In 2005 I found that I couldn't book certain rooms in NH, because a particular booking agent held exclusivity on those rooms. So I contacted him and asked for a spot on his roster. He did what anyone who has bothered to write back has done so far; he told me he had a full roster, but good luck in my endeavors. Well, I did my own booking and played over 100 shows that year. And work has been generally steady since then. Every now and then I stumble upon a rep that seems like a good fit, and I send them my info. I hear back from them less than half the time.
The rooms I play are happy with what I have to offer. I'm pretty consistently well-received these days, and I take great pains to be professional about my work. It's my hope that eventually I'll find a company that sees the progress I'm making and decides to benefit from helping me take it even further. In the meantime, I'm out booking work and in the basement recording the next album. Stay tuned for updates on both.

Tonight I'm playing a solo show at the Country Cow in Campton. The show starts at 6:30. I like that room a lot. Plus, Thursday is pizza night. Works for me!
In other news, I'm getting my old screenprinting setup going again. I've got a few shirt ideas, and I can update my gear and do my own 'band shirts' for about the same price as ordering them from someone else. DIY!

In other news, it's a somewhat busy week for me. Thursday is a solo show at The Country Cow in Campton. On Friday I'm playing in a park in Belmont with No Limitz. And (Who Are The) Brain Police are playing at Mad Bob's Saloon in Manchester on Saturday.

The finger is pretty close to 100% now, thankfully. Tonight is the open mike at Shooter's, and I'm the host. It starts around 7:30 or so. We haven't gotten a lot of participants t this open mike, so more often than not, it's just a solo show. So if you want to play a set, there's plenty of room for you! If you want to just come hang out, listen, drink beers and watch the Red Sox, that's cool too.
