I would disagree with this if the money was going to Bamboozle, but its not. Cool opportunity for a band to have the biggest show of their life. I can see this going to 10k+.

Cool to see the scene helping Chi out, but this seems a little odd to me.

For some reason CIWWAF comes to mind....

Wow. It's only at $400 right now... Hell, if it doesn't get any higher than that, I'll freakin buy it. I imagine someone will offer a huge sum at the end.

One thing I don't understand, and I ask this with utmost respect: How is Chi Cheng not able to afford medical care?

why would you disagree if it went to bamboozle? bands and clubs sell their opening slots to smaller bands all the time...

Great cause but with some of the bands playing it, haven't they basically auctioned it off the highest bidder?

I would disagree because it wouldn't be an equal opportunity. It would be who ever has the biggest trust fund gets it. According to John's article in Alt Press that is not what he supports. Bamboozle is an equal(kind of) opporturtunity employer haha.

who is going to pay a shit load of money to play a show that only their fans would care about? if this was the slot before the headliners then it would be worth it, but if its the opening one then its not worth the money.
it is a good idea in theory but only a stupid band would do. they can spend their money in more important places. paying a thousand dollars for ads on websites and ads in magazines would get you a far bigger and better audience.
