Some artists care about how they sound and want to be treated like human beings! I get what he's saying. Who would want to play a show on a stage that looks like a giant Dorritos vending machine and not get paid a single penny for it? There is an enormous amount of money being spent at SXSW and rarely do artists get paid for these gigs. I love SXSW (amazing artists, BBQ, tacos, free beer everywhere), but I totally feel what he's saying. I'd love to see at least some of the $800+ I spend on a music badge trickling down to the artists.
