Blitzen Trapper are touring! Hit me up on AIM for more info!

Dear TMT fans:

It’s come to our attention recently that the Tiny Mix Tapes Myspace bulletins aren’t reaching as many of you as they used to. At first we thought that maybe we had just disabled the comments accidentally, but a closer inspection revealed that most of you haven’t used your accounts since 2007. Alarmed by this revelation, we rushed over to our Angelfire page, which was a hotbed of activity the last time we checked it (the little counter thingy at the bottom was just going up and and up and up), only to find a similar lack of participation going on there. Fuck. Where did we go wrong?

Actually, don’t answer that. Because there’s no time to dwell on the past. In fact, because we’ve been working long and hard with our part-time, volunteer IT department since this morning, we now believe that we’ve come up with an ingenious new way to keep our profile high, our readers satisfied, and our advertisers happy. Okay, so here’s the plan: if you hit us up on our beeper number (1-900-TMT-ZINE) with your name, number, address, and favorite bands, we’ll use the payphone over in the nearby Amtrak station to collect-call you via 1-800-COLLECT every time one of those bands is playing in your town!

For example, are you a big fan of Blitzen Trapper? Have you already stolen their forthcoming album, American Goldwing (due September 13 on Sub Pop) from the internet, and yet aren’t smart enough to use that same internet to find out when they’re playing in Boulder, Colorado? It’s cool; Just beep us, bro! Then, in addition to calling your house at odd hours of the day and night with upcoming Blitzen Trapper concerts in Boulder, we’ll also send you a personalized piece of paper in the US Mail with a handwritten link to download one of their new songs on Mp3.com! I hope your Prodigy Internet is working! This you can’t miss. Hit us up today to try it out. The future is here today!
