RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
I'm not too sure either I know the radio station in LA told Jazmin she could send them the song if she had the legal rights to do so.. I still think I may send them a CD and just see how it goes.. I asked J about that this morning as well.. but time is ticking away and by the time we get confirmations on everything VAMPS are going to be here already and the promotion is going to be pointless.

As to which song I don't know either since I'm really not at all into the American music scene so I'm not sure what all people is listening to these days..
L'arc~en~Ciel 20th L'Anniversary was amazing!!

Haha, yep! There's also PLJ (http://www.plj.com/) who aren't as big as Z100, but still pretty big.

And if you're gonna contact them, I will too, I mean the more people the better~ that's what we need - just everyone here to contact all the stations and maybe they'll catch on. 8D

I emailed them told them I would send them a packet with some vamps fliers etc.. its easier to email them I make one email for all radio stations >_< but yes please contact them !!

EDIT:

Anyone know any other big radio stations? I don't care at all to contact them and send info to them I have no life other than VAMPS lolol so I have all the time in the world to help promote them..

Has anyone heard of a video podcast called diggnation? yeah well I'm a huge computer geek so i watch this show regularly i sent them an email a few weeks ago with VAMPS tour dates etc and asked them if they could possibly help me promote them since their show is based in CA. They still haven't said anything on their show yet though.. so I don't know if it will work or not but I tried.

I am a geek too! way to go :D internet is the best way of promotion ^__^! also let's try facebook events!

Is anyone here into Second Life? I know there is a jrock community because I was a member of it when I had to use Second Life for a class assignment. They also have "concerts". Perhaps someone could hold a VAMPS one? I don't use SL anymore and it hated me anyway as it kept booting me out and crashing on me.

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
I mailed J also to see what he says about radio stations.

I also added all the dates to Yahoo!Upcoming events.
http://upcoming.yahoo.com/
I don't know how much that site it used though, haha. But I guess any site that lists concerts is good.

Hey Y'all,

Here is J's response the radio question:

Thanks for your message. Radio stations can play anything they want... legally, they are entitled to. The problem is that the album is not out yet, so usually I would send a copy of the album. Sending 3 singles is expensive and takes time, so digital files are best. If the radio station needs, I should be able to send them, but sadly I will be out of Japan for the next week. Please do your best without me, but if you need my support, or if you need me to send something I can do it.

Thank you so much!

-J


So I guess we can just send them mp3s.

EDIT: Here's another response he sent me. A little more detailed:

About rights, they should not be worried, what band would sue a radio station for playing their music!? Well, you can let them know you are a member of the official Street Team, and if they need proof of the rights, they can contact me directly. I have an email I use for this kind of contact only, j.myspace[at]vamprose.com

If the radio station agrees to play it, then I can send out the singles, but if they just want to hear it first, then usually it means the CDs will sit in a pile on the floor. I am a bit worried since so many people are trying to do this, we might have to send out many CDs and I will be out of Japan for the next 8 days.

Also, it is really important that the radio stations are in or near the cities with performances... I will give priority to those cities for now since time is limited...

In the end though, I can send out CDs if the radio stations are willing to hear/play VAMPS.

Thank you!

-J

YES!! *goes to make cds*

and also.. a friend of mine today tetsu_sama mentioned something interesting.. some movie theaters allow you to run short commercials before a movie.. and it doesn't seem to be too expensive.. I wonder how a short like under 30 seconds trailer for vamps would do if we could get theaters to show it?

RE: Vamps Sponsors & Promoting Ideas
Hm, I dunno. We'd have to find out how much it costs then we would also need to make a commercial. I don't know what format they use for commercials in movie theaters.

If someone could find out the price along with what type of format the commercial needs to be along with how big it needs to be (to fit the screen without getting fuzzy) then we could maybe do something like that.

Also, updated previous thread with another comment from J

If anyone can tell me some names and contact info of any of the movie theaters in the cities where VAMPS is going to be.. I will call them and find out more info on running a trailer for vamps.

Google listed the Landmark theaters as closest to SOMA in San Diego.

They have a contact tab with info under it.
