|first live journal entry

So ... now I have a live journal. I guess it's customary for the first entry to be awkward. I have nothing to worry about since every entry will be awkward.|
What's up with me this week is that I'm promoting two shows that are meant to complement SEAMUS 2002 in iowa city at the University of Iowa -- http://seamus2002.music.uiowa.edu
It's going to be very interesting -- basically the line up comprises the first 8 or 9 people who were willing to get to Iowa City under their own power and perform for whatever I manage to take in at the door. Even so some very good people are coming through -- you can see the lineups at http://avalon.net/~kent/cornwarning/PR.html -- It's known as OFF SEAMUS ...
I'm apprehensive, both because I've never done anything on this scale -- i.e. two nights, and because I'm having to pay for the venue the second night ... at any rate it's going to be interesting. The funniest thing is that it is a big enough deal that it spawned an OFF OFF SEAMUS event at the Theta Beta Potato house -- which is private home here in Iowa City that presents a wide variety of interesting shows, mostly having to do with the hardcore scene -- hardcore as in noisy rock, not as in white gloves glowsticks in the air hardcore.
Anyway I have a lot of details to handle -- finding relatively clean spots for folks to stay, putting together a sound system, etc ... it should be fun, but at this point I'm overwhelmed...
