Call Out to Artists & Musicians

For the first in a series of fundraisers before the Seattle Bicycle Music Festival, I’m planning an Alley Cat race: Rawk&Roll!


We need you!!!! Wanna help us rock out after the alley cat? Are you interested in playing any of the other fundraiser dates? Want to come to the big festival at the end of summer? Are you a bad-ass dj that can mix it up & make people shake their booties on the dance floor? Lemme know! Seeking musicians of all genres.  Send me a link to your music page (or contact me if you want to send a demo CD via snail-mail).

Graphic Artists!

I need help designing bad-ass fliers for the race, and spoke cards, stickers, maybe even a silk-screen for shirts and patches. If you can design something, let me know!

Here’s the specifics of what I’m looking for:

The festival kick-off and first fund-raising event is an alley cat race & music after-party. I’d like to get something done for that ASAP so we can start posting on various websites, blogs, forums, etc. about the event.

Race details for fliers:

  • Rawk&Roll! alley cat
  • Saturday, June 26
  • 2pm sign-up, 3pm depart
  • Meet @ Mobius (waiting for confirmation, so this is TBD)
  • $5 race entry
  • optional: ($8 suggested donation for after-party entry for non-racers; free for racers… still determining after-party venue & bands)
  • -3 minutes off final time for wearing a band t-shirt, -5 minutes final time for racing in full Rock & Roll costume!
  • WordPress address &
  • BEER!
  • MUSIC!

The flier should scream “Rawk&Roll!!!” somehow. It should ideally be able to look good on both 8.5″x11″ paper AND 4″x6″ to be handed out & left in shops around town. Try to use something that would look good in black & white to keep down printing costs.

Spoke cards: include basic info (race name, date, Seattle) but these should be something you totally want on your bike!

Posters: I really like this image, but I am waiting to get permission from the good people at Bicycle Music Festival to use it. I’d like to see something with “Seattle Bicycle Music Festival 2010″, the dates (June 26 Rawk&Roll alley cat race, July 17 fund-raiser concert, Aug 14 fund-raiser concert, Sept 18 Seattle Bicycle Music Festival main event), and contact info (WordPress address & 8.5″x11”. Also, something that could easily be converted to b&w for cheaper printing would be great. We can prolly print some full-color posters, but damn, those things are expensive!

Stickers: Similar design to the posters, but with only contact info included, and smaller.

T-shirts / patches / whatevs: Just “Seattle Bicycle Music Festival 2010” and a super cool design. It can be similar to the posters & stickers or something totally different & exciting.

Have fun!!!

  1. Dude, someone totally sniped me on Craigslist. They flagged the ad I put out for removal! Whatever!
    Spread the word if you know someone who’s an awesome graphic artist. Otherwise, I’m gonna get to work on this myself, using good ol’ pen & paper.
