Do you want to dance?
Do you want to fight?
Do you want to put up posters in the night??
AFP and The Grand Theft Orchestra are hitting the road to make up the postponed dates: starting in Europe and the UK this summer, then to OZ & New Zealand, then back to Europe in November.
You know the story: we need YOUR HELP to get the word out locally. SO? We ask you to do your part – however you can, to help us spread the word – and then when you show us what you’ve done, we’ll give you thanks in the form of: meet and greets with Amanda, extra show tickets, a personal video or sound clip from AFP, and MORE, more, more…we’re trying to keep it interesting.
We want to see and share pictures of your creative flying and promo, we want to hear stories about your adventures, we want to know all about the new people you meet and the experiences you have…you are OUR delegates on the streets of rock. Ready? Read on.
A list of the European and UK leg of the tour is below. For a FULL list of tour dates, show information, and ticket links: please visit bit.ly/SeeAFP
We tried to make it arty and fun:
Amanda took a Sharpie and made a unique image for each show so that you can PRINT THAT SHIT OUT or grab it to RUN AMOK ON THE INTERWEBZ…do…THINGS!
View ALL the show flyers in HERE on Flickr and download the poster for the show in your city. Hang the poster up around town, hit the coffee shops, hit the yoga studios, plaster your derby meet, bring ‘em to parties, put them up on your university bulletin boards, leave a flyer on the dashboard of your ex’s car, etc. Place a flyer wherever bills are allowed to be posted (aaaaand always ask permission to post a flyer if you’re in a place of business). Here’s some more info & tips to get you started on this type of shizzle: The Grand Theft Street Team Flyer Resource Page
THE SHADOWBOX: The Street Team Hub
Use the forum as a hub of information and connection for all your postering/art activities. The Box is a major resource if you need help, or want to organize efforts with other folks in your city. It’ll also be where you should post pictures of your work, reports of your activities, and enter contests for prizes. Head on over to The Reconnaissance and dig in!
ONLINE STREET TEAM RESOURCES
We’ve set up contest widgets to help you share info about the tour online and automatically enter to win tickets to the concert. Find the tourdate in your city and follow the prompts to earn points in the contest. (BTW, you can enter every day up until the day of the show.)
And…other ways to participate online:
+ Post a picture on Instagram showing us where you’ve placed the AFP show flyers and use the hashtag #AFPtour – you can also tag AFP at @amandapalmer
+ Post your own “Sharpie picture” – inspired by Amanda’s – with the show information. Like Prince says, “let’s go crazy, let’s get nuts!”
+ Post a flyer to a show on your Tumblr page and use appropriate tags on your post (i.e. “Amanda Palmer”, “concert”, the city name, etc).
+ Post a tweet about an upcoming show, be sure to tag @amandapalmer, use the hashtag #AFPtour, and always link to amandapalmer.net/bit.ly/SeeAFP – Don’t forget: getting people to shows and eyeballs on that show page is why we’re doing this!
+ We’ll be adding some assets for you on Pinterest, Vine, YouTube, Vimeo, Google+, and more…
ALSO: We’ll be giving you even more suggestions for the above social networks…stay tuned and get creative!
