Strip Clubs As Focus Group Facilities
Well not quite, but an article on Yahoo! News looks at how music companies use strip bars to research, trial and promote their music:
The music industry increasingly has embraced the strip club out of necessity and convenience. Tighter radio playlists mean it’s harder than ever to break a track on the FM dial, and regular dance clubs — where songs get played for a moment and then lost in a mix — tend to play what’s already on the radio. At strip joints, DJs are able to play full tracks and can take a chance on underground and unproven material.
