SF Digest Me Now
by Danish Aziz
Did anyone else find it “ironic” that “Angel” Island caught on fire?
I got some “positive feedback” in the form of “your email sucks” from a delightful “young chap” at a “BBQ” on Sunday. I learned that his “complaint” stemmed from the fact that many DNMRK endorsed shows are apparently “sold out” by the time the “DNMRK Email Team” gets the product out the door.
To avoid this in the future, I will now have Drudge-style alerts for shows that are coming up within 30 days and will likely sell out. The bad news is that Lykke Li and The Black Keys have already sold out 😦
