First and foremost THANK YOU all for supporting this show! Especially on a Monday! Jobs, homework, babysitters, budgets, are all things that can affect the outcome of a successful turnout, but ya'll did it anyway! Again Thank you so much!
I've always heard GREAT GREAT things about this big big band from the UK called
Bloc Party, so I went on a downloading spree and was instantly hooked. Being a performer myself, i'm all about the live show. I'm really fascinated by where artists take their live performances - The energy.. Connection with the crowd. Its special.. I started asking around about the next time they'd be performing live in Texas. Unfortunately, I was told i'd probably never see em' live unless I took a trip to the UK or Lollapalooza. So my wheels started spinnin..
Carlton Zeus is not a promoter..
I'm just a local musician dude that wanted to bring more good music to San Antonio, Texas. We did really well last year with music & merch sales, thanks to ya'll! So, I figured I'd try my best to do something worthwhile with what ya'll supported us with.
In addition to that, to better understand my craft, I always kinda maybe sorta wanted to see what it was like on the other side of booking. So as unlikely as it seemed, I thought it was worth a shot.
Worst case scenario:
I lose a lot of money and hang my head in shame for 20 mins or so..
"Some ppl said San Antonio wasn't ready..."
Everyday since we've announced this show, i've been on the phone & email coordinating with Josabis to make sure this show was as big and smooth as a 500,000 elephants wrapped in silk.
Easier said than done, but in the end, it was beyond anything i'd ever imagined. Hours before we opened the gates, there was a line wrapped around the parking lot with the most interesting and upbeat people. I left to go pick up the band from their hotel and as we pulled up, it was like... the same feeling I had when i saw snow in Brownsville, TX for the first time..
Big special thanks to Josabis for standing by me on this!
