Dead But Dreaming
Newsletter #3 - April 1999
Greetings from Dead But Dreaming, once again coming to you with the
latest updates from the band.
Thanks go out to everyone who made it to our 3 March shows. The first
of which was changed at the last minute from Jimmy Z's to a bar down the
street (The Time Out), due to a booking error... nonetheless, DBD made
the most of it and put on a very well-received show. The show at
Rupert's went well also, with some solid support from fans as well as
those who were new to DBD's music. The final show in March, at the
Ballard Firehouse, was still a great show even though turnout wasn't as
big as it could've been. On that note, apologies to everyone who got
our e-mail reminder note late for the show!
So far, Dead But Dreaming is looking at one show in April, but it's
going to be a good one! The show is Wednesday, April 14th, at The
Colourbox, at 9:30pm sharp. The Colourbox is located at 113 First Ave.
S, in Pioneer Square. The band will be playing a 25 minute set,
featuring 5 of it's strongest songs, in a Battle of the Bands featuring
many bands playing short, back-to-back sets. This is an important gig
for DBD, as there will be contacts in attendance that could help the
band get better shows, including a rumoured festival in Eastern
Washington in September for the winner! So, pass the word along and
bring a friend! Hope to see everyone at the show!
The brand new Dead But Dreaming demo is finished, and in the process of
being duplicated. The demo packaging includes lyrics, by popular
demand. The band plans on making the CDs available at shows, as well as
through the website. CDs will be offered free at the upcoming show at
the Colourbox, for those loyal supporters who make it out!
While it is under heavy construction, the Dead But Dreaming website is
slowly growing and getting polished. Check it out at
http://members.home.com/deadbutdreaming/dbd.htm. More pics, info, bios,
and even sound samples will be added soon!
That's about it for now! Hope to see everyone at the show on the 14th!
