'Psy' is not pronounced like an 's'. It sounds like your music is made in the vicinity of Psy.

I'm not sure cuz you were so subtle but... you have lots of different influences, right?

Ah yes, veteran bands like Alt-J, formed in the distant and hazy past of 2007.

While typing this, how was he not like: "Man, I need to change my image."

Breakfast would be a lot more fun if this was describing my Alpha-Bits.

Oh, Nonagenarian train-folk music! Why didn't you say so? Here's a weekly Saturday night headlining spot, Caboose Joe!

So I guess you sent this email with a quill pen, Lord Fancypants?

While it feels like there's a smidgen of hyperbole here, I do have to thank them for teaching me the word 'yawp.'

Are you suggesting ODB lied when he said Wu Tang is for the children?

I think you meant to email that other booker who owns the time machine set to 20 years ago.

We totally premiered this album from Renny Wilson earlier this month. To be fair, this email is pretty much describing his sound to a T.

That stew sounds both painful to chew on and quite unsanitary, to be honest.

The Tinder Boyz. 3km away. 5'8", 6'3", 6'0", 5'3". Not looking for random hookups - unless your name is Sub Pop.

Fuck that, man - I would absolutely book this band.
If you’ve ever been in a fledgling band, you know half the battle is just getting your foot in the door. To do that, you’ve got to reach out to press, promoters, and venues that don’t know you from Adam.
Your best bet, of course, is having a solid demo that shows off your sweet tunes. And since it never hurts to stand out from the crowd, you usually try to have a unique press kit of some sort or the other – even if it’s just a bio talking about how you “came from the bottom and now you hurr.”
Slight problem though: As any booker can tell you, bands are often terrible at knowing what would actually work in their favour. Someone on the receiving end has been collecting his favourite misguided missives from artists and has decided to graciously share them with the world on the tumblr site Why I Deleted Your Band’s Promo Email. Get ready to cringe.
