You’ll find this week’s On the Record column from The Ticket here. “The main reason why the acts are here is that they’re hoping for a break. The acts hope that a passing manager, record label, lawyer or agent will take an interest in them and get them into the fast lane. They want to be the ones who get the calls from the brand managers and private-party operators. They want to be the ones who get paid.”
