We knew Chris Haire was a liar, spineless coward, and unethical editor, why not a thief too? Fitting!
I'm torn with this, as a musician playing originals. It really does depend on the show. However, at least in Charleston, SC, it's difficult enough to get people to pay $5 for a show on a Friday or Saturday. Different story in larger markets. I think there are more factors to this too. This may work if you are a band that plays once every 2-6 months. Not going to work for a band that plays every 1-2 weeks. If people feel that they are going out to an event, that they can't witness again next week, they may be inclined to fork over that cover. Also, playing on smaller bills could help. One opener, one headliner. Instead of a stacked bill of 3-5 bands. And I don't think this is something across the board. When you can start pulling those 200-300 number from your band alone, then yes, by all means, charge the $10 cover. It's about putting in the work, gaining a following and delivering a show stopping performance. But if you are gathering 10-50 people per show, I don't see this happening in Charleston.
Barrel House Spirits Grand Opening will also feature a tasting with High Wire Distilling Co. and Autobahn Foodtruck!!!! Saturday 11-2pm.
Nice cover image, thief. Just when people thought Chris Haire couldn't stoop any lower… Stay "classy" CP!
Chris Haire and the CP should be ashamed of themselves. You print Mr. Hunter for years, and then throw him under the bus for your own personal gain when the moment presents itself. Mr. Hunter has worked very hard to get where he is today and will continue to do great work for the Liberty movement here in SC and nationally. I am sad to see him resign from his job with Rand Paul but at least he can now publicly defend himself against these hateful and jealous attacks. Undoubtedly the job offers have already started to pour in for Hunter in DC and elsewhere. I know of several businesses locally who will no long advertise with you and many others have made it their personal mission to toss out your repugnant paper anywhere they see it placed in town. I do hope to run into Mr. Haire one day...so I can tell him to his face what a lying, detestable human being he is...I just hope I have a full drink in my hand to toss in his face when I do it!
