If you've been stuck in a Canadian snowstorm or an Austin heatwave on the road, you know these are not the kind of experiences you want to relive. Sure, they're funny stories for a bit, but canceled shows mean you don't get paid. Mother nature can be a homie to us most of the time, but she can really turn on us and wreak havoc when she so desires.
Since my company, Audio Blood, is based in Canada, we've learned to tough it out, but we've also learned to keep a good eye on when we can get the heck out of our chilly country, which is why it's important to know the best and worst times to make the most out of your touring schedule. Now, for a bit of perspective, this is ideal for those bands in colder climates and seasonal opportunities, but the logic can be easily applied to anyone in North America.
