Vinnie's going to be playing an exclusive acoustic StageIt show on Sun Feb 16 at 4 pm EST and he'll be rewarding a few people in the audience with some prized possessions of his, including the guitar he wrote most of AVALANCHE UNITED on, super rare THE MOVIELIFE HAS A GAMBLING PROBLEM vinyl, a very rare framed BRAND NEW/I AM THE AVALANCHE tour poster, a limited edition laser-etched vinyl copy of my "City By The Sea" EP and a signed & screen printed poster from a tour that he and Brandon Reilly (of THE MOVIELIFE and NIGHTMARE OF YOU) did a few years ago.
Here's more info about the gig from Vin:
All you need to attend is a computer and a good internet connection; no matter where you live, anyone can attend the show, but this gig is limited to the first 400 people who sign up on StageIt's site. I'm going to be playing solo acoustic songs of mine plus I Am The Avalanche and The Movielife songs, and maybe a cover and a request or two too. Everyone who attends will be able to chat online with me during the show too. So get into the gig, here's what you need to do:
1) Go to http://bit.ly/1e2aRT8. Only the first 400 people to sign up will be able to attend my performance, so don't wait until the day of the show...
2) If you have never attended a StageIt show before, click on the "Join StageIt" link in the upper left-hand corner of the page. If you have attended a StageIt show before, click the "Sign In" link in the upper left-hand corner
3) Once you're logged into StageIt, click on the green "GET TICKET" button on my show page (http://bit.ly/1e2aRT8). There you'll be able to purchase "Notes" (each StageIt Note is worth US$.10). "Notes" are what you use to buy tickets to shows on StageIt, as tip artists during their performances. Admission to my show on February 16th costs just US$5.
4) I'm going to be rewarding the top 5 tippers during my show with some very special personal possessions of mine:
- the Ibanez acoustic/electric guitar, in excellent condition, that I wrote most of "AVALANCHE UNITED" on, including the song "Brooklyn Dodgers" (including hard case). I'll send the top tipper who exceeds 5,000 Notes this guitar...
- a very rare, professionally framed BRAND NEW/I AM THE AVALANCHE/THE XCERTS show poster from our show at The Roundhouse in London on Feb 11, 2012. This poster is numbered #8 and is only among a handful of "tour edition" versions of this poster that were printed and given out to the band members on the tour only. This particular poster is the one I was personally given.
- a SUPER rare numbered "THE MOVIELIFE HAS A GAMBLING PROBLEM" clear picture disc (numbered #5 out a 1000 pressed)
- a rare signed transparent green with white marble vinyl version of my EP "THE CITY BY THE SEA", with the album art laser-etched on one side
- a rare screen printed, hand-numbered poster from a tour that Brandon Reilly (of NIGHTMARE OF YOU and THE MOVIELIFE) and I did together in 2011 (numbered #84 out of 100), with artwork by world-renowned tattoo artist Marina Inoue.
Please pass the word along about the gig and be sure to sign up as soon as you can if you want to be there. Hope to see a bunch of you on February 16!
