They've just booked my band to play Nambucca next month. Has anyone here played any gigs for them?
Three bands on at the same time in a big venue. Not enough punters for even one band.
It might be just cos we're shit, though.
we had no idea it was on until the day before and that was from looking on johnny foreigner's myspace page. there were about twenty people there and they were mostly friends of the support bands. they asked jofo's bass player to 'get her tits out'.
We're not the only ones then! That sounds like what happened to us. Minus the 'tits' part. We promoted it as best we could on myspace etc but for an out-of-town gig we rely on the promotion of the... well... the promoter.
The epitome of "in it for the money" the lineups were always shit with absolutely no thought gone into them.
their nights twice in the past.
1st: Upstairs at The Garage. We played with a familiar band from our circle of friends, and some other bands. It was busy and fun.
2nd: At Turnmills, it was with unknown to us (as we were to them) bands. It was empty and not much fun.
when I say empty it wasn't desolate, but just no atmosphere. That could have just been Turnmills though.
they put us on with the 80's matchbox b line disaster
was a good show!
