The fine art of saying “No”

Continuing his series on being a small independent promoter in Birmingham Dunc Autumnstore discusses the fine art of saying “No” to bands who want a gig.

When I do get a chance to reply and I’m saying no, then I always try and encourage bands to self-promote, as I seriously think that this is the way that things have to change in order to address the imbalance between the number of gigs there are available and the number of gigs which bands are available to play.
