Indie band survival guide

I love this stuff: Beatnik Turtle's indie band survival guide:

We found, when we started out years ago, that there weren’t enough bands that shared what they'd learned. The information that we found useful was scattered in different magazines, books, and all over the Internet. After doing all of that research, and going through the inevitable issues that a band faces, we decided to write about what goes on behind the scenes, and collect it in one place.

There's some really great stuff here. Be sure to check out the band's Backstage Blog, too. (Can you say "Napsterize knowledge?")
