This has been around the block a few times, but its always great to talk about absurdity of venues looking to use musicians.  A craigslist ad on a variation of this Dave Goldberg open letter has circulated around facebook for a while, but it is not nearly as eloquent as this version in whole.


Dave Goldberg’s open letter via grassrootsy.


One of our founding fathers (no, not Keith Richards, but he might have been there), I believe it was Ben Franklin, said, “We must hang together, or surely we’ll hang separately.”


Musicians, hang tough on your rate.


On a lighter note, Ben Franklin also said, “Beer is proof that there is a God, and he wants us to be happy.”
