Bad Band Etiquette

So I was doing a pickup gig with The Moneymaker Shakers on Friday night at a certain club after a certain artist . We were scheduled to hit at 1:30 a.m. At 1:30 a.m. certain artist announced, "That's the end of set two, we'll be back in 15 minutes for set three." Now, regardless of the fact that our gig at certain club had been cancelled the previous week due to a double booking with certain artist, the situation I described is bad band etiquette on the part of both aforementioned parties.

Here I'll explain the correct etiquette.

If you're a certain artist and you've played two hours already, it's 1:30 a.m. and there's another band scheduled to play after you, GET OFF THE STAGE.

If you manage a certain club and a certain artist has played two hours, it's 1:30 a.m. and the band scheduled for 1:30 a.m. is ready to go, YOU THANK CERTAIN ARTIST FOR TWO GREAT SETS AND PUT THE SCHEDULED BAND ONSTAGE.

That's all I have to say about that.

I saw this scene in the subway station today. Is it indicative of a worsening economy, or simply entrepreneurial exhibitionism?
