Bill Campana Live at The Mesa Arts center
« on: August 22, 2008, 09:04:45 PM »
Good Evening,

Today, tickets for Poet Bill Campana's poetry show go on sale at The Mesa Arts Center. I'd like to ask for your help in creatinga one-day sellout of this show. There are 99 seats, so all it takes are 99 people to order 1 ticket each, or 49 people to order two.

Bill Campana is revered Nationwide for his poetry, professional slam poets across the nation cite Bill's work and influence. We here in the Valley are fortunate enough to have him live here, write here, and express here.

So, I am asking you today, to go online or pick up the phone and order one or more tickets to Bill's show, which will be September 27th, 2008 at 8PM at The Mesa Arts Center. Buy a ticket for yourself or as a gift for someone you know likes poetry. Tickets are only $12 each.

The Mesa Arts Center Website is:
https://boxoffice.mesaartscenter.com/online/defaultlist.asp?calDaySearch=2008-9-27
The Box Office Phone Number is: 480.644.6500
The Address is 1 E MainSt, Mesa, AZ, 85211

If you buy more than one ticket, let me know after you buy them how many you purchased. The person that buys the most tickets on Friday the 22nd, and let's me know by email, text, or in the Anthology Forums, will receive a free, Autographed Copy of Bill's 3 CD set, The Hit List, awarded on the night of the show. Your purchase must be verifiable, be made on Friday the 22nd, and I must be notified on Friday to qualify. If there is a tie, we will do a drawing for the winner on the night of the show. to email me, send me a message to Bob@anthology.org, text me (or call and leave a message, whichever) at 602.478.9508, or post to
http://www.anthology.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=125#125

Include your name, number of tickets you bought, how you bought them (web/email/in person/phone). I'll update the forum link above with the current highest number through the day.

Have a great day, and thank you for helping us to support the Literary arts in the Valley.

Bill is one of the few features I would fly into my hometown to feature from out of my pocket, he is so representative of what a great feature should do.  He is a poet's poet, he is old school without the rust, and he is absolutely hilarious, prolific and unique.  I booked him in a couple of weeks here in Columbus and I can't wait until he shows up.  And yes, I put money down on a plane ticket to make it happen.  Money, meet mouth. 


(Also, his CD set (3 discs!) is practically a classroom on how to work it.)

Scott, I'm totally blurbing this...

And here's an image...

Oh, BTW, where can you get Bill's 3-cd set? Right in the poetryslam.com store.

http://www.poetryslam.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=421&category_id=7&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=29

And another BTW, those of you who are hot on Bill's work: Go into the store and write a blurb or a review of his CD. That can't hurt either.
