And Lastly....

DO NOT MAKE ME DIG FOR THE DATE, TIME, & LOCATION OF YOUR PERFORMANCE.

Here's the information block I want to see (FOR EXAMPLE) in every press release or email I receive:

Performers: Kansas City G&S Players
Works:         The Gondoliers
Day/Date:   Monday, April 14, 2014
Time:          7:30 PM
Location:     Elmer Gantry High School
                    1912 Anderson Way
                    Kansas City, MO

I WANT TO SEE THIS AT FIRST GLANCE. NOT BURIED AT THE END OF A SENTENCE IN RUNNING TEXT.

AND DON'T SEND ME THIS STUFF ONE WEEK BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE.

IS ALL OF THIS SO HARD? YOU ARE BEING PAID TO PROVIDE THE ABOVE INFORMATION TO PEOPLE LIKE ME ON A TIMELY BASIS.

Sorry for shouting. No, actually, I'm not sorry at all.

Updated, March 22: Added a line for works to be performed. I like to know that, too.

My most favorite piece of this is PR that offers zero indication of what city the event will be held in. It's all just "come to our show!! it's at that hot new club Bathtub on 13th street!!! OMG!"

I have seen a few of those! Usually when I dig far enough, the concert is in Brooklyn, NY.
