The Bowery monopoly in this city is fucking insane. Anyone who says this company is indie is blind.

what exactly do being big and being independently owned have to do with each other?

As I'm sure you wiseasses know, I think what Anon 1:50 meant was having an independent spirit. Getting big is good, but when you start booking artists like Iron & Wine, She & Him, Caetano Veloso, who should be playing either intimate or at least seated venues, at your shitty in-house venue Terminal 5, it shows that excessive greed has taken over.

amazing that people on here don't have a better concept of how things are booked. artists or their management approve every aspect of a live show. if they are playing a certain venue, it's because they want to.

Actually you seem to not have a very good idea of how shows are booked. Yes, artist management approves the venues, but more often than not promoters show them the way and they do not always know any better. If Erykah Badu is playing theaters everywhere, but that shithole Roseland Ballroom instead of a place like Radio City in NYC, Live Nation is mostly to blame. They bring the venue to the table because it hardly costs anything for them to book shows at Roseland. I very much doubt Badu or her management prefer Roseland, but they likely went along with it after being offered that. Live Nation saves money, her management possibly saves some but not as much, fans pay pretty much the same price but get the shitty venue experience.

Badu lives in NYC. If she didn't want to play Roseland, she wouldn't.

No matter where they live, artists usually know a lot less about venues than most people would think. If they put you in the VIP section every time you go to a show, you would care a lot less where the show is. If you don't like the venue your favorite artists are playing, promoters are mostly to blame.
