10/6 pt. 2

from punknews.org

"In a move that can only be described as Mike Park-esque, The Get Up Kids frontman Matt Pryor has apparently begun gauging interest in performing gigs inside the living rooms of strangers. There’s no word on the scope of this or if it’ll even end up happening, but if you’re interested in hosting Mr. Pryor he can contacted here.

Pryor released Confidence Man in 2008 and The Get Up Kids issued Simple Science earlier this year.”

someone here in burlington please contact him and have him play their living room, there’s some weird rules and whatnot and the tickets are all sold through matt pryors website but this is fucking awesome it wouldn’t cost anything and it would be the most killer thing in the world.

please someone do it with a big living room.

10/6

we have one position open for a street team member, there will be 5 total, here is what we are looking for someone in chittenden county preferably

perks
-not much really, be a black lodge member, this does NOT mean you get to go to shows for free, we lose a lot of money on shows,

-also when shows start doing well and making money if hard work is seen put into the shwos by the street teams some of the profits may be split out.
-the harder the work the more the black lodge would be willing to book events for street teams birthdays or just bands people on the street team would like to see. again like said before if you work for us we’ll do our best to work for you.
