on Saturday "hey man i've got a gig for you next Saturday at PLAY nightclub, it'll be an opening set." I was like yea sure i'll do it, but let me know the compensation beforehand so there's no surprises the day of.
Next thing I know he asks me for my information and logo n shit, so I send it to him.
Today (5 days later) he sends me the event invite on FB, gets my name wrong on the poster and phones me saying he found out what my pay is going to be. SO i was like ok what is it? he says "the pay is going to be $100 to open and it's contingent on you bringing 25 ppl out to the event." So I say, no I'm not going to do it if my $100 is contingent on bringing 25ppl out to this 400capacity club when there are a total of 4 DJs and I'm just opening. Not to mention it's Halloween Saturday, what kind of promoters do you have if you need me to guarantee 25 people on a night like that?
I was like I can make over $150 just promoting and getting 25 people out, this is ridiculous. I'm a DJ not a promoter, I haven't promoted in over 4 years, you never said I would be required to promote. Anyway I told him thank you for thinking of me but that I just don't do that and it wasn't a right fit for me.
