This is a series of video interviews, nearly two hours, with Erinn Knight the manager of The Silver Comet who just returned from the 2012 Vans Warped Tour. The series of interviews will be all about the lessons and experiences they learned preparing for the tour and while on the road. I know there will be some great information for young bands about DIY survival. This is going to be really interesting. This is not a band with a TON of money, a BIG record deal… this is a band of talented kids who got a huge break and had to figure out how to survive and support themselves on the road in order to pursue their dream. This band could be any young band out there.
