The old fashioned way of showing one's appreciation when it comes to enjoying a live performance, especially in smaller venues, has all but disappeared while the income these artists make largely remains the same -- but a digital tip jar can help. A startup based in Austin, Texas, which is rife with good music, has created a clever system to help audiences give back to hose who put on a good show.

Dubbed TipCow, the digital tip jar essentially creates a direct connection between artist and fan. Once an artist signs up with the service, all they need to do is inform their fans via a stage shoutout or through social media. For the long haul, however, the digital tip jar hopes to expand in other ways.
