RE: cheap concerts

As a musician who has played in both a "big band" jazz band and a concert band "wind symphony", I understand that. Both of them receive funding from local governments. However, that doesn't make them free or cheap - the cost is simply moved to somewhere else (via taxes) where it's less obvious.

I don't have any disagreement with the concept of government subsidizing the arts, but the moment someone files a lawsuit alleging that their neighborhood hip-hop group is being discriminated against subsidy-wise, things will get very complicated very quickly.
