Introducing… MGF's Open Mic Night

Okay, so here it goes. Are you in a band? Do you think that you don’t suck? Are you an un-chubby Ben Gibbard, or an un-bearded James Mercer, or perhaps even an un-British Sting? Prove it, you little jerk! Are you sick of only playing for your high school talent show and only getting three hits a month on your MySpace page? Here is your chance to expose yourself to literally tens of readers, so don’t blow it.

Send me your MySpace address (i.e. myspace.com/TheGingerRodleys), an mp3 of your hit single (i.e. “Never Again in the Pants”), or if you are ballsy enough to send the full CD e-mail me and I’ll give you the address to send it to (i.e. The Ginger Rodleys’ hit album, Rake/Rake/Mow/Mow, featuring their hit song “Never Again in the Pants”). You get the idea.

I will, in some fashion or another depending how many people participate in this, review your music on this site. Even if I tear it apart there are a lot of people who don’t agree with me and will therefore visit your MySpace site to see what the hell I’m talking about. That’s free press baby! I don’t promise to be nice, but I do promise to be a bit more constructive than I am for most of the albums I review.

If your band is heavy metal or the like, drag your leather pants and dog collars to Beyond The Threshold, a brother here at MGF. They have a similar column and I don’t want to step on any gothic toes. Although, they are probably wearing steel-tip Grinders so it won’t hurt if I do. Other than that, bring it on! Send your info to Shut_Up_Kozuh@yahoo.com. And if you’re a chick band, be sure to include a naughty photo, for, you know, critic purposes.

Good Luck and Don’t Waste My Time!!
