    hey everyone, as some of you may or may not know I play drums for a band called Big City Thieves,

    we've been together for a few months now, and we have been working really hard booking shows and

    battling it out at battle of the bands. So far we are two for two at each battle of the bands we

    have played, we have won first prize.

    As of a month and a half ago we submitted an application to Paragon Entertaiment, hoping to get

    into their Spotlight Band Competition hosted at The Reverb in Toronto, Sept 7th and 8th. Out of

    several hundred bands that applied, we were one of the 20 band that were selected to compete. 20

    bands will compete for a 10,000 dollar recording contract and development deal, which is an

    amazing prize.

    Now here's where we need the help

    We found out a week ago (with only 8 days left untill the competition) in order to compete we

    have to sell a minumum of 30 tickets to the show, at $10 dollars each. Basically, they want an

    entry fee of $300 dollars, so we are now frantically looking for sponsors and asking people if

    they can help us out by donating any amount of money to help us get to this competition.

    With only being 4 days away from the competition, even anything as low as $1 dollar, will get you

    a ticket to the show, we have a roll of 300 tickets we are selling for what ever anyone can offer

    us. We have set up a paypal account for anyone online who wants to help us out.

    All sponsors will be on a special guest list at The Reverb for Sept 7th and 8th, as well as

    recieving download access to our unreleased Demo (9 songs in total)

    It's gonne be a great show, 20 amazing live bands battling it out for a Prize worth well over

    $10,000 dollars.

    If you would like to help out, you can email us at bigcitythieves@hotmail.com and you will be

    given our paypal address or contact us through www.myspace.com/bigcitythieves where you can also

    here samples of our music.

    Sincerely, Mike, Dale, Matt and Colin

    You mean "hear" samples of [your] music?

    I guess if I were going to be anywhere near Toronto around that time I'd feel differently but here's an idea: Why don't you, Dale, Matt and Colin scrape together $300 bones yourselves, instead of soliciting donations from strangers? It seems like a small price to pay for a 1-in-20 shot at "a Prize worth well over $10,000 dollars." No?

    You could sell some old G1 figures (like Trypticon) to sponsor it.

    DOH!

    Maybe because Mike has been posting here a long time and feels that a lot of these people are friends, not strangers.


    Noob.
