Usually, no artist gets any mo money until the advance is realized by the
investor, record company or other. Then money is payed on a
schedule accoring to share of sales.

Most people playing a livin get heir money from a variety of sources...gig
money, part time job, t-shirt sales, record sales, royalties, grants, girl
friends, patrons, students, mom and dad.. every little bit helps. When
someone would tip the band 10 or twenty bucks I used to say thanks for
gasoline, it really helps. and it does.
When your clicking on all cylinders life is good. when you are living
cheaply, a hundred bucks
is half a weeks pay and has impack.. in that way things seem insignificant
to one are immense to others.
Personally, I don't care how one obtains my music, long as they understand
what is happenning
with the music. To me that is the only thing of importance.
