Local trash rock duo Pairs is cooking up something pretty cool for December. They’ve booked up Yuyintang on the afternoon of Sunday, Dec 18, and they now want to find two or three local student bands to come play a show with them. So all you students out there who just know your band is awesome but can’t find the opportunity to show anybody, here’s your chance!
Their stipulations are as follows: At least half your band members must been in college or high school, you can’t suck at replying to emails, and you need a Douban page (they’re leaning towards groups with a more active page.) If they choose you, you’ll be expected to help promote the show in various ways. Flyer tossing and that kind of thing. Which makes sense, considering they promise to divide ticket revenue evenly with you. Oh yeah, and no sunglasses on stage, unless you literally are Bono.
They appear to be doing all of this with a mind to help up-and-comers get some shine time in local media and on stage. Which is totally cool in our book. They’ll announce the lineup sometime mid-November.
So get on it student bands! Email pairs at [email protected] with the following info:
Band name, contact person name, phone number, band email (not private email), and a link to your Douban page with some songs on it.
