Abstract

So you've got a band. You get gigs. You tour. No major deal, probably, but you've got some records out there. You here about This Thing Called China. You've heard they've got bands over there. You've heard that bands from towns just like yours have gone over there, played some gigs, put together a tour. You're not thinking 1.3 billion record sales, but you're thinking, "Hey, why not take a couple weeks and hit the road?"
