Artists will be compensated!

Every day, the company hosting our electronic press kit sends a couple of messages containing gig opportunities. Here's a sampling from today's inbox:
Don't miss your LAST CHANCE to submit to Bumbershoot, North America’s largest urban music and arts festival. Bumbershoot takes place at Seattle Center over Labor Day weekend. More than 250 scheduled events provide 150,000 attendees with an engaging mix of entertainment and spectacle. Selected artists will be compensated for their performances.
The emphasis is not mine, folks. The people taking submissions for a very well-known, very hip concertpalooza really wanted us to know they would pay us. Not that they'd pay us a whole lot, mind you ... just that they'd pay us.

This is why I keep my day job.

That is funny. I wonder who they got to play the music for "Mother 13."
