DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS? - All of you who book shows across the United States, get in touch with me please. Asian Man Records bands want to tour, so get in touch if you can help with booking. firstname.lastname@example.org
TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco?? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man Records 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.
Here we go again...
FIVE IRON FRENZY DVD is delayed. The street date for stores will now be APRIL 13th, but pre-orders will be shipping on MARCH 19th. So you'll still get your stuff way before the stores do. But yup... Reese wasn't able to finish in time, so he made this apology via youtube. You can catch it here: youtube.com/watch?v=tYJIuPwTLcA
We are going to do the digital only release of I SING THE BODY ELECTRIC. Not familiar? Well, don't worry.. not many people are. But it's fantastic stuff by a man named Morgan Herrell. He is the co-lead vocalist for the Hard Girls and also the bass player for the Classics of Love. He has been recording these solo gems for the last few years and he has compiled 7 ep's that we will start releasing in JUNE. One a month until they're all out. You can listen to some songs here: myspace.com/istbe
Laura Stevenson and the Cans (minus the cans) are headed to the UK and EUROPE in JUNE. I am helping book the tour, so if you happen to live in the UK or EUROPE and can help with any shows, please get in touch. It would be much appreciated. But here's what we have thus far:
3rd-WEINER NEUSTADT, AUSTRIA
-if you can help, please email me at email@example.com
The Hot Toddies new album "Get Your Heart On" will now be coming out on June 15th. It was earlier slated for May 11th, but they need a little extra time to finish recording.
We are proud to announce that we will be making a $2,100 donation to Partners In Health and another $777.92 to Doctors Without Borders through our Haiti Package we were selling and through numerous test pressings we auctioned off. I know it's easy to become complacent in our safety net thousands of miles away, but hopefully we can continue to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti and also to all of those in need around the world and at home.
Be well friends.
So here's what we got coming out... please mark your calendars:
