As some of you might know, I have a new blog called AlmacksDanceHall.com that is a NYC show and nightlife based blog.
My editor wants there to be like 3 show reviews A DAY!
I, obviously, cant do this alone. So I'm trying to find people who are writers and photographers to help out. I'm looking for people who are energetic and excited about music and live shows. I want a personal and enthusiastic touch to the reviews. For instance, my brother wrote a love letter to the drummer of the Raveonettes.... that was personal and a fun read. I dont need this site to be the next pitchfork or brooklynvegan because those sites already exist. i'm looking for a site that reflects the experience of going to a show -- the people you meet, the songs you dance to, the puke you spit up at the end of the night... I'm looking for people to give me their personal diaries from the night.
If you want to write or take live photos for the site, please write me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Almacks will pay for your show tickets, cab ride, drinks, and an OK fee for your work as well as credit. I need reliable people who can turn things in either the same night or next day.
Please send me your writing clips (even if it's just a blog posting) and/or photos you've taken at live shows.
