getting my band on a show with A Skylit Drive this November? They're doing a UK tour and playing a small-ish venue (350 people tops) in Manchester, where we are located. Now, we could easily bring at least 80 people to this show (Not one of those bands that over-compensates and brings next to no-one), and I think that would be pretty good for ASD themselves because they're pretty huge in the states but no-one here really knows about them, so if they had a bigger crowd that moshes I'm sure they'd like that, and getting to play with one of our favourite bands would be pretty awesome. Problem is, I can't find who the promoter of the show is on any of the posters so I don't know who to contact, and I doubt the band themselves will reply if I message them on myspace. How would you suggest I sort this out?

i think that you would want to talk to their booking agent before their promoter.'

edit: you would probably have better luck in the bandleading forum, a lot of those guys are really sharp and have a lot of experience at this sort of thing.

My friends band played out in the woods with them. Only like 30 people went to the concert, L2Book. One of the people in my friend's band has the guitarists screen name.

This.

And send them a demo so they know who they're dealing with.

Could you link me to their myspace by any chance? I can't find them. Or if not, could you ask him and pm me his screen-name?

Oh, and thank you to the rest of the guys, I'm gonna find their booking agent and message them on myspace personally as well, everything's worth a shot!

np. just don't act like a desperate kid, act professional, display yourself and your band in that manner, and don't act like a fanboy if you are one. keep it cool, and have the attitude like you're something special, not just some opener.

I didn't mean A Skylit Drive's myspace you twod I meant his friend's bands myspace who played with them, haha.

Also, the female vocals would be due to them being a post-hardcore band, who generally tend to have girly, whiny vocals (Listen to Alesana for reference, aha), and their singer sings in falsetto.

This. A huge part of becoming big in the music scene is acting like you belong without being a d-bag.
