CoverBandsSuck.com is another free and DIY music blogging site.
It all started back in 2003 with a simple t-shirt. At the time I was the owner/editor of Origivation Magazine (I gave it away in 2006 because I moved to Arizona) and was looking for unique ways to promote it. I’d often hear bands complain about the thriving cover scene in Philly and so – the ‘cover bands suck’ t-shirt was born. Stupid, right? I agree. The t-shirt made its debut at the Dewey Beach Music Conference where 200 were given away for free (courtesy of Synergy Print Design).
In it’s first incarnation, coverbandssuck.com was just a place where you could order the t-shirt. Eventually that evolved into a random thoughts kind of website. And from 2007 – 2010 it was nothing.
Now it’s 2011 and I’ve got a reasonable hold on this whole blogging / WordPress thing, as well as a bunch of touring, management and booking experience…. time to fire up CoverBandsSuck.com again!
And the t-shirts…. yeah, they’re back.
