Last week, we went to see Denver thrashers Havok open for English Dogs in Oakland.

Afterward, we had a quick chat with drummer Pete Webber and guitarist Reece Scruggs — not only about the usual stuff like today’s music biz and social media, but also about a sweet deal they hashed out with English Dogs beforehand that saved them $1000’s on this tour!

Moral of the story: Always be creative when making deals — it could end up putting a lot more money in your pocket!
