guitard: There’s a club in in Springfield, VA (just outside of Washington DC) that used to be called JAXX and is now called Empire.

I’ve filmed a few shows there and really hate that there are usually several warmup bands that come on before the main act (the one I want to film).The reason I hate it is because you pretty much have to film from the front row to get a good shot because of the low stage.So you have to get there early and grab a spot in the front row – and stand there for several hours while all the warmup bands drag through their sets.

I got to wondering why are there so many warmup bands – and why would the club want to pay all those bands when the vast majority of people are only there to see the headliner?A regular at the club told me all the warmup bands were paying to play – and then it all made sense.

So it’s not just something from the old club days – it’s still happening.

The bar owners want extra bands so they can sell more beer too! I remember back in the day going to club shows and the headliner was supposed to come on at nine,but didn’t till ten thirty just so they could sell those extra drinks.

But probably a good 80% of the crowd only shows up for the main act and time their arrival accordingly. So there really aren’t that many people to sell extra beer to while those warmup bands are playing.
