Afton got me my first gig at Studio Seven in Seattle, Wa. I really appreciated all the work they did for me in finding a venue and booking other acts and overall putting together the show. I was compensated fairly for playing and everything seemed to work out. I was hoping to get a 30 minute set but when I got to the venue I was scheduled for 20 which was not communicated to me by any Afton staff. The show manager was very preoccupied the entire show with I'm still not sure what (and still not sure if she was the actual afton rep as she made no introduction). She came to the venue 30 minutes after I was supposed to be present for artist check in. I take all this into account and I can infer that it was still the most positive experience I probably could have had in this industry as not many people are willing to do you any favors.
