Since this thread in years past had started as the Artist Direct Confirmation
[/u] thread we would like to go back to that. Get the confirmations from the bands themselves. Ideally you could get an answer at a concert/show or get them to respond on twitter or facebook. If they have a public e-mail address then go ahead and try that.
Stick with contacting artists. Please leave the bookers/managers and all that alone. We can't control what you do but from now on if your confirmation comes from that we won't use it. They're clearly annoyed by it and since we know SF/ACE are aware of this we don't want to piss off the wrong people. Also don't want to get anyone in trouble. Needs to come from the artists directly.
We appreciate the enthusiasm and effort of everyone who has contacted anyone in the past. It's been great but we'd like to take this thread back to what it originally was. It's more fun to get it from the band themselves anyway. Thanks everybody....back to your regularly scheduled program [/quote]
