Startup lets fans tell bands where to play

Fans attend the performance of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at Lollapalooza on August 4, 2007 in Chicago, IL.

Summer festival season is approaching its end, which means bands are getting ready for fall touring season. These days hitting the road is where the real money is at, as long as people actually show up to see you play.

That's where tech startup Rabbl hopes to come in. The website allows bands to book shows by setting attendance goals and seeing if enough fans will sign up.

Sean Greenhalgh, drummer for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Rabbl CEO Wade Lagrone join Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
