If you and your artist friend are comfortable with it, offer them a couch to crash on or buy them dinner when they come through town. They will save a ton on accommodation and you’ll get a little hang time in.
If we make it easier for artists to make a living in the beginning maybe the road to the “Big break” won’t be so bumpy. Remember, you are helping to affect change on a bigger scale than you realize. If you support your friends not only can they take care of themselves and their loved ones but also bring happiness and awareness to the world around them.
