Give 'em one or two killer shows at your old rates - then raise your rates to what they should be for next year. After a couple iPod dances with no tight bass, and few or no lights they may reconsider. If not, move on. I did.
(Better off without a Wife - Tom Waits)
All my friends are married
every Tom and Dick and Harry
you must be strong
if you're to go it alone
here's to the bachelors
and the bowery bums
and those who feel that they're the ones
who are better off without a wife
I like to sleep until...
