The life of a touring artist isn't what most people expect, and underground music is increasingly becoming DIY. Because of this, today's touring musicians need to know how touring actually works. Artists must fill the shoes of not only performer, but as tour manager, merch guy, roadie, and much, much more. Learning how to manage so many different positions doesn't come easy, but with time and experience, one can learn to succeed in these roles. #DUDEWHATSTOURLIKE aims to help artists transition to life on the road, and entertain them while they learn.
Featuring helpful tips, tricks, illustrations, and anecdotes of some of the strangest on-the-road run-ins, #DUDEWHATSTOURLIKE is required reading for any aspiring or beginning touring artist. No matter the genre of music, the advice is universal, and the stories will be interesting to anyone who's ever wondered what their favorite musicians do when the lights go down and they step off the stage.
