It was awesome: Nataly crowd surfed for the first time ever, we sold just under 0,000 in tickets, and we got to rock out with people we love for a full month. They gave us three laptops (to run our light show) and a nice chunk of cash.
We sold 1129 tickets in San Francisco at the Fillmore. One question that our fans repeatedly asked us was “what does it feel like to have ‘made it’ as a band? All of that required an upfront investment from Nataly and me. We thanked them on stage for saving our asses and supporting indie music.
” Though it’s a fair question to ask of a band with a hundred million views on You Tube, the thought of Pomplamoose having “made it” is, to me, ridiculous. We don’t have a label lending us “tour support.” We put those expenses right on our credit cards. Some people think of brand deals as “selling out.” My guess is that most of those people are hobby musicians, not making a living from their music, or they’re rich and famous musicians who don’t need the income. We knew it would be an expensive endeavor, and we still chose to make the investment.
