AP.net Podcast: No Fees, No Problem (Episode 33)

Posted by - 01:13 AM on 05/09/14
This week on the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Zack and I sat down with Nate Dorough from Fusion Shows to talk some insider baseball about putting on shows, booking festivals, a whole lot of Brand New stuff (weird how many of my conversations somehow come back to this), and why Fusion Shows doesn't charge any services fees on tickets for their shows. We also talk a lot about Bled Fest, which is coming up in Michigan on May 24th. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies.

Bled Fest was great last year but this year didn't have enough to justify the travel for me.


Excited to listen to this

Wow, pleasantly surprised to see Nate and Fusion as the topic of the podcast. They do great things for the Michigan music scene, it's been great to see them grow so much-- especially in the last few years

Awesome to hear that aspect of live shows and such. Nate sounds like a cool guy and Bled Fest sounds sick! Had no idea it was in a school.

If I could start over again I would want to grow up to be Fusion Shows. They do great stuff for the Michigan music scene, and I'll never forget those Your Best Friend farewell shows.

If it weren't for Nate and the Fusion Shows team, I may have never gotten as extensively into the alternative/punk scene as I have. Fusion puts on some of the best shows in Michigan at some of the best venues - I'm truly blessed to know that guy.
