Marty: You hit it on the head, too many artists, too little gigs. Add to that the fact that New York has become the nightmare of capitolism unrestrained, where only the most generally popular is fostered, so you get the biggest audiences - the road to the quick buck, and there is vertually no helping the little guy. Once we had CEDA grants, part of the Johnston war on poverty. Like the WPA we were able to establish experimental clubs build new audiences, it just is not happening the way it was. Shoulda been born to rap about sexist violent issues I suppose. Ah well, what can you do. Larry
