    hey y’all,
    didn’t wanna be like those guys, but it seems this is the only way to contact you.
    we’re playing at nectar’s next thursday and being from new york we’ve never played burlington before…
    at the same time, having hung out there a decent amount a few years back, i think y’all would really dig us.
    lemme know if it tickles you in the pants region.

    Hi there!
    The folks from Nectar’s suggested we contact you about a possible blog entry about our band, SIRSY. SIRSY is playing live at NECTAR’S on Saturday. The show starts at 9PM. It’s an 18 and over show.

    A photo of our band (SIRSY) is available here: http://www.sirsy.com/epk/index.htm

    We’d be happy to send you any information you might need to help in your promotions.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Hey guys!

    The Ragbirds, a wolrd beat/folk rok Gypsy groove band from Ann Arbor Michigan are playing their first show at Nectars in Burlington next Thursday April 10th. Described as “Infectious Global Groove” The Ragbirds are one of the busiest touring bands in the mid-west and are making their first foray to Vermont on the way to NYC. ” “The Ragbirds have gestated a sound and experience so unlike anything you’ve seen in these parts, you may begin to wonder if you’ve teleported to another land”
    -Cheryl Wilson, The Uncommon Sense Magazine”
