Toad\'s Final Push
« on: May 26, 2006, 12:26:06 pm »
We are exactly 23 days to the 1000th Show celebration at Toad\'s Place. There are a few shows coming up in the area over the next few weeks that we need a hand to help flyer and promote.

If you are going to any shows this weekend or over the next 3 weeks and want to help, let me know and I will get you material ASAP.

Monday night Mike Gordon and Ramble Dove will be at Toad\'s Place and I believe it is essential to get down there will some material. If anyone if going or planning on going it would be nice to get some passes and give them out down there.

Badfish is again at Toad\'s on June 3rd. If you are not going to the Stone Church and will be in town, we can really use the promotion there.

That same weekend of Toad\'s Place is the Magic Hat City Festival in Danbury. Those who will be checking out this show, this would really be a great opportunity.

The Machine at Toad\'s Place on Saturday the 10th. Also is a good show to hit up.

Here is a link to all shows in the CT area over the next couple of weeks. CT Shows to Promote

I have some posters I need to get up. If anyone has a good place that can use one or know of a good place to hang one, let\'s get one up.

There are only a few weeks before this show and who knows what\'ll happen then.

Thanks.
Love many, trust few and don\'t be late.

I\'m assuming most of us if not all of us will be at the Stone Church. However, some reduced passes to hand out at the Festival would go a long way. Let me know.

Hey Spacey!  I just made a call to Toad\'s print out some more of those passes.  I showed Toad\'s owner one of your posters to show as a sample of what\'s been done to promote this.  I\'m gonna do my best to be @ Toad\'s for Gordon on Monday.  I might be working the Badfish show which actually hurts my ability to promote.  

If anyone else needs reduced admission passes let me know ASAP

Well, this Toad\'s show is really important. Any number below 500 is going to be a failure as far as attendance. A milestone in the career of the band at the original hometown venue. People who normally just go to Toad\'s shows for the band are the people we need to pull out and along with those who are not fortunate enough to get to many of the 21+ shows, i.e. High Schoolers and those in the final years before hitting 21.

What did Toad\'s say about this promotion?

We really can\'t stress that enough.  For those of you who haven\'t been before- 250 and you can hear the crickets.  Ideally everyone going would bring 1 friend who\'s never seen the band before.

As for Toad\'s reaction to the promotion- Toad\'s management is extremely skeptical of my interest in this show.  (What\'s in this for you Brian?)
When I worked there full time they used give us passes for random shows and send us down town to pass them out on the street.  I would deposit them in the nearest trash can, and go to Richters for a beer.

It would be of great help. The festival looks really good, its just that the Birthday b\'fast show is too much to miss.

I do expect the lights to be the best ever at this show. According to Ellis-D, he has many combinations programmed on the system just for the Breakfast and has yet to use them in any other show. Just another reason to come to the show!
