compassionate, generous way possible. What are some things to do -- and to avoid doing -- when we finally sit down with him? [more inside]

Watch adjustment

I have this type of watch. The manual suggests that I should get Timex to repair the battery. I'm hoping to be able to do it myself and save a few bucks. However, I don't really see any way to get the back off. I also want to adjust the band as it's too large for my wrist. But, again, I really have no idea how to do this. Hoping someone here can tell me if this is something I'd be able to do from home (and tell me how to do it) or whether I should take it to a jeweler.

Will anyone care/notice if I lived in a 24 hour music practice space?

I figure if a practice space is open 24 hours it would be hard for the staff to determine if I'm living there or just practicing music alllllll the time. However, I also figure that a 24 hour practice space expects that starving artists will be trying to live there. However however, I also figure that the kinda people running a 24 hour practice space are cool with people living there and are kinda trying to say "shhhhh, don't tell nobody but this is a place where we turn a blind eye to starving artists trying to live here". I just wanna beat on my drum all day. [more inside]

What is a good credit card for a band (or a small LLC) ?

We're looking to obtain the best credit card possible for a 5 person band with minimal expenses and income. We're an LLC incorporated in NYC. Band expenses typically include food, gas, merch supplies (shirts, blank CDs etc) and the occasional cash withdrawals, but the big anticipated purchase is a van (used -- no more than $5k). Suggestions for checking accounts also welcome...

How do I get involved playing in a band?

I want to either start or join a band that plays a wide variety of things. I'm interested in sort of a bricolage approach, where people are into trying or combining or improvising in a lot of different styles, or write songs. But I am happy playing whatever. I don't really care what comes out it, I just want to play music in a non-classical setting. I am classically trained and have played in old time music groups before, but that's it. How do I go about getting involved playing? I play fiddle, violin, viola, ukulele, and can sing. Do I ask friends? go on craigslist? Is there a website?

New singer, old name

The singer of my band (let's call him Justin) left the band about a year ago, just after we'd started a project with a theatre group, with whom we were going to perform a series of pieces. We really wanted to continue working on it, so we went looking for a replacement, and ultimately Justin himself hooked us up with somebody. The name of our band features quite prominently in this project, so we asked him if he would agree if we would keep using it. He said that was fine. [more inside]

Interview driving traffic to a website?

I have a two part question. I've just interviewed well known performer who has just released his first solo CD. He owns all of the rights to the lyrics and music, and his own company published the CD. A radio station I'm associated with plans to put the interview online, as well as broadcast it within the week. If the musician is OK with me putting it on my own website, how might it drive traffic to his site and my site? And is there anything extra I can to make it attract listeners and drive that traffic?

Post-punk Leonard Cohen?

Calling all indie music geeks... I need help identifying a band. iPhone update nuked all the downloaded music in my Rhapsody app. I was listening to a band that I liked a lot. Singer had sort of baritone, with interesting lyrics. Imagine a post-punk, slightly less-lackadaisical Leonard Cohen. Pretty sure record is relatively recent and band name has the word 'Future' in it. Any ideas?

But I know they're not Lost in the Trees

I heard this band I really liked when I was at work around 11pm central standard time, on Jimmy Fallon, two Fridays ago. They were a mostly African American band playing rock. I had my husband check the cable guide when he got home and he says that they were a band called Lost in the Trees. I looked them up and they are a white blue grass band. My google-fu has failed me. Who was this band I liked so much?
