WesFest 7 Free Ticket Giveaway & U.K. Aristocrats Shows…Plus U.K. Beller Bass Clinic
Thursday, February 23rd, 2012
Nothing but the facts this late February morning, ma’am.
SoCal: We’re in the WesFest 7 benefit show fundraising and concert-ticket-selling home stretch. If you’ve been on the fence about going, please allow me to push you off in favor of going.
Not convinced? OK, I’ll bribe you: The first seven people who buy anything from my online store will get a FREE TICKET TO WESFEST 7 on Sunday, March 4 at The Roxy in Los Angeles, featuring The Aristocrats, Mike Keneally, and four hours of awesome entertainment all detailed here. The only condition: you, or someone you designate, *has* to go to the show. The ticket must be used. To recap: Just buy something at my store, then contact me and claim the free ticket.
Also, some late breaking news in the U.K. – I’ll be doing a bass clinic sponsored by Mike Lull Custom Basses at The Robin in Bilston (outside Birmingham) before the show, at 5pm. Free to get in if you RSVP through Bass Direct, and you get a 50% off the ticket price to the Aristocrats concert that night if you want to go, which you do.
Speaking of the UK shows, London and Edinburgh are just about sold out. Better check the Aristocrats website for details on advance ticket purchasing.
This information is all aggregated in much more artful form in the latest BellerBytes.
Open question for the entity known as the month of February: You mad, bro?
New BellerBytes: WesFest 7 Update, Aristocrats March UK/Europe/MidEast Tour, Kira/Bryan April/May NE/Midwest House Concert/Clinic Tour, and Let’s See If I Can/Come/Up/With/More/Slashes
Wednesday, February 8th, 2012
Holy/Crap, I really need to back away from that one particular punctuation mark. Because god knows there’s plenty of them in the latest BellerBytes.
It covers three main topics:
1. WesFest 7 Status: We’re $3,000 Away From The Goal, But We Need Your Help…
2. The Aristocrats Are Headed To The U.K. (with Godsticks) & Europe & The Middle East In March
3. Sneak Preview Of The Next Kira/Bryan NE/Midwest House Concert/Clinic Tour Dates (April/May)
That’s a pretty good headline summary, right? So good that I don’t have to elaborate much further?
OK, I will a little bit. Lots of you have told me that you’re coming to see The Aristocrats at WesFest 7. But advance ticket sales aren’t reflecting that. I’m happy to trust the force and count on a strong walk-up ticket rush on the day of the show, but we’re $3,000 from the fundraising goal, which means we need to sell 95 more tickets. This is absolutely doable, but it’s up to you.
So if you’re planning on going but you haven’t bought tickets yet, how about now? Or now? Maybe, you know, now?
I admit, I’m all typed out from that BellerBytes. Read it and you’ll see why.
In other news, the new Van Halen F–KING ROCKS. I can’t believe how great and authentically VH it is. I feel like I’m 15 again when I listen to it. If you care at all about that band, stop what you’re doing and get it. You won’t be disappointed.
