Hello, Potential Agent & Helpers!
What's your name?
Where are you based?
What's your e-mail?
If the responsibilities of Agent, below, seem a bit much for you to handle, that's cool. Send off the above info and I'll pass on your info to your city's Agent as someone who's willing to help in a less-central way:
OK, now -- the 3-4 crewmembers who will be performing will
probably be looking for a bed/couch/floor to sleep on for the night if they
don't know anyone else in town. (They'll take care of their food and other
things, although any guidence from you will be appreciated.) Will you be able
to arrange this?
Strangers? On my floor?! My god, no!
The local act will be your choice. Bands are good for mixing
up the genres, but anyone with an interesting and compelling 10-15 minute
act -- ie., not a drone-a-thon reading -- would be perfectly suitable. Ideally
it'd also be someone that'll also bring a few extra people out to the show.
Can you think of a couple of people you'd like to invite to be the local act?
We will provide you with handbills and poster art, and you
will spread them around to the people and places you think appropriate. Promo
will also be being done in advance by the Crewmembers, who will be emailing
contacts and mailing out press packs. Howzat sound?
Sounds like hell on earth.
We're asking Agents to commit to a minimum of three consecutive
months. (If it happens that you won't be in town for the date that the Roadshow's
coming through, appointing a reliable Substitute Agent is fine.) All righty?
Count me in for three months!
Three months is a gigantic temporal space beyond my comprehension.
Where'd you hear about the Roadshow?
