To promote their two shows at Brooklyn's BRIClab, Ethel and Gutbucket took to the internet for guerrilla marketing, posting a competition for free tickets on Facebook. (Note: To view the page, you must have a Facebook account.)
The rather tech-savvy competition involves using your Facebook or Twitter account to post a status/tweet with a link to www.briconline.org/bricstudio. Once done, all you have to do is e-mail your name, phone number, and a screen capture of or link to your post to BRIConline. Then they do a drawing; if you're picked, you're in for free!
The two BRIClab gigs (Thursday, May 7, and Saturday, May 9) are slightly unusual music for film projects involving the two bands playing with a screening the 1960 "classic" Mexican sci-fi B-film La Nave De Los Monstruos. A quick description of the plot:
"Hot Venusians in leotards crash land in Mexico with a ship of abducted man-monsters: robots fall in love with jukeboxes; aliens are revealed to be vampires; the atom bomb destroys planets...plus a campy, Rocky Horror-style audience role. Should be good times."
Good times, indeed. For those without Facebook or Twitter and who need to purchase tickets, click here. For more on Ethel and Gutbucket, be sure to check out:
