Gas Prices Hurting Indie Bands, Tours

This jumped at me from Yahoo's front page. We're all feeling the pain of insanely high gas prices, but no one feels it more acutely than the indie bands emptying their savings to tour.

Yeah, it's definitely got to be hard on them. Driving long distances between gigs and lugging all of their gear around has to be costing them nearly everything they're earning. Poor indie bands... :(

Hey I have sympathy and solidarity for indie bands for a whole buncha reasons. But here in the UK we pay well over $10 per gallon and have done for years. Drive cars with smaller engines, you guys......
