Organizing shows

Postby justintfirefly » Mon Dec 20, 2010 4:16 pm

I've been working really hard trying to get Showbread to play in Knoxville, TN since they announced that they wanted fans who could potentially get venues lined up for them to get active. A Christian book / music / clothing store that hosts concerts regularly is interested in getting them and is in the process of getting / being in contact with the band about doing a show there for the upcoming tour, but because of the holiday season, the owner hasn't had the opportunity to be as involved as he'd like. Still working mega hard though...

I was wondering if anyone else is doing something similar?

I was planning on it since my church regularly hosts concerts and stuff, and my youth group leader liked WCKI, but once I told him they'd probably be playing older stuff too (with screaming) he kinda was like UM NO. lol.
meh.

I was sort of afraid of that, but when I started talking with this guy about the event, I wasn't entirely familiar with the new record yet (I had the advanced download and had listened to it but didn't know enough about it to confidently talk about it). So I sent him a few music videos, mostly from The Fear of God, and a few of the better live videos of them online, then squinted my eyes and gritted my teeth as I awaited a response. Surprisingly, he was in love with them, saying most bands who "rock" as hard as Showbread have a hard time writing lyrics that are half decent, and Showbread, as you know, deliver both fiercely. Showbread changed my life in so many ways and to get them in my own home town would be unbelievable!

the place that I'm in talks with is called Altar'd State in the west Knoxville area. I'm relatively new to the area and that was the only place I knew of that would be down with doing a free show.

I finally got to check out a show at the Valarium last month when I won tickets to see the Reverend Horton Heat. Awesome venue that will be hosting NOFX soon and has recently had the Deftones, but Knoxville also has some other really nice places, though they wouldn't really be down with a free show, I'm sure of it. The Tennessee Theater recently hosted the Black Crowes and a few weeks later NEEDTOBREATHE. Shortly after moving here my wife and I saw Flogging Molly at World's Fair Park and then Rob Zombie / Alice Cooper at the Colosseum. Billy Bragg also recently played the Bijou and hopefully soon at Altar'd State, SHOWBREAD!

My wife and I graduated college almost 4 years ago, but our favorite part about living in Knoxville is the ability to go to a good show "on a school night"

Yeah I havent been to any of those places because they are usually way too expensive. I really love the valarium because its huge and cheap.
