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.
Wednesday! Woop Woop!
So last week, I had asked for feedback on a good lineup for an asian man tour. And as my inbox started to flood, I realized a couple things:
A. We have a lot of friggin bands
B. We have a lot of friggin bands with varying styles
C. Do I really have to write back to all these people?
Well, I tried to write everyone back, but if I didn't I apologize. So here's some ideas that I did find helpful and hope we can put together. Lots of you discussed doing an acoustic tour. Something I've done quite a bit myself and with the large number of acoustic artists, I could see us doing something like that quite easily. So look for something creative and not so run of the mill type of tour like all the other acoustic tours being put together.
Other interesting things to me at least were the number of people interested in seeing MU330. That made me most happy as I love them so much and wish they were still an active band, but unfortunately I don't see that happening any time soon. Mostly due to the fact that Dan lives in California now. Anyways, I was surprised how many people said they'd be willing to pay like $20-$30 for an asian man tour. That's crazy. I would never pay that much money to see a show. I am thinking of something along the lines of $8-$10. Got to keep it cheap. Like Chris Clavin from Plan-it-x says.. "IF IT AIN'T CHEAP, IT AIN'T PUNK". I like that. Cause I'm cheap.
But yeah, I'd like to put together two tours. One acoustic and one for the rock bands. Hmmmm... Not sure exactly, but just thoughts crossing my mind right now. And hopefully I'll put something together that will be fun and exciting. So stay tuned. Also, this wouldn't happen until the fall/winter.
Daylight savings starts this Sunday. And as I gaze out the window, I see blue skies and the excitement of summer warmth gives me a smile so big that you will be scared at the sight. Blah blah blah... Summer=Warm=T-shirts... AND so let's do some t-shirt sales! The following shirt will be $8 until we run out of them. So order now before it's too late.

Ok, so I've got a bunch of overstock on the ASIAN MAN LOGO T-SHIRT in size Large. If this happens to be your size shirt, then you win the prize. You will get a large asian man shirt and a box of random cd's (at least 10). The cd's will be a combination of other labels cd's, asian man cd's and demos. I've got about 80 shirts, so get this while you can.
MIKE PARK RUNS THIS FRIGGIN COMPANY SALE-$17
This is what you get: A MIKE PARK TOTE BAG-These are high quality bags that you take to the grocery store or shopping or to school and you save the environment. You know what I'm talking about right? What else do you get? You get both Mike Park full length CD'S "FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC" and "NORTH HANGOOK FALLING". What else do you get? A Mike Park T-SHIRT(Sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL). And I will also throw in a random Chinkees record so you can hear the love of SKA in me too. Normally this would cost $46.
Alright, that's it for now. Be well friends.
