Adventures in Booking

I recently gathered the balls together to start calling bars around here and trying to book some small gigs. Apparently I have no end of opportunities in places where I am far away from like California and Germany, but shows in my city aren't exactly raining out of the sky. One thing that I guess I didn't anticipate when picking the name "Brad Sucks" years ago was how much fun this would make my phone conversations with bookers one day.

THEM: What's the name of your band?

ME: Oh it's "Brad Sucks"

THEM: ...Brad Sucks?

ME: Yep.

THEM: And your name's Brad?

ME: Yeah.

THEM: So you suck.

ME: Yeah I'm not very good.

THEM: ...

ME: ...

THEM: ...

ME: So are we in?
