    This crap always pisses me off. I understand that sometimes recordings or tours can inspire both donors and musicians and so can sometimes be justified, but this is like getting a special expensive paint job on a car only to discover you don’t have any money leftover for gas and oil changes.

    Tours are expensive vanity. Boring old ongoing expenses should be a higher priority.
