I was fully expecting and hoping to watch Revenge of the Nerds today (a key component of my expansive VHS collection), but instead I found myself sending emails to bars and coffee shops in an attempt to book some shows. While doing so, I realized that if I sent even one booking email per day to a venue, I would be much further ahead of the game than I currently am. (For the record, I am currently in a state of laziness.)
Today I emailed 5 venues. On Monday, I will email 5 more. Same with Tuesday. This might not seem like much, but it takes me about 1 hour to send 5 emails like that, since each one is customized to contain information for each venue.
I am trying to book June right now, which would save me from the stress of booking bands at the last minute as I did for the Valentine’s Day Fundraiser.
