CT Concert gig possibility THIS MONDAY, need more artists.
Posted by Lauren on May 20, 2002 at 16:59:46:I heard about a local rock station's big yearly concert and wrote to
ask about setting up a henna booth there. They said they'd love to
have me, and the cost was $2000. For one day. Yeah, right.
So I wrote a letter to the promotions manager telling him about how I
was a freehand artist and my profits were limited by the time
available, and since I wouldn't be selling preprinted t-shirts or
some other moveable commodity, there was no way I could make that
much money back, much less make a profit. I was very polite and
asked if there was a smaller rate or something to support local
businesses. Emphasize local. Emphasize cool factor. Lo and behold,
I got a call this morning with an offer that was almost reasonable.
Since I don't know if they are offering this rate to everyone, I
don't want to post more details publicly, but if there are artists on
here who are interested in doing a concert (Not Ozzfest, but similar
numbers of people, and less violent bands) please email me privately
for more info. I figure I'd need 3-4 artists and my husband will be
Booth Bitch, although he requests we not call him that at the event :)
