This thread is for the purpose of promoting Blind Melon, The Blind Melon Forum, The Vigil, Nel Hoon's Jewelry, and other melon-related subject matter.
Please feel free to use any of the resources here to promote all-things-melon! And if you have any designs that you would like to submit, just send a PM to me or any of the staff members here at the Forum.
Not that we get very "business-like" 'round here, but having a little business card piece of paper with the url name of the forum already printed on it is pretty helpful when you are at a Blind Melon show.
You can look for a variety of paper at your local office supply store. You can sometimes find just plain card stock that will run through a regular deskjet printer. You can also find perforated/scored card stock, like Meredith used. . .
Ive printed out tons of business type cards to hand out at shows. I spent 6 dollars at walmart and got some business kit from Avery with 150 cards. www.avery.com
If you haven't heard of the Demand yet or would like to pass it around here is a link to the BLIND MELON DEMAND. Basically you demand them to play in your city and can pass around the banners to let others know to demand Blind Melon. Its pretty cool!
To say thank you for spreading the melon love I am willing to offer 10 Karma points to members per link advertising the forum, Blind Melon, or Eye and Mind Designs. Just send me a PM showing me where you linked the forum, the Blind Melon Myspace page, or Nel's jewelry site. The link has to be somewhere else besides this forum. Also if you show me a picture of printed flyers or business cards promoting these things I will also give you 10 Karma points.
LdyAbsnth has shared this graphic with us. You can print these out and use them as lighter wraps.
hey there, i made some lighters to pass out at my next show and thought i'd share the template in case anyone else wanted to do the same...to pass out or just to have an awesome lighter for themselves anyhow, they're very easy to make and inexpensive (just $2.50/dozen at dollar general cheap-o lighters and a single sheet of self-adhesive design paper). lighters last longer than flyers, plus they get passed around, stolen, etc. so the word gets out to more people
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
