so my band was asked by an upstart local magazine to participate in a concert series and photoshoot to be featured in their next issue! needless to say we were completely stoked! we've done some pics before, but always on our dime and mostly just hiring someone to shoot a gig. but this is a real deal, professional magazine photo shoot. they wanted to feature us along with some female models all decked out in steam punk. even better! EXCEPT - the two married guys knew their wives would be pissed because of female models being around. so we had to ask the magazine to NOT INCLUDE the models! other than being hella lame, i was concerned the magazine would choose to go another route, since we weren't willing to comply with what they had presented us. luckily, it is a local upstart and this will be only their third or fourth edition, they are willing to work with us. we still get the photo shoot. hopefully we'll still get the full spread in the mag as well. so, a great experience i'm still expecting. it will be fun. it's always funner with models though. what do ya'll think about the no models thing? wasn't worth a fight, but maybe the most hella lame thing ever from the guys.
