Within the last few months I’ve gotten in touch with you all at some
point and let you know about the show I have been developing. We
launched our first episode last week and uploaded the second episode
this afternoon. Since we are humming along (relatively) nicely now I
thought I would get the word out.
And I am always interested in bands that you can send my way to cover.
Each episode’s general format is about a single band. We interview
the band, and then the band plays a song for us and we turn it into a
sort of hybrid between a live performance and a music video.
I’d appreciate any feedback I can get. It’s not much right now, but I
believe, as do all of you, that there is a lot of potential in this
scene that we love.

Thanks for all your support!
PS: Bar owners, since we prefer to shoot bands in bars and clubs
(battle-tested sound systems make for good live recordings), I’ve come
up with a plan that I think benefits all three parties - our show, the
bands, and your club. When we shoot in your club, you arrange on your
own terms a performance with that band to play at your club in the
coming months, and then we will promote that performance on that
band’s episode on our show.
