Promoter Exchange of 2011

This year, bands, labels, and promoters have taken some small notice of my blog. This has led to my discovering a lot of interesting new music. But it's also led to some much less interesting e-mail in my inbox. Here is my favorite exchange of the year (it literally made me laugh out loud), with the promoter's and band's names redacted:
Promoter: Afternoon Kelly,

Hope you are well. I'm currently working with the UK band **** who have previously toured with Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Deftones and Serj Tankian.

They have just announced details on their brand new 5th album "*** *****" and I was hoping you might be interested in running the news up on your blog as well as featuring the track "* ***** ***" which is taken from the record.

If you need anything else then please let me know.


FMA: Sorry, I don't generally do news; just reviews and editorials. Also, name-dropping Limp Bizkit is probably not a good idea generally.

Promoter: No problem. They've toured with Nickelback too but I took that out instantly.
