SymbioticSend Symbiotic a message :   This was a pretty sweet show. How often do you get to see people doing rope acrobatics at first ave. And Dresden's cover of War Pigs was killer. I dig the poster too.   2006-11-05 10:01:01
Cosmic BubblegumSend Cosmic Bubblegum a message :   I don't see what's so bad about what you did. You asked for the gig and got it. The person on the other end could have easily said "No, we have someone else who usually does the posters" or "We want to get a local artist" or "Contact the promoter instead" or something like that. Ultimatly, isn't it their choice who allow/hire to make a poster, and other artists should have no right to be offended?
What's the big deal? This is an honest question, not snarkiness.

PieperSend Pieper a message :   bummer. i guess it's best to know your venue, huh?
this leads me to something...
I want to make a public apology. A certain GP member wrote me a PM to explain something and to give me some guidance. he was really cool about it - and I think it was something I needed to hear.
Basically, he clued this new guy into the fact that I really shouldn't be writing off emails to venues far and wide for permission to get gigs. He told me that this kind of 'grab-bagging' would probably be looked down upon by other memebers of this community - and that poster artists close to the venue might feel that they were underhanded.
If I stepped on anyones toes - I really, sincerely apologize - and my taking of this gig was out of pure ignorance to this unwritten 'rule'. I just really wanted to do a poster for this band - and well, that was my only reason for taking this.
Everyone has been super-cool on this site - and the last thing I want to do is to step on anyones toes, etc....
I'll keep local for a while....except for the Atlanta area - that's my hometown and I've got lots of friends in bands, and I visit there a lot!
Anyway - long story short. I'm sorry. But I'm glad I was set straight. Anyone got any other thoughts on this topic?
(I think I am gong to post this in the forums as well - I'm sure others could use this knowledge as well)
peace ep

TenebriniSend Tenebrini a message :   I've never heard of the Dresden Dolls. I'd have been confused.   2006-09-14 17:15:16
UnitusSend Unitus a message :   First Avenue is the club, but has two stages.
The Dresden Dolls are playing the "mainroom" stage.
There are other bands on the "7th St. Entry" stage that night.
But nobody will be confused and think the Dresden Dolls are playing the Entry.
