Lost in the shuffle
All around the country, newspapers (and TV stations) are pumping up their local coverage. Local, local, local, ya know.
Well, a lot of times, lesser known nationally touring bands get lost in the shuffle. I mean, unless they're superhugepopular bands like U2 or the Jonas Brothers or Miley Cyrus or (you get the picture) ...
And local bands are getting plenty of play these days -- be it here on Midnight Sun or shows like Baltimore Unsigned or (you get the picture).
So when I get a press release for Party of Helicopters from Ohio coming to Baltimore, I'm probably not going to have anywhere to put a feature or Q&A on them, unless they're supersuperawesomeawesome. Maybe a blurb.
It's a shame for the nationally touring acts, but a boon for Baltimore bands. Shame we can't have both, though. But I'd rather pump Baltimore than Ohio. No offense, Ohio, but we are The Baltimore Sun.
