K, I dunno if this should be here or in misc, so I'll let the cool moderators (honest-the best mods i've ever encountered anywhere online) figure that one out... I just wondering, are all promoters jerks who have their job description all messed up? The ones in my town are just not cool. They have decided that YOU must handle all aspects of promotion before even they'll even talk to you! they also claim to be interested in new bands, but when new bands contact them, they give 'em the shaft. Sometimes I really hate the west coast.
