Ok so a while ago we got confirmed as the local support for a show featuring Black Dahlia Murder Cephalic Carnage Psychroptic Sylosis Needless to say im confident this will be one of the best shows to be on this year even though its only in feb. A while back our singer called the promoter at 11pm to get some info about this and the guy said 'cool ill message you on myspace'. We then recieved a message saying ' wtf did you phone me at that time for, the bdm slot is no longer available.....' (paraphrased) so we were pretty gutted.... Its worth noting that the person in question owns a business and puts on gigs all the time that run up till about 12:30am. I would say its fair to assume his hours of business include 11pm being they is in the business of late night entertainment. Anyway we got on a support slot for protest the hero with the same person and he messages us the other day saying ' you are playing a show a week or so before PTH, im not happy about that because you wont get the same number of people in the door for your show with me. You have 3 options cancell the other show cancell the PTH show Cancell PTH and open for black dahlia instead..... funnily enough we chose option 3 saying something like 'oh sorry, never noticed they were that close together we'll just open for bdm instead i suppose.....' you might call that turning a fail into a win for us. i often wonder whether the people who put on gigs in my area ever went to school.
