Event descriptions

Just updated our Myspace page with info on our upcoming Old Town Artisans gig. As usual, I was stymied when entering a description of the event.

If we're doing something like a cancer benefit, I can say a little about the cause and talk about the other activities that will be happening. If we're performing at a new place, I can say a little about the place. When it's a venue we've played before -- or many times before -- writing something new becomes a challenge. As I stare at the blank page, I compose in my head:

"It's a gig. If you're reading this, you already know what we sound like. Hope you can make it."

This is not the kind of copy that draws a crowd.
