[Zombies] MBM needs your help-please!

Here in SF, I run a dark electro club called 'Strangelove'.  Last month 
I did a Jack Dangers tribute night to show support for one of my 
favorite artists as well as to help spread the word about the concert.  
I've heard from the venue that ticket sales jumped after that event.

You don't have to convince a local club to do a MBM theme, but if you 
could get an appropriate club to give away tickets to the show, that 
would be a great avenue for promotion.  Get someone at the club to 
contact the venue, or you can be the middle man by: contacting an 
appropriate nightclub, and see if they would be interested in giving 
away tickets to the concert.  Then contact the venue, tell them that 
you're trying to get the word out, and see if they would be willing to 
donate one or two pairs of tickets (or just slots on the guest list) to 
be given away at that club.  If they're game, then contact the club 
again and give them the appropriate contact info at the venue.  Oh 
yeah, and make sure to put flyers out at that nightclub, so that those 
who don't win the tickets can still take home info reminding them to 
buy tickets.

Getting the date added to local/college radio event calendars is really 
important, as is requesting to hear MBM, as it gives the DJ the chance 
to mention the event again on the air.

...my 2 cents worth.
