View Full Version : Worst Fail in the History of Fails

My band, the Black Dots (www.myspace.com/bdots), have been together in various lineups since 2004, and finally this summer, it seems that we were starting to catch on, playing 3 shows in one month, and so on. We are recording an EP in November, and all of that fun stuff...
Until we get a manager, I have been doing all the manager-y stuff, like booking and such. My phone was on the fritz last week.
Unfortunately for me, one of the guys who books us was trying to get a hold of me (i was unaware of course, with my phone not working). Got my phone working today, and he called me, saying he had tried to get a hold of me last week to get us on Liskfest.
Liskfest : Oct 11 in Irvine. with the Vandals, Gorilla Biscuits, Strung Out, Bleeding Through, Everytime I Die....

Alas since he couldnt get a hold of me... the spot was filled.

God. Dammit.

Woooow. My condolences. Maybe you should include an email address in your contact info. Man, that really sucks.

Oh wow that sucks really bad. But who knows? Maybe when the Offspring go on their tour of America you'll open for them or something? :D

The guy actually did have our email, and our myspace, so he couldve gotten a hold of us that way.... but he decided not to.

All I have to say is....ouch. If I had done that, I would not sleep for at least a week. I would lie awake at night cursing the heavens for my terrible luck....
