Get on Our Top List - New Fun Ways To Link

Would you like to be on MusicRVA and connected sites Top List? We have introduced a new fun way to get your links or banners shown on our network for next to nothing. You will be helping to support bands, music, and its great fun too!

Here are your options, which will soon be on the sidebar of our blogs and sites. If you participate, your text links or image links will show up in our Top Site Boxes for the duration of time you "tip" us for. Here are your options.

TEXT LINK
10 slots available.
With this option, you tip the site $1 if you like what we are about and your link will immediatly show up in our box. The catch here is that each slot that you tip us for "bumps" the one at the top down one, and once the 10 slots are filled, the 11th tipper bumps the bottom tipper off.

This is a fun and exciting way to get your links shown, and depending on the amount of tips, your link could be visible for an hour or 2, or a week or 2.

The $1 "Tip Jar" will be Black

Update: Find these boxes here:

Sojournstar Music Blog!

MusicRVA Writers Blog!

TEXT LINK
Duration 1 week
10 Slots available

Your second option is a 1 week text link for a measly $2. Your link will stay on the Top List for the entire week, and then will automaticly fall off after the 1 week duration time.

The $2 "Tip Jar" will be Red
To the sidebar is a working example, you may "tip" now to try it out!

Update: Find these boxes here:

MusicRVA Main Blog!

Diaries of an Aging Rock and Roller!

BANNER/IMAGE LINK
Duration 1 Month
10 slots available

Your 3rd option is a 1 month banner/logo link for only $5. Again your links will stay there a full entire month. This is the best option if you have a logo or banner

The $5 "Tip Jar" is Orange

Update: Find these boxes here:

RVA Events Blog!

Wow, what a great way to get your link on a high traffic blog or website. Every time you tip us, you get linked.
Something for something instead of something for nothing!

And the best part is, your links will be visible all the way thru our networks, wherever there is a Top List Box, (at this time I am counting 10 sites, but it will probably be displayed on many more.

All tips are paid to Paypal........

So if you appreciate what this site is trying to do for music, and you want to support music and bands, tell us you like what we are doing and "tip" us! All tips are put right back into the maintenance and continuing betterment of our goal to help music be heard.

Try it today!




If you can not see the video try the link.

Watch video!

NOTE: I will post updates on the tip boxes to let you know where they are being placed as I place each series.

New Band Seeking Vocalist!

Looking for a Male vocalist for a side project featuring members of Morgueasm. You must be 21+, have some basic musical knowledge, and charisma.


The sound is kind of an old school industrial, think Front 242 or Chemlab,meets some new school EBM... a la Combichrist, Covenant.


The band name is "These Machines are Weapons". We are in Richmond, VA and have a pretty decent amount of gear.


Email at darien@morgueasm.com or aim me at prepare4somedoom

Peace

-Darien Starr

Don't Lose Your Domain Name!

by Marc Gunn

That always shocks me. I was composing the shownotes for my Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, checking URLs. One of the bands in this week's show had a domain that was no longer functional. It expired two months ago and was about to be released to the public. Fortunately, I knew her and gave her a call.

She had no idea the domain was ending, but since her band broke up she didn't think it worthwhile to keep the domain running. As she said, "Well, I have the CDBaby page, and a lot of folks are using myspace URLs."

Tis true, tis true. But for everyone who lived through the heyday of MP3.com, you should know never to trust an external domain for your promotion. Myspace.com is a great site. But will it be around in five years? Who knows?

Personally, I put no faith in that. I promote TheBards.net, MarcGunn.com, BardsCrier.com or whatever website I'm promoting. Myspace, SoundClick, even CDBaby are temporary. They could poof disappear any day, God forbid.

Fortunately, you can get domains these days for just $8.99 through sites like GoDaddy.com. Or if you're in my friend's predicament, you can Backorder the site for just $18.99, which means, once the domain becomes free from its current owner, you can re-take control of its ownership if you lost it.

The important thing is don't let this happen to you. You never know when you will need that URL once again. So register your URL and keep it forever.

Toads Place - Closed until further notice

Toad's Place is currently closed.

A posting on the inside and outside walls of the live music club at 140 Virginia St. on the Canal Walk reads that due to "serious default in rental payment and other obligations . . . " the venue was closed today.

The notice comes from Kiniry and Co., the managing agents for Fulton Hill Properties, landlord for the building.

According to the posting, a notice of default was given to manager Charles Joyner on Feb. 20 and the "landlord exercises its right to re-enter the premises and remove Tenant from possession."

No shows are scheduled at the venue until Friday, when rapper Busta Rhymes is supposed to perform.

2 bands needed to fill 2 spots in RVA

I am looking for 2 bands to fill a spot on Friday April 3rd, at a Poe's sized club in Mechanicsville.
The first and third spots are open, money will not be very much most likely, will find out more on that later,
but exposure is always worth more than a few dollars when you are gathering a following.
If your band is free and is interested, or if you know of a band that would be interested, please contact me either at http://www.myspace.com/musicrva or http://profile.to/sojournstarmusic/ ,
and let me know. 2 bands will be chosen, so respond asap.

I am not looking for anything super hard core, mostly alternative, rock and roll, rockabilly, folksy, or any variation
of that in the bands.

Save loads of money by shopping direct through merchants

I just noticed the other day that we have a Direct Buy here in Richmond. Actually there are 5 locations in Richmond, Chesapeake, Roanoke, Woodbridge, and
Chantilly
and I wondered if anyone has checked it out yet. I have heard good things about it and that they have really good deals on all kinds of furniture.

If any of you have ever shopped at Direct Buy Chantilly, or any other one of the stores in the area, please leave some comments and tell us what you think!
