The touring world prides itself on being flexible and able to pivot on a moments notice, no matter what the challenge. In this new normal, some have turned to drive-in shows to keep live music alive. In this week’s episode we are joined by some of the crew for Canadian band July Talk(including our own Doug Wilson) to reflect on their two sold out nights at a drive in near Toronto.

Tour Management: Personal Finance for the concert industry

We had a fantastic TM 101 session yesterday about personal finance for folks who work in touring & live events. Even though we're not working right now, this is 100% applicable (and addressed in the session). Our guests laid everything out so comprehensively & clearly - I encourage you to watch. Thanks to A. Espinosa & Kelly Brennan-Kleyn for joining us and sharing their expertise!
