In today's 'connected' world there is really no excuse to neglect your own interests.
I never said bands shouldn't self promote. As a matter of fact I even mentioned posting information online so as to get the info to your fans. However, if you were "promoting" shows, but not doing any promotion it sounds like you were just paying a few hundred bucks for a show space and trying to make some quick cash by not doing anything.

I used to do weekly shows. I wasn't just doing local shows either, I'd bring in well known bands. I was doing shows for bands on the level of Bigwig and I against I, but you can damn well bet your ass I was out there spreading the word, making flyers, standing outside of record stores and coffee shops, making sure people knew about it. Hell, I was driving to Cincinnati and Columbus from Dayton and passing out flyers there for some of the bigger names. The point is I actually promoted because it was my job.

Once again yes, the band should promote themselves, but it's a promoter's job to promote. That's why they're called promoters. If you disagree, that's fine, but I'm not willing to ruin a good thread by someone getting pissed off. Therefore, before this gets heated I'm going to agree to disagree.

Please have a lovely night/day dependent on when you read this.

It really only makes sense that there are so many old scenesters who are into home brewing...

Welcome. I'm glad you found it. Feel free to share any punk stories, videos of bands you like, etc. We're pretty civil in here despite all being old (and some young) punk rockers.

Speaking of old farts (who still play the occasional live show no less...)




And while we're at it, more old farts who I'm glad I got to see live while I still could...

They're such a great band. Just wish they weren't such fencewalkers.

I don't judge people for what they do or what they believe, but I couldn't hang out with anyone who's racist. There is no reason for hating someone based on what color or culture they are.
