    My band is just getting established in the SF scene right now. We're hooked up at a few places right now, but we'd like to start playing a lot more.
    The scene has kinda taken a turn for the worst--clubs are closing down and bookers have an attitude. We've found that a lot of bookers are hard to reach--there numbers/addresses/emails arn't advertised. I was wondering if you had a directory of SF bookers or something you could forward me to.
    Thank you,

    Actually no, TSOTP. I don't do the bookings for the band. Do you have a demo packet? Pics, bio, a recent recording, that kind of stuff?
     
  4. Yeah--we've got a demo pack. It has the CD, picture, and bio. It's just a matter of getting it out to the right people now.

    And thanks for the advice, Donne. We know our way around.

    Bump...
     
  6. Well, as long as we're on the SF gig topic, I suppose I'll throw in some shameless self-promotion:

    The Lava Rats are coming to the Hotel Utah for one night only on Wednesday, Septmeber 11th.
    The Hotel Utah is located on 4th and Bryant.
    The show is at 8pm, the Lava Rats go on at 10:30.
    $5 at the door, 21+ only.

    Show your patriotism by coming out and making the scene. The Lava Rats: the most All-American band since Grand Funk!

    So, there it is. I hope to see some of you there.
