I am ALWAYS happy to list gigs and open music events on my newsletter and calendar. Here is what I ask for (well … in an ideal world): Please include band or group name, venue name, time of event, street address, city, zipcode, web address (URL) for your group if available, URL for the venue if available, phone number or email address for venue or group contact is a good idea also. To gain maximum web coverage for your event send it to me 2-3 WEEKS in advance. If you include a plain text press release, I will post that on the web and link to it in the calendar listing and newsletter. ALSO it is really helpful NOT to send gig listings to me or to anyone in first person. Don’t say “I” or “Me” or “yours truly” … use your full name as if someone else were listing it, then it is easier for me and your other friends to pass the information along clearly. Thanks! :-)
UNSUBSCRIBE — Send email to Mikes-Musicfirstname.lastname@example.org?subject=unsubscribe (with the word “unsubscribe” in the subject line) -OR- you can simply email Mike (reply to this message) at email@example.com anytime. PLEASE never use the “spam” button to get off ANY list … That is “poor e-etiquette” it causes more problems for the administrator of the list AND other subscribers AND for yourself.
