I go to house concerts often, maybe 4-6 times a year. I rarely pay more than $20 for a concert, and I feel that's a bargain if the concert is good. If I were attending the performance of a big-name performer, it would cost me $50 or more; and the performance might not be as good as a house concert with somebody like Deb Cowan or Mark Graham or Seamus. Since I'm getting such a great bargain, I figure I owe the performer something - so I buy CDs. Makes me feel good, and it gives them some income. For a number of performers, I've bought everything they've recorded. So, pnelson, if you've got qualms - buy CDs.
