Metal Mafia Nationwide (The New Mexico Connection)
As much shit that I talk about Facebook, it’s really a blessing in disguise. That’s how I found The Living Doorway, how I get a taste of bands that would otherwise remain unknown, and how I keep track of important events. And as far as events are concerned, Facebook is worth it just for the excellent promotion skills of Metal Mafia Nationwide. This is an internet based network of underground bands, venues, and promoters who can post flyers and other media for their upcoming concerts.
I like to think I do a pretty decent job of giving local shows the exposure that they deserve. However, since the Metal Mafia allows the bands and venues to post their stuff directly, it eliminates the need for a middle-man such as myself. Then again, it sucks to scroll through a page and a half of posts quoting Avenged Sevenfold lyrics, just to get a hold of some decent info. I guess you do need me after all.
Anyway, to give you the best of both worlds, I’ll direct you to the New Mexico Connection of the Metal Mafia, and show you some of the flyers for upcoming shows that I didn’t mention last time. And for those of you (un)fortunate enough to live outside of this state, they have profiles for other regions too.
