hey, my band is touring in april, we are missing dates on the 10th, 13th, 14th and 17th of april, the location of the date doesn't matter to us, so long as it is not in leeds, cardfiff, bristol, london, conventry, or birmingham as we already have dates booked there.
We have a record coming out the week before, with a fairly decent label and pr campaign, plus, we always work hard to promote our gigs, so i can be pretty sure we will pull at least some sort of crowd for you. We will play for very little, though petrol money might be nice, and as is said, location is unimportant.
in exchange, dependent on the offer, if you are a band or a manager, we can offer you a space on one of our own nights in may or beyond, this would be a midlands date, you would be under no pressure to promote or bring a crowd and it WOULD be a sell out, not a big venue, but we are talking about a 100 people or so.
we are a seven piece, folk-indie-whatever band, recently supported hold steady, okkervil river, walkmen, slow club, wedding present, born ruffians, broken records etc. we get compared to bright eyes, aracade fire, pogues, etc... which is sort of right i guess.
if anyone can help i would be most grateful, if not, maybe people could suggets some promoter links, have worked really hard and seem to have hit a dead end!....sorry for the long, buisness-like post...
let me know, please
