DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS?-All of you who book shows across the United States or actually anywhere in the world, get in touch. Trying to build a good network of DIY venues/promoters for Asian Man Records bands. So get in touch if you can help with booking. email@example.com
TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man cds, shirts, etc. What free stuff you ask?? Basically anything...if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah....anything. Let's trade!! Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade. Actually, even if you live in a different state/country get in touch as I tour often and perhaps will end up through your town. BOOYAH!!
Happy Wednesday. Hope all is well. This Friday night at the BOTTOM OF THE HILL in San Francisco, Plea For Peace is holding a food drive at the Classics of Love/Toys That Kill show. Also playing are Ready The Jet and For The Win. Please bring a non-perishable food item to feed the homeless in the Bay Area. We have made up Plea For Peace Buttons to give out to those who donate. If you can help spread the word, that would be wonderful.
Saturday is the Asian Man show in the parking lot of the Oakland Coliseum. I am getting 2 kegs of beer, a cooler of water, hot dogs as far as the eye can see, and mountainous amounts of punk rock. This will start at 4 PM sharp and all bands will be playing 10-15 minute sets. Everything is free and hopefully we don’t get shut down. I think we’ll be ok judging from past years experiences.
We’ve got some new merch., including a Riverdales T-Shirt and a Riverdales Koozie. In the next week we should have an Andrew Jackson Jihad koozie and the classics Converse QUEERS design on a shirt, button, sticker, and koozie.
The APERS 12” arrived yesterday and it is now available on the website. With purchase of the LP, you will receive the CD for free. WOO HOO!! What a great deal.
To follow up on the great SKA deal we did a few weeks ago, we are offering SKA DEAL NUMERO DOS. You get the following cd’s for only $20
BUCK O NINE-SUSTAIN, MONKEY-LOST AT SEA, PAMA INTERNATIONAL-FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERLY, UNSTEADY-DOUBLE OR NOTHING, LET'S GO BOWLING-FREEWAY LANES, MU330-WINTER WONDERLAND, BLUE MEANIES-KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE, LINK 80-STRUGGLE CONTINUES, SLOW GHERKIN-RUN SCREAMING, POTSHOT-POTS AND SHOTS.
Yes, that's 10 friggin CD'S for only $20. You can buy this and go to your local record store and sell them for more. Hopefully you won't do that of course. But yes, this will be the deal for the next 7 DAYS. Enjoy our generosity.
That’s it for now. For those of you who live in the bay area or for those out of towners who are coming to the shows this weekend…. I’ll see you in a few days.
Peace, mike park
