DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS? - All of you who book shows across the United States, get
in touch with me please. Asian Man Records bands want to tour, 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 Records 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.
Hola….It’s dark and gloomy today. Looks like more rain headed this way. In the last 20 years I can’t remember San Jose, California getting this much rain and especially in late April. And it’s kind of cold too. Yeah, I’m a wimp, but I want sunshine and short shorts and blah…......
Ok, here we go!!!....
Next Wednesday we’ll be putting up the ordering info for the new KEVIN SECONDS(good luck buttons) and THE WILD(set oursevesfree) releases. Go to myspace.com/asianrecords and you can hear a track from each album there(will be up later today). We’ve also put up a bunch of other songs from recent records up on the player, so check it out.
Kevin Seconds record release show will be on May 13th @ The Naked Lounge in downtown Sacramento. The show is all ages and only five bucks. DOH!! Dan Potthast will also be playing, along with some other great artists. So yeah.. come on down if you’re anywhere close to Sacramento. ....
The WILD have a record release show on May 8th @ The WONDEROOT in Atlanta, GA.. All ages of course and another $5 show. $5 shows are rare these days don’t you think? ....
THE HOT TODDIES new album “Get Your Heart On” will be in stores July 13th. We had to push the release date back a month as we fell behind on production. But both the CD and VINYL will be available at the bands record release show on JUNE 5th @ The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.....
THE MAX LEVINE ENSEMBLE 7” that we had discussed a few weeks back is almost complete. The 7” will be titled:
"Them Steadily Depressing, Low Down Mind Messing, Post Modern Recession Blues"
The Lucky Ones
This is Rome, and We Are...
The Tragedy of the Anti-Commons....
The band is hand screening the covers, so we’ll get yummy looking artwork. We’ll also be including a download code with the release. But yeah….not sure of an exact release date, but look for this to be available by the end of May. ....
Still waiting to get a final release date on the SUNDOWNER record. I am guessing AUGUST 10th, but not 100% on that. And finally, with the Matt Skiba release coming out on August 10th, we are going to press 3 different colors of vinyl for this. So my question to you is can you guys suggest the colors? You can see the cover here: myspace.com/mattskibamusic....
Ok, that is all my friends. Be well.....
Peace, mike park
