This just in:

"Austin American Statesman (Michael Corcoran's column) announces that Maggie Mae's on 6th street plans to 'experiment with a policy that requires bands to put up a deposit in order to be booked'.
Club owner Bill Shea said the band's would get their deposit back if they drew enough people.
The Federation of Musicians has seen this happen in California where it has now evolved into a situation whereby in many cities all the groups have to pay the clubs to play. I urge all of you to write or call Bill Shea at Maggie Mae's and let him know we will not tolerate this in Austin, Texas.
The Telephone Number is: (512) 478-8541. Their Fax No. is: (512) 472-1764.
Also, forward this message to your e-mail list (especially other musicians) and encourage them to speak out against this." The word is out on the streets people Maggie Mae's is going to start requiring a deposit against your guarantee.
This is WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! Nip this shit in the bud. Boycott Maggie Mae's. Shut their asses down. We are not going to take this crap from anybody.
Please help prevent Austin from becoming LA. "
