blogs t r e t c h

between a roux and a bechamel

Let's say you worked in PR. Your job is to drum up attention for whoever you represent. Let's say you're representing a band. You know what would be a really good way to accomplish your tasks? To repeatedly screw over a local blog in the city said band is from. This marks the second month in a row that a certain local alt country front woman, who may or may not have played to a sold out crowd at the Black Cat last night and whose first name rhymes with "pow", was supposed to be part of our Three Stars feature at DCist. And, for the second month in a row, her PR team (or maybe sounds-like-pow herself, I don't know) has failed to follow through. Last month we were asking for a phoner. As we did again this month. Finally, after about a bajillion exchanges, the PR rep asked for questions via email. We sent them. Last week. And for some reason, here it is, Friday, and we still have nothing to show for it. We're all busy people, but sending in a few responses via email takes almost no time. Good work alienating people that could have given you free publicity, guys.

But on a happier note, go check out the Three Stars I did with the Black & White Jacksons.
