I NEED WRITERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS

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: sarah@stolentransmission.com

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.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with this posting, but I wanted to know if your new book was available at barnes n nobles or borders? Thanks.

jennytrauma spelled "definitely" wrong and she wants to be a writer.

Just saying.

I never said I wanted to be a writer. Just because I spelled one word wrong doesn't make me unfit to apply.

Thanks for pointing it out though I had a feeling I spelled it wrong.

ULTRAGRRRL! No one knows music like you do: thats why I’ve decided after much endless travel to ask you this: the NYC band Saints and Lovers are excellent. Please check them out at this link http://www.myspace.com/saints and lovers.

Let me know what you think! Would mean the world! I also work at Betsey Johnson…so if ya need anything..

You can use some of my photos from the April 24th show at Webster Hall so long as my blog, Backseat Sandbar, gets the credit. My review is available here at Backseat Sandbar.

Jeezuz,

I remember when you were selling me four dollar CD's and now I have to swear to Ullwxik in to comment.

Congrats on hitting the bigtime.

This sounds tremendous. Any chance this offer stretches nationwide to Seattle? Your boys (and girl) Schoolyard Heroes are from here...
