The economics of touring

Is shocking to see rates yet alone those at that level, there’s a breakdown of the charges in a follow up tweet which is

for those asking -
30% for soft merch (anything that isn’t recorded music)
10% for music
5% for using their card scanners
6% for sales tax
even though i am traveling w my cousin who is selling merch this would have also been a forced venue sell

41 % is soft 21% on records

gross, and at a venue which positions itself as non-profit.
