Details from showbread.net/news.phpIn November 16th Showbread will release a new album Who Can Know It? as a completely free download. February 25th-April 2011 we will be embarking on a national tour to support the album that will also be completely free.

To plan and execute such an unusual task we need your help. Here is what we need to make each show happen:

(1) a building to host the event. The building must be adequate/appropriate to host a concert/hold an audience. it doesn't have to be tremendously huge, it can actually be relatively small within reason. There must be no danger of violating any sort of noise ordinance. There must be adequate parking for the band and concert attendees. There must be adequate power to handle a sound system, lights, etc.

(2) Showbread controls the event. Showbread requires complete control of the event for the day/evening it transpires (i.e. Showbread will decide when the event begins and ends within reason of that locations specific circumstances, Showbread will decide the order, operation and execution of the event, etc.) There will be no other bands on tour with Showbread and there will be no other bands (local or otherwise) added to the event. Showbread is planning a multimedia event that includes a performance by the band, not a traditional rock concert. Promoters looking to help host an event should view it as booking a play or ballet; they simply work to provide accommodations, they have no control or contribution to the event itself.

(3) The event is 100% free. There will be absolutely no charge for admission. Showbread will not be paid for their performance and neither will the promoter be paid for hosting the event. A donation box will be available for attendees to contribute to if/as they see fit in order to help the band pay for gas and other tour expenses. No profit will be generated from attendance.

(4) Sound. We need a PA setup adequate to handle the performance (i.e. at least three vocal microphones, instrument microphones, a mixer that can handle at least very high wattages, not the PA your band practices with, not the PA you use for house shows.)

It would be ideal to host the event in places already equipped for concerts (venues, churches, etc.) but given the unusual nature of the tour we are prepared to be as resourceful as possible.

how can you help? Do you have access to (or know someone who might) the things we need to host a show on this free tour? Can you assist in some way in arranging one of these events? write showbreadbooking@yahoo.com

serious inquiries only. please do not write to ask us to play your town unless you have resources to actually arrange a show.

How does this band make any money? I realize money isn't everything, especially to these guys, but you gotta make a living somehow.
