    Default Help The Tet Holiday (my band) play Noise Pop 2009

    Hello friends.

    This website, OurStage, is having a contest. The winner can potentially play SF's famous Noise Pop fest, which for the uninitiated is a couple of weeks of really great music in clubs throughout the city.

    You can help us win in two ways (to my knowledge. This site is so fucking poorly designed that I am not positive. Don't let this turn you off. I'll walk you through it):

    1. LISTENING, NOT ACTUAL JUDGING: http://www.ourstage.com/music/channe...-wanna-give-it

    See that link? Listen to our song. Over and over and over again. I mean, it is a pretty good song, so unless you dislike good songs, that shouldn't be a problem, right?

    2. ACTUAL JUDGING: This is the more involved way. But it is not terribly involved. We aren't talking economics class here. This is what you do if you want to be on our guest list when we play your town. I'm not joking. I would do this for you.

    -Create a profile
    -Click the tab that says "Judge"
    -Choose the stage that says "Music" and the channel that says "Noise Pop 2009"
    -Wade through some of the bands until you get to us. Some of them are actually pretty solid. Some of them suck le ballsack.
    -Vote in our favor. Drive us to the top.
    -Repeat this periodically throughout the month of November


    We clear? Good to go? Awesome. If you have any questions, please contact myself or our manager, bmack86.

    In all seriousness, I would really appreciate your guys' help. I think we are definitely good enough to play this festival and hope you guys think so too. Thanks in advance.

    <3,
    Andrew

    PS I am going to be bumping this shit constantly. Don't think it will disappear.

    PSS Even if you don't go the actual judging route, I would appreciate if you create a profile and add some comments on the song if you like it or something. It will at least raise our profile a bit. "Oh hey, this band is pretty good." If you think that. That sort of thing. Don't bullshit though, if you don't dig it, that's fine.

    I listened. So, do you guys go up in standings just from judging or does number of listens count as well?

    Let me rephrase that. Does signing up and judging you help way more than just listening?

    Yes, but it is up to you if you want to do that. Listening doesn't do anything as far as I know beyond increasing the play count. Which looks good, but doesn't help in terms of the contest. I don't really expect people to do the judging because there is far more to it, as you can see. But if you want to go that route, that would be great.

    Also, thank you for listening.

    Also, you only have to listen to 15 seconds of each one to judge. But there are some really bad 15 seconds.

    Okay, so I've been picking people for a whole hour. There are some pretty good bands out there. I still haven't seen yours, though!! I don't want to start over either

    I'm judging right now, and you're right, there are some shitty 15 seconds in here.

    Worse than the ThunderChickens? I haven't gotten to Grandpa Rock yet. This is pretty entertaining though.

    Crap, I didn't get to hear the ThunderChickens; after I got through Andrew's band, I quit.

    I still haven't gotten to his band yet and I'm getting repeats - I'm determined to vote for them though. How long did it take?

    Maybe about 1/2 hour or so; I did the one where you rank four at once and I just listened to about 15 to 30 seconds of each one. I had to go through 14 matchups of four bands each to get to his.

    You have to go through other bands just to get to his band? Yikes. I'll try this at some point, but that's a big negative.

    Lucky! I got you guys on the first battle. Needless to say, you guys just put the hurt on Kim Garison.

    This cracked me up for some reason.

    Thanks a lot to those who took the time to vote. Seriously. We really, really appreciate the effort and the support. I'm sorry for the stuff you had to sit through. And for the nature of the site.

    Sitting through the shit isn't that bad because it's only 15 seconds and there's usually hilarious album art to lessen the pain.

    Tet Holiday is currently #1. If people keep this up, I think they win by default.

    Wow. Awesome. Thanks everyone who is voting.

    I also found out you can vote multiple times...feel free to do so if so inclined.

    Granted, there are still 18 days of this left, but wow. We really appreciate the effort people are going to in order to vote for us.

    I'll vote again over the weekend when I have some time. It was kinda fun.

    I think it would be hilarious if you had to open for someone like Dinosaur Jr.

    Why, because I would lose my shit beforehand? Because I would. Even though I have now met J. and Lou.

    That would actually be pretty sweet because people wouldn't get turned off by the volume we play at.

    And some of the art for the songs is hilariously bad. People take themselves too seriously when they pose for album art.

    I'd like to do the super serious pose, but be fat and goofy looking like I am. That'd be a statement.
