Help me organize
    #1098385 - 11/30/02 02:35 PM (14 years, 10 days ago)

So my band Skultamaphon is playing a gig on December 26th. We played there recently but had only two weeks notice and only got about 30 people to show up for us. Well this time we need 100... so besides pushing tickets what else is a good way to get people to show? Does anyone know of any online heavy metal zines or message board or anything of that sort where I could attract some people?
Yeah this one's gonna kick ass. If you live anywhere near Northern Virginia you should come... just because the bigger the turnout the better especially for this gig. After this gig we are dropping our loser asshole pessimistic perpetually whining drummer and getting our old drummer back and then going into the studio to record our album. From there who knows.... but right now, I just need some promotional resources...can you help?

Change the name of your band to "Free Beer!" So the marquee outside will say:

Tonight, Free Beer! :grin:

:grin: Hehe...good idea... though the club depends on their three (3) bars on either side of the stage to make most of their money. I dun think they take too kindly to that... heh

Yeah or I'll just go to the local college and pass out flyers with free beer on them. Of course with small print.  :grin:

After I read this:

"After this gig we are dropping our loser asshole pessimistic perpetually whining drummer and getting our old drummer back and then going into the studio to record our album."

I laughed so hard I choked!

:grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

In the bands I used to play in they always said two things:

"We shoot every third drummer."

"Play that other beat you know."
:grin:

Promotion huh?  Doesn't your area have a weekly free music rag that you could advertise it?  That's what most bands here do.  Either that or the club advertises.

> "We shoot every third drummer."

Q: What's the difference between a pig and a drummer?
A: The pig won't stay up all night to fuck the drummer! :shocked: :grin:

Q: What's it mean when drool is coming out of both sides of the drummer's mouth?
A: The stage is level... :wink:

firsts of all, you gotta post that shit in every forum. then, make a badass flyer and just pass it around friends.

or make a badass flyer and go to a movie, then run through that bitch screaming and throwing flyers through the air. just one quick, loud pass right next to the movie screen. stick one on the movie screen...

Hang out on street corners in the club/bar area and hand out flyers to everyone who passes by

Hang up some of these flyers inside the venue that you playing at and also other bars and places that have live entertainment.

Make it really visually attractive. Color if possible.

Good luck!
