Salmonella Dub LIVE with Soulsystem & guests…

This short Spring Break run over Labour Weekend is the first of the summer series from Salmonella Dub LIVE with a fresh look based on the OG Salmonella Dub we all want!!!

The line up has been designed to suit this tour specifically with Soulsystem making appearances throughout & the exciting inclusion of Mt Eden Dubstep at Managwhai Tavern.  Expect guest DJs, vocalists & MCs including DJ Rude Boy & the Mighty Asterix & other familiar faces…

The band have pulled out some special stops with a show at the Cabana in Napier on Thursday 21st October for a limited 250 audience – an intimacy that has not been offered by the group in some time.

Palmerston North is a great small venue event at the Colesseum on Friday 22nd with a capacity of 500 in relative plush surrounds… likewise the capacity of the Woolshed Tavern on the afternoon of Sunday 24th in Reporoa.  The 2 venues are the extremely different & this shows a level of diversity & intimacy that Salmonella Dub has with its local audiences.

Mangawhai Tavern on Saturday 23rd October at 7pm – doors to the DUB!!!  Salmonella Dub supported by Soulsystem & Mt Eden Dubstep & guests!!! BIIGGG!!!!  For those who want to mix it with the masses – MANGAWHAI!!!!

ARTIVIST : creative has completed a further series of performances & proactively contracting Salmonella Dub LIVE engagements…

Salmonella Dub & ARTIVIST : creative continue to make strategic bookings into significant events with recent bookings including Raggamuffin & Homegrown confirmed…

ARTIVIST : creative will continue to develop content & production for independent events while the band plays major dates that create large scale exposure & promotion.

“… this is a very nice arrangement for ARTIVIST : creative, to be involved directly with our favourite premier groups in New Zealand with a real potential to make an impact!” Creative Director JoFF Rae says… “Salmonella Dub have some real surprises to unfold over the next few months!”





ARTIVIST : contracting based on the Nash Equilibrium

2 08 2010

Recently ARTIVIST : creative has developed a series of contracts that involve a shared risk/shared profit that helps venues & artists achieve a common goal – successful events!

subgame perfect Nash equilibrium

The contract, developed for Salmonella Dub, lowers standard deposits & works on a percentage break of gross profit; both the artist & the venue need to expel effort to maximise returns & both benefit greatly by working together to achieve this success.

“We modelled the contract at a couple of gigs earlier this year & it went well… since then a major festival has picked up the idea & it was essential in securing acts” says JoFF Rae of the contract… “the key is to make an agreement & see the benefits to yourself & to others in the equation & stick to it through to delivery – possibly a practical example of the Nash Equilibrium.

The Nash Equilibrium – informal definition:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Informally, a set of strategies is a Nash equilibrium if no player can do better by unilaterally changing his or her strategy. To see what this means, imagine that each player is told the strategies of the others. Suppose then that each player asks himself or herself: “Knowing the strategies of the other players, and treating the strategies of the other players as set in stone, can I benefit by changing my strategy?”

If any player would answer “Yes”, then that set of strategies is not a Nash equilibrium. But if every player prefers not to switch (or is indifferent between switching and not) then the set of strategies is a Nash equilibrium. Thus, each strategy in a Nash equilibrium is a best response to all other strategies in that equilibrium.[3]

The Nash equilibrium may sometimes appear non-rational in a third-person perspective. This is because it may happen that a Nash equilibrium is not Pareto optimal.

The Nash equilibrium may also have non-rational consequences in sequential games because players may “threaten” each other with non-rational moves. For such games the Subgame perfect Nash equilibrium may be more meaningful as a tool of analysis.
