If you are the type of band who prides yourself on your live show one of the most obvious things to do is to allow fans to tape your live show. Surprisingly, it seems to be a shocking thing when bands actually allow this. Drugged out hippie rock sophomore slumpers, MGMT, recently made the decision to make taping section at their shows in order to encourage this activity. In an age where groups are trying to get everyone to share their content as much as possible, encouraging fans to tape and then post your concerts seems like an obvious move. Giving fans the hint to do so will only spread the word about your awesome live show. Don’t follow the dinosaurs of this industry, encourage live taping.
