I GO OUT!

So a few weeks ago, I was sitting around my apt, looking at old photos from shows I used to go to and telling Karen how much I miss going out to shows every night and loving the bands. Ever since starting Stolen Transmission, whenever I went to a show it was to see a band I was scouting. So I was stuck at the show thinking "is this band going to sell? what's their fan base? how would i market them?" Its like fucking homework all over again. I missed standing up front and not giving a shit and wondering what the band is doing later so that I could party with them and dance.

Then, ironically, my friend Dan from Universal hit me up asking if i wanted to write a blog for the universal website where I had to see a band every night and write about it. Literally, like, the next day this happened. The best part is that I dont have to write about bands on universal at all... but they would prefer that i made universal bands priority over who i saw that night, but it's not mandatory.

The ironic part is that Stolen Transmission used to go through universal before ties were severed in december leaving me income-less.... But now, i have an income again (a smaller one than before, but enough to barely pay rent until Stolen Transmission finds a new home)... AND I GET TO GO TO SHOWS!

So, i'm out every night and reviewing shows. Here's the website: ALMACK'S DANCE HALL.

Please book mark it!

Also, I'm DJing at SXSW!

hiii. my name is amy, and i've been reading this blog since forever. like my freshman year of college at columbia, and i just graduated last semester forever. i finally met you at the mtv woodie awards this past year. you got my friend a drink! and you were practically the sweetest person ever, i mean in terms of having just met someone. i'm going to be at sxsw because i live in houston now, and i want to listen to your set! i'm wristband-less because so many bands play for free-- is it a free show or do you have to have the wristband? PLZ say it's open to the public...

in any event, i wish you the very best (:
