DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS?-All of you who book shows across the United States or actually anywhere in the world, get in touch. Trying to build a good network of DIY venues/promoters for Asian Man Records bands. So get in touch if you can help with booking. mikeparkmusic@gmail.com

TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man cds, shirts, etc. What free stuff you ask?? Basically
anything..if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah….anything. Let’s trade!! Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade. BOOYAH!!

HEY! HO! LET’S GO!
Happy Thursday. What a beautiful day here in San Jose. Makes me super duper happy!! WOO HOO!.. Anyways, here we go…..

Pre-orders for the WILD’s new full length album “Dreams Are Maps” and PET SYMMETRY’s “Two Songs About Cars. Two Songs With Long Titles” 7” are both up for pre-order on the asian man site.

The Pet Symmetry record features Evan Weiss from Into It. Over It and Erik Czaja and Marcus Nuccio from Dowsing. The 7” is friggin good. Just imagine that great Midwest pop punk sound, but just done right. You can check out a track here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWcPSFOVgAw&feature=share&list=UUgb_VNaXqPf1Di-kBfP9V6g

The first pressing is on random colored vinyl and there are 700 of these made. These will be gone soon. I hadn’t realized how fanatical Into It. Over It. and Dowsing fans were about vinyl. The band announced it yesterday and we’ve sold more than 400 without any mention on our end. WOWZA. So yeah, if you want to get this then you better hurry. FUN FUN

THE WILD from Atlanta, GA. Have graced us with the most beautiful follow up record anybody could ask for. The band headed south to Laura Jane Grace’s studio with Laura gracing her production to what is now “DREAMS ARE MAPS”. Everything about the record is beautiful. From the Gatefold jacket designed by Dianna Settles from the Wild, to the amazing song writing, to the performance, to the production, and blah blah blah.

We’ve set up a few different package deals for the WILD album. It’s all detailed on the asian man site.

Okay… I think that’s it for today. Oh yes, one last thing. Myself and Dan Potthast are flying out to New Orleans tomorrow to participate in the COMMUNITY RECORDS BLOCK PARTY festival, so if any of you friends live out there, please come out and say hello. It’s always fun being surrounded by nice and friendly people.
Peace always, Mike Park
