Here are two things we want to do right away:

1. We will be making a monthly flyer that lists all the shows (that we find out about through the show section of this forum) happening in Cleveland. If you want the shows that you are booking or playing to show up on the flyer, make sure that they are posted before the 25th of the previous month.

For example. If you are playing a show in July, make sure that you've posted in the July section by June 25th.

Kevin Czap and Adam will be the ones designing the flyers. However, if you're into design, you might want to offer your services

We will make each monthly flyer available through this forum, so you can print out your own copies. Ty will also be printing copies of the flyer. We'll try to establish a spot where you can pick up flyers.

We need volunteers to hand out flyers at larger shows happening at HOB, Peabody's and Grog Shop (The kind of shows attended by kids who might not know that any of this cool DIY stuff exists).

The flyer will include: A list of all upcoming shows (times, dates, door $, etc), a link to this forum, a list of local labels and distros, and a bandcamp link where people can find a free / frequently updated comp that we'll be hosting.

2. The bandcamp comp will be free to download, and it will have one song by every active NE Ohio band willing to provide a song. As more bands get involved, we'll add more songs to the comp.

Please send me a wav. of the song you'd like to be on the comp (must be a wav. file) @ elliott.h3booking AT gmail.com, or PM on the boards with a link to your own bandcamp (please tell me what song you want used, and make sure I can download it for free).

If anyone is confused, please speak up.

I wonder if any of you guys have heard about DIY PHL and what they're up to? I know you mentioned some other Philly booking collective, but I've been paying attention to these guys for a couple of months and what they're doing overlaps with this larger mission as well.

Not expressly saying "let's copy everything they do," but I don't think it would hurt to take some lessons where we can.

A lot of their ideas are solid. However, some of them are certainly predicated on having a population the size of Philly. Clevelands tricky, because of the low population density + the fact that a lot of young kids have to commute from the burbs. Any specific ideas that you think we could successfully mimic?

Nothing too specific I guess. This is just what is in my head when we talk about this kind of stuff, and I wanted to share in case I was the only one who'd heard of it.

I do dig their flyers and website.

(and of course, you are spot on about the population thing.)

Man, at some point down the line, I'd love to have an actual website for a lot of this stuff.

I didn't want to impose, but (time permitting) I want to make that actual website.

You just love time consuming projects that pay zero dollars, don't you?

I see your elephant and raise you a kitty cat

Columbus also has a similar flier/calendar situation, and forum (http://columbusdiy.org). I don't think they have a site for the calendar like DIY PHL does. I know someone who helps put together the calendar though, if you want another Ohioan to talk to about ideas/trouble shooting/etc.

If you ever need additional art, I'm down.

If I have time, I can always help. If anyone else needs artwork, I can usually get you what you're looking for at a fairly inexpensive price... dependent on what you want that is.

Adam Paduch, Kevin Czap, Dave Vezdos, and Nick Kratsas have volunteered to work on the flyer.

Adam and Kevin have plans for the first one in June. Maybe you guys can work out a rotation so no one gets burnt on doing the flyer every single month.

I think it's funny that these are the four people responsible for generating like 98% of the Harvey Pekar designs.

This is amazing. If someone can get me the flyer's I can pass them out at Grog at the shows that make sense when I work.

I'd be willing to pass out flyers whenever I am in the Cleve as well.

Awesome. The art brain trust is hard at work. We're working on how to arrange flyer printing and distribution to the folks who are volunteering to hand them out. By working on it, I mean that I hope Ty sick is working on it.

Also, I've gotten a decent amount of submissions, but I am still missing tracks from a lot of bands that really should be on the comp. I you don't submit something, I'll probably just pick a tune that I like. If you don't want a tune to be on the comp for some label related reason, you might want to let me know.

Elliot, if you just wanna use any American War song for that comp, you can. You can download the newest album from ifyoumakeit.com and just use whatever. If you want. Cool.

If everyone thinks it would be beneficial to extend the reach a tad, I'd be happy to get some flyers distributed around the Akron area.

I think it would be great if someone woul flyer Akron.

Also, I don't have enough submissions to put a reasonable bandcamp comp on the flyer yet, so that will probably have to wait for the July flyer. Just a heads up.

I start summer classes there next week. I don't know the flyer policy except for in one building at the U of A campus but I will get some up where I can. I'll hit up Square Records and Highland Square as well.

I actually live a block away from Highland Square, so no need to make the trip. Maybe you could check out Musica while you're in the area? They tend to have a bunch of flyers and stuff by the entrance.

There's Rubber City Noise, as well. I've never been there, though.
