Actually, it's the opposite - It takes a significant population to get people out to this kind of show (keep in mind that these bands sell 500 copies a record WORLDWIDE) unless you tirelessly/endlessly promote. Even then, it's no guarantee you'll find any success doing it. I've lived in a lot of small towns, and I know of a few where this worked, but those are anomalies AS WELL AS places where people practically killed themselves to make it work. And when that person/persons moved on, everything died instantly. It can be done, but you'd need to practically give your life to it. It's unnatural, like growing crops in the desert. It can be done, but you have to work really hard at it and be smart about it...not to mention lucky.
