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.
Hope all is well. What's new? Well.. not much, but here's some stuff:
INTERNS...!!! Anybody want to help out at asian man? It's unpaid, but I will hook you up with free music and clothing. If you live in the bay area (San Jose would be even better) and want to help us do a bunch of mindless work while listening to punk rock, then please get in touch.
LEMURIA is finally touring the west coast. It's been over 2 years since their last visit, so I'm pretty excited to see them again. Here's the routing:
24th-Riverside, CA @ TBA
25th-Los Angeles, CA @ Echo Curio
26th-Santa Cruz, CA @ The Crepe Place
27th-Stockton, CA @ Plea For Peace Center
28th-San Francisco, CA @ Bottom of the Hill
29th-Redding, CA @ TBA
30th-Portland, CA @ The Artistery
JULY 1st-Seattle, WA @ TBA
Maybe it's a good time to do an asian man show in the parking lot before the A's game?
Hmmmm… I guess I should look at the schedule this season.
Also, If you live in any of those areas and want to pass out flyers, get in touch.
Again, for those who pre-ordered the FIVE IRON FRENZY DVD... IT IS DELAYED!! All orders will ship MARCH 19th.
Sorry for the lack of contests, but here's an easy one to win a laura stevenson test press. We will have a random drawing for 5 winners. Just email us and include the following info.
SUBJECT: Laura Stevenson RULES!!
and that's it.
And finally, a quick question for y'all. I'm wondering if I were to put together an asian man tour, what bands would you want to see on it? And how much would you be willing to pay for a tour that has like 6 bands on it? Hmmmm... Let me know your thoughts.
