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. email@example.com
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. Lets trade!!
Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade.
We sold out of the Matt Skiba pre-order packages yesterday. So if youve been trying to order and cant find the package link.....well, thats the reason. We have put up links where you can buy the CD and LP(black) individually. So if youve been waiting to just order individual copies without the package, its now available. We too will ship these pre-orders before the street date, so yup.. fun fun fun
We will be releasing a 7inch from THE SAINTE CATHERINES from Montreal, Quebec. It will feature two unreleased songs and will be titled “Dead Dogs”. We’re looking at an end of year release date for this. But yup.. I had a chance to meet them in England around 7 years ago and they were awesome people. Its exciting to have something by them on Asian Man. Well update more info. as it comes through. But here are their tour dates coming up and yeah… more FUN FUN

A lot of people have been asking about a SUNDOWNER pre-order. Well, we hope to have something available in about two weeks time. Just waiting for Chris to give us the ok on stuff. So stay tuned for a similar deal to the SKIBA package.
Anybody book shows in the Southern California area? The Hot Toddies want to do some shows the weekend of September 3rd-6th. If you are able to book something for them, please get in touch.
Laura Stevenson arrived in England yesterday. Her first shows east of the atlantic. If you happen to be going to see her or know people in England, please spread the word about her shows. Remember, word of mouth is all we have going for us. You can check out her dates at myspace.com/laurastevenson
And lastly…. Anyone living in the SAN JOSE area. Tomorrow, the SKATALITES are playing a free show at Cesar Chavez Park in beautiful downtown San Jose. Starts at 6 PM and goes til 9 PM. Even though theres only 3 members still alive, it’s hard not to want to see Lloyd Knibbs on drums. He basically invented that SKA one drop.
Anyways, Im excited so thought Id share the info. in case you didnt know they were playing.
Peace, mike park
