RE: Promoting VAMPS and other stuff...
This is a Seattle network. I have no idea how popular it is, but there is a link for suggestions for news stories. Anyone familiar with them?

Anyone have suggestions for a Portland news network?

Sure, in Portland we have:

http://www.katu.com/
http://www.kgw.com/
http://www.koinlocal6.com/
http://www.kptv.com/index.html

I submitted "events" for the Portland show to all of the ones that had someplace to submit an event, but none of them are showing the VAMPS show on their calendars. Icon_crying

:-/ Damn, I really don't know how this things work, here in Mexico the artist manager or himself has to send a press kit, most of the times, the promise of an exclusive whatever nails the whole thing.

Events is not enough...that would only make the calendar. What we want is for it to make the news. So, we need to make VAMPS newsworthy. I think of all of the Japanese singers/bands, Hyde is the one most likely to crossover into American charts, etc. THAT is the story. That and the appeal of Japanese bands to begin with.

I am sure VAMPS has a press kit, however it's really going to be fan appeal/demand that makes them newsworthy. In my opinion anyway.

You are probably right, unfortunately around media (and a lot of other enterprises) the selection of characters/info depends a lot on the criteria/mood of the editor-in-chief/info-chairman. Sometimes bands get covered because the niece of the reporter or whomever gets to make the choice is in love with the guitarist or something like that X-D

Anyway... anyone has addresses? I want to send letters/mails! :-D

Let's start w/the links above.

It can be as easy as asking, "Can you tell me about the group VAMPS?"

If you want to post multiple posts, do it from different places, in case they check IP addresses.

Also, maybe we can all do searches for Hyde +vamps +"K.A.Z." on something like Google news. I wonder how many times it would take for it to appear in the "Most often searched" category?
Okay... how about People Magazine? Here's the link to contact them: http://www.people.com/people/about
I just sent an email to editor@people.com (People Magazine)

I googled different combinations of: "VAMPS HYDE KAZ USA TOUR VENUE BAND 2009" nonstop for 15 minutes X-D

Also sent a news tips to:
newstips@king5.com
thedesk@katu.com
newstips-8@kgw.com
koindesk@koin.com
fox12news@kptv.com

I thing it is a good idea to send also news tips to other states local news sites X-D I will look for some at San Diego, the place is very quiet so I figure VAMPS've got a greater chance than in LA.

cool! I think you're right about LA being harder than other places. I'll email the places you listed tomorrow. Hopefully others will, too!

Thank you very much ^^

They're yours. :) Just sent them out, they should be there by the weekend! Put 'em to good use! \o/

Thank you very much :D I will!

Um, I haven't picked up my mail yet today, but I was getting worried because they haven't arrived yet..

They arrived yesterday! Sorry for being impatient... I tried to post them at a mall near where I live, but they said no soliciting. But one of the workers was nice and said she'd put them in the workers' office ^^ That doesn't qualify as a sponsor though, does it?
