This metal promoter needs your help. £15k of it - but why should you pay?Podcast #23 - James Loveday's plight
Why should you help a metal promoter who’s lost money?
That’s the big question behind Episode 23 of the Metal Insight Podcast.
James Loveday runs The Distortion Project. For 16 years this small promotion business has brought an incredible list of bands here.
But things haven’t been working out lately. And in January, James took to Go Fund Me to ask for help. Big help. Fifteen thousand pounds of help.
Metal Gigs: Business Or Charity?
Loads of people have chipped in with their support. It’s a measure of how much his many years of work is valued in the scene here.
But wait a minute: isn’t this giving free money to a business? Why should a metal promoter be bailed out for making choices that didn’t turn good?
In this really candid interview, Metalireland’s Earl Grey and Donal McBrien talk to James about the extent to which he’s in a tough spot. It will surprise you.
