“I have the stage, who will provide the rest?” No event organiser would probably put it so provocatively, but times have changed. Just a few event organisers still look for a band as they used to do, book the musicians for an evening and pay a fixed fee.
When we hear about bands being asked for a cucumber salad, i.e. a part of catering, we wonder if collectively organised concerts might be the salvation of the live underground scene. Of course, one cucumber salad cannot save a club, but maybe we are witnesses to an advancement of the live scene.
