Brown Paper Tickets, facing claims by many artists who are owed money, says coronavirus pandemic led to systems failure

Seattle-based musician and producer Erin Jorgensen, like thousands of other artists around the world, is waiting for box-office money from past performances, owed by local ticket broker Brown Paper Tickets.

Artists and arts groups say money they expected from Seattle-based Brown Paper Tickets either didn’t arrive, or the checks bounced, or money was deposited, then got sucked back out of bank accounts. BPT says it and its bank lost control of which payments were able to clear and which weren’t.
