Have to feel sorry for some of the owners of bars. Ya I know some of them are real slime bags, but thats not the point. Ever since the smoke legisalation has been in place the bars are more empty than ever. In fact, a lot of them have lost so much business that they have had to shut their doors. The bars who are trying to make a go of it have had to spend $$ to build smoking areas, or outside facilities to have smokers enjoy their habits. Now, come May, even the bars who have constructed designated smoking areas will no longer be able to use them. Go talk to a bar owner and try to get your band booked. You get the same response every time. No bands...can't afford it.....people aren't comming out anymore...it's because of the non smoking legisaltion. Puts a real dent in the live club scene. Sucks.
