Raise your hand

...if you know anything about music promotion. Specifically, how to go about creating an interest for your favourite band in hopes of assuring a sell-out tour in 4 months. I'm talking about media coverage, airplay, that sort of thing -- even though I spent some time on the 'Net collecting gig listing sites and streams, I'm not really sure what I'm doing. Any hints, ideas and previous experience gratefully accepted.

it's gorgeous I haven't seen it before .. and the track is one of my ultra faves too .. ESPECIALLY live - just guh.

Absolutely - I mentioned Kirsty's post somewhere in amongst my ramblings because she was so helpful .. and it would be great to have her be able to pimp Manchester - here's hoping!

though dammit I can no longer listen to the station on my PC - it all broke. grr


Thanks for picking up the net links btw :) .. if you'd prefer to do the radio? .. you could grab it instead *s*

Now have 11 people for the team (Kat has just got in touch) I wonder if after her it would be good to close the door to actual "members" - too many cooks? too complicated to coordinate? and then just recruit more people if they want to be involved - at the time when actual flyering and stuff is needed? - what's your opinion?

Actually, I was already thinking that maybe we should close the door after Emma, but didn't feel like I should say that on the MB without running the risk of spoiling anyone's fun/treading on someone's toes. 10 is a manageable number (just about), but at present, even for 10 we may not have enough to do. We will, however, need a lot more people by the time it comes to flyering and pestering radio stations with requests -- say from mid-Sept onwards.

Kat volunteered? I thought she was pleading extreme poverty as a reason not to come see the boys this time round? Has she found a solution to that little problem, then?

Why? Doesn't Nai want to have a crack at it? She was so quick to find Radio Jackie, I'm sure she could find more -- how about Oxford student radio? There must be one! And I know she's worried about it being Fresher's Week -- but all my mates who went to Oxford never let that get in the way of a good party, so she should definitely coordinate the flyering and postering around the colleges. Tori can handle Glasgow (please let the boys go there again, too!) and target all the Scots...and Geoff -- what can we let Geoff do?
