Chris Sez: The Band Is On When?

When you go to the cinema, you know when the film starts. When you buy a tin of beans in the shop, it’ll say what it costs. The price on the tin is 30p. It doesn’t say between 20p and 40p.

The point I’m getting at is the trend for some promoters and venues not to give performance times for their gigs. The argument is that punters will come to their venues when doors open and watch all bands, not just the headliner if performance times aren’t given in advance. Conversely not all punters can get to gigs early if they are working or have other commitments, so knowing when bands are on allows them to plan their evening accordingly and also if travelling to a gig away from where they live, they need to know roughly when a gig ends so they can plan journeys.

What do you think? Good or bad idea?
