Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Hey bands — looking to make a little extra sumthin-sunthin at your next gig? If it happens to be at the Tractor Tavern and you're still looking around for an opening band, then we might have the perfect solution for you.

In this ad on Craigslist, local singer-songwriter Pilgrims of Faith makes the following plea:

Hello everyone. I want to play a show at the tractor tavern in Ballard, and I've done everything I could think of in the past 2 1/2 years, but they still will not reply. So I'm offering $50.00 to anyone who will let me open for them. I'm open to negotiation as well. I'm a Washington native, & I moved to Seattle to play music & meet like minded people. I have a myspace page you can listen to,

I just listened a bit and he sounds more than a little like Gordon Lightfoot, for whatever that's worth to you (and your band). More interestingly, this is the second time in recent times that I've seen a band attempt self promotion on Craigslist. Is this the new DIY way?

Any takers?
