Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
  •  The EvO:R-Pedia Musicians Tips Section


    Welcome to the EvO:R Tips Section. We call this section EvO:R-Pedia because it is like a complete reference library for Indie musicians...Just about every tip has been used so you won't find false promises and a series of books to buy after reading each tip. This section was put here by musicians so that people that followed can take this knowledge and use it's power.




    Creating a online buzz
    with Mark Nance

    WEEN, a band that had a cult following in the early 90's (mostly thanks to Beavis & Butt-head showing that damn "...Daisies" video), they never really "hit" it big time, yet on-line...

    EVERYONE I know (and that's a lot of people) that has a computer and uses it to get music has at LEAST 1 WEEN Mp3. This is due, in large part, to the band's open trading policy. They encourage their on-line fans to trade everything they have of them... studio tracks, live stuff... all of it. And they let you tape at their shows... someone once called them the "phish of internet geeks" or something like that.

    The last show I went to was posted on-line three different places BY THE TIME I MADE THE THREE HOUR DRIVE HOME...

    Last year they released an online album just for their fans and they only had it up for download for 24 hours... a year later you're "lame" if you don't have it because it is on EVERY good FTP site that caters to ween... and they didn't announce it's release date or anything... one day it was there, the next day it wasn't. Now everyone has it.

    It helps when the band updates their own website instead of the record company... every month or so they put up a new song or concert that only they have... FREE to download from their site, and by the end of the month, all the FTP's have it.

    Rolling Stone magazine last year awarded Ween Radio the third place award in best internet music site... one ahead of the site for the technology that runs weenradio, and behind only Napster and one other huge one (SonicNet I think). And only because the online fans put them there!
