Shows on the Way!
As a band we are realizing that Delaware has a very crappy music scene. So we're doing two things about that. First we are going to start playing in PA and New Jersey a lot. Second, we are going to find a building we can rent sometimes and have our own shows. It's going to rock.
I sent our info out to some booking companies, veunues, and promoters today. Hopefully they will like us and book us! I'm really excited about it.

There is a great site (with a really special name) that lists all of the venues who want to book bands and their contact info. Thanks to that site, we are going to start rocking the east coast.

Hey you left out us in NY
we have an awesome music scene (even though its more of a poughkeepsie thing)....not as notorious as NJ i know but still pretty darn good!
Namesake is getting me the number to the guy who books their shows...you know the chance isnt the only really great spot here....
are you willing to play in NYC?

So, Poncho knows EVERY BAND EVER and also EVERY VENUE EVER. You looking for a job as a booking agent?
hahaha well i dont know every band i just...
actually i have no clue how i got into it all but i guess it's because i love new music and i love promoting them so....i just know a good deal
hehe booking agent sounds so cool but don't ya guys have one already? I am a promoter of bands though....I learned from the best
promoting is really fun. I get backstage access to awesome bands but no nothing like The Used...
