After over a decade of hosting the mailing list at dancehallcrashers.com, a server transition has prompted me to move the remaining subscribers to a new google group at http://groups.google.com/group/dancehallcrashers. The list is unmoderated and open; please feel free to reconnect and share stories about DHC. Thanks!
I was going through some boxes this weekend and unearthed a fat box of Dance Hall Crashers paraphaenalia from the Blue Plate Special era. I certainly don’t need 29 identical posters so I’ve put a crazy auction up on Ebay that includes:
18″x18″ Blue Plate Special Poster
4-page Blue Plate Special “Menu” (flyer)
First 20 people to pay after the auction closes get a sticker
Free USPS priority mail shipping in the US with a poster tube
All that for $10, shipped!
Now here’s the bonus. Everyone who buys one (I have 29 of these “packages” for sale) will be entered into a drawing for an autographed copy of the Blue Plate Special CD, signed by all 5 members of the band! There is only one of these CDs, so no guarantees, but your odds are pretty good at 1 in 29.
Update Aug 10th – Bidding is complete and 29 lucky winners have finished the auction. I will be out of town this weekend and will let people finish sending in their paypals/etc. I will ship Monday or Tuesday and post a note here when I do.
Update Aug 20th – All of the goods have been shipped and I’m happy to announce the winner of the CD auction is Simon Rhodes from Australia! He’ll be receiving his autographed CD in the mail soon. Thanks again to everyone who bid and to Julie and James for their patience and understanding.
If you’ve been living under a rock, YouTube.com is basically a giant video sharing site. Like Napster was for music, but somehow more legit. People have posted all of the DHC videos like this one for “Lost Again” (Flash required):
