Flog-O-Rama!

Great news — we now (pardon the pun) have a sponsor, namely our trusted community newspaper, The Surrey Now. Thanks to Now publisher Marlyn Graziano, we are now able to advertise our CD Release Party in the Now Newspaper. Now of course, I do work as a graphic designer at the Now, so I imagine I had a bit pull there. What I do for a living can be seen HERE. So, as far as seeing my name in the paper, the ad at the end of this post will run in the Now at least once a week.

Now, then… for those of you who haven’t been paying much attention to this blog, this is our opportunity to reiterate:

Sparkling Apple will be releasing our brand new CD “Hard Core Apple” this summer, and to celebrate, we will be holding a gala CD release party on July 22nd at 2pm in Pancho’s Cabaret in Surrey. “A CD?” you say, “Aren’t CDs obsolete now that you can download tunes on the Internet”. Our response is a simple “Hell, yeah!” We never got to release a CD before, so why should their disappearance from the marketplace spoil our fun and influence our decision?” Judging from the sales of our 45s on eBay , these silver platters ought to become collectors’ items in no time anyway — we will naturally be selling these on our website as well as at the merchandise table at our upcoming appearances.  However, in order to get one of these puppies early without the hassle of shipping costs and postal delays, we urge you to come to our CD Release Party in  Beautiful Downtown Whalley.  For the insignificant cost of a ten-dollar ticket, you will not only receive entry to the party, but a shiny new Sparkling Apple CD as part of the bargain! In addition, the fabled Sparkling Apple will stumble to the stage and perform an ancient form of music not heard in these parts for many years — rock and roll! Plus, we will be offering free food as well as all the sights, sounds, & smells of the Whalley Experience.  The bar is officially open, and will remain so until Art’s supply of Budweiser is depleted.

So where do you get tickets? I’m glad you asked that — tickets are available on our Facebook event page, right here on the Official Sparkling Apple Blog (leave a comment on here and we’ll get back to you ASAP), or from Captain Maniac himself at captainmaniac@gmail.com. At this point, tickets are threatening to be sold out soon, so get yours while they’re still available. Hey, you could grab a pantload of tickets cheap and then be a scalper in the Flamingo parking lot, flogging these for 50 bucks a pop! Who says there are no jobs left in today’s fragile economy? (Jeez, I should get a Canada Council grant just for coming up with that suggestion.)

OK, we’re done here. Have a good day, and keep on rockin’,
Captain Maniac
