all I see is

PM Sent
PM'd you
PM Sent
Messaged You

Does my bloody head in. Do these folk send their friends and family a text to tell them they are calling?

As Jeremy Clarkson would say "NO NEEEEEEED"

:-D

I agree with all the above. I can never understand that either Scott.

unfortunately the lack of sent items and reliabilty of this sites pm system suggests such posts are a catch all for the attention of the venue.

A necessary evil to those who suffer pm paranoia or adverse to picking up a phone perhaps?

Nice one Mick!

Actually, I think many of the PM senters do it because it also informs their other band members they have already contacted the venue, to avoid even more direct PM emails & phone calls from the same band - making Mick's picture in need of even more people! Makes some sense.

This is just one of my annoyances on here. How about those who blog Thank You to venues' wtf is that all about, why thank them ? or when the successful act actually comments 'Gig sorted', as if its gonna be snatched from under their noses.

Slightly off-topic, but in the same vein as Tel's post.
Why do people say that they're "Live" and "on stage"?
Generally, bands are live but usually stuck in a corner of a pub.
It could be worse though,they could say "In Concert"

Also..Thanking a wedding gig when everyone except the groom hated yr fkn guts for stopping guests 'who hadn't seen each other for years' talking, even though they also hate each others guts.
The bar staff also detest you because they're on zero contracts and the bride just wants to get to bed.

Tel it as it is.
