If you’re on our mailing list, you probably saw we had some bits there in fine print about a top-secret show that we weren’t allowed to announce, even if we got the gig. Well… guess what… WE GOT THE GIG! Wheeeeeeeeee!
But it’s kind of a mixed blessing– it’s a really big deal for us, but it’s strange because nobody (not even the promoter) is allowed to advertise it. It’s a secret-invite-only thing, and there are very few tickets available because of the size of this venue.
So here’s what we can tell you:
On Saturday, October 6th, a Rather Famous Person is doing a private concert for a private event at an intimate venue in Arden, DE. This show is purposely not being advertised. The promoter asked us to be the opener for this Rather Famous Person and his/her Band, but we had to get The Rather Famous Person’s approval first. We were originally told that this Rather Famous Person didn’t want a female-fronted band opening for him/her, so we figured we’d be out of the running, but I guess they changed their mind, so we’re on!
The thing is, we can’t tell you who this Rather Famous Person is. We’re not allowed to advertise the show in any way that Google could ever get a hold of… so no Facebook, no Twitter, no blogging, nothing… not even after the show has passed. We are allowed to invite people via email and phone only, and we have to get the invitees to swear that they will not mention it online.
So it’s kinda like winning a medal but not being able to tell anyone about it. But that’s OK… some things you do for the experience and not for the glory.
If you’d like to get an invite to this show, email us and tell us why you’d like to come. We’ve got a few tickets left, and it’s a first-come, first-served kind of thing. Tickets are $20. Yes, we realize you’re considering paying $20 to see us play a 40-minute opening set and then sitting through a concert by a person you may actually hate passionately (very doubtful), but you’re the gamblin’ type, we can tell.
We should also mention that we are thoroughly in love with this Rather Famous Person and have been for a few years, and we would be attending this show even if we weren’t opening. We have their albums and they are wonderful. You will *not* be disappointed.
(And for those of you keeping track… yes, we copied the contents of our recent mailing-list newsletter to a blog entry, but the promoter asked us to remove the fine print because he feared it gave away too much info. So if you’re looking for that fine print in the online version of the newsletter, it’s gone.)
WHEN: Saturday, October 6, 2012, 8pm.
WHAT: Hot Breakfast! plays a 40-minute opening set for A Rather Famous Person in a Very Intimate Venue. If you email us requesting a ticket, we’ll tell you who the Rather Famous Person is, but you will be sworn to secrecy.
WHERE: The Buzz, Arden DE
TICKETS: $20. If you want to attend, you need to email us, and then we’ll put you in touch with the promoter who will get payment from you. It’s very secret.
PARKING: There’s a parking lot, and also street parking.
FOOD: No food. There may be beverages… not sure.
Anyway, we’d love for you to attend. We’re only advertising this show stealthily through this blog and by pointing people to the blog. You’ve gotta be a fan to attend.
We’d love to see you!
