riders are funny things

My first internship when I was in college was at a concert booking agency. Which was cool because I got hooked up with free stuff like passes to see Bjork and I also got to read tour riders all day. Riders are basically a chance for egomaniac rock stars to demand all the comforts of home (well, if your home was a five star hotel) and then some. And while you can ask for the world and a half with a rider, odds are you'll never even get half of it. Though I really wanted to get Tally Hall some hummos and nice white folded towels for their sin-e show, it never actually happened.

Anyways, here is a segment from Liam and Me's rider that I found quite awesome.
