Overall afton is a great and effective way to gain exposure for local artists. They have consistent shows lined up and there is no obligation. If youre an artist who has the drive for promotion and can get out there but dont have the budget to start doing shows, this is the way to go. *Order thermal tickets* I say this because they are basically free if you want to work for it. Sell enough tickets and get refunded your money. I would recommend Afton for any aspiring artists. The only problem is that you can never speak on the phone. Well at Least I Haven't. Its all done through email so if you have questions it might take a day to get back to you, But its never posed a huge problem with me.
