Not sure what the lads think about it, but I've kicked it off anyway:
Here's a bit of blurb:
Do you ever wonder why 808 State don't play in your area (or even your country!)? Often the answer is simply that the band's agent has not been able to find a promoter or venue who is able to book them...so even though we may know that there are loads of fans in Oslo, Atlanta or Toronto without a promoter it is very hard to arrange a gig. Well we have found a new website that may provide the solution www.owngig.com
fans can create their own shows. All you need to do now is register and tell them how much you would be willing to pay to see 808 State and how far you would be willing to travel for a show. When sufficient demand is achieved owngig.com will contact 808 State with a view to arranging a gig, either as part of a tour or as a one-off event. Check it out. It might just be the answer!
