Ross Posted March 2, 2006 Report Share Posted March 2, 2006 I posted this in another thread but the thread was wildly off tangent and thus am starting anew one. Neil / Dave / whoever please move to an appropriate forum if this is deemed unappropriate:Promoting in Aberdeen:1.Generally word of mouth is the best method. Especially after a band have played. "Did you see so and so last night...etc?"2.Postering is very time consuming and few places will let you put up posters and if you have numerous then you can forget about it.3.There being no places for legal / rented flypostering unlike every other city in Scotland.4.People are more inclined to go and see something they know than something they don`t and as thus the "local" scene in Aberdeen is very strong.5.Promoting 1 gig or 2 gigs with double backed flyers etc is hard work. Promoting 10 gigs at once is a bloody nightmare unless you have a band that sells themselves.6.Aberdeen is the slowest sell out on almost every tour except: Oasis / Stone Roses / Ian Brown etc and what you would generally conceive to have a laddish beer drinking following.7.People are very quick to judge and to knock something back.8.People always moan about something when it has gone / passed / finished / split up etc.9.People are lazy when it comes to trying to find out about gigs and you really need to ram it down their throats each time to get a result.I take a deep breath as now i`ll be berated beyond existance.Ross Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
