Give him an option maybe. If he wanted to buy it at your show for $5-10 and getting the packaging or wanting to buy it in a store but if quality of a music reaches a point online where it sounds as good as anywhere else, I mean I don't like paying for records either. When it gets down to it, most of the time I don't. As long as kids keep coming to the show, buying a ticket and wanting to experience the music with me in a setting like this then they can have it for free.
