Mothballoween Giveaway Contest!

 

As I mentioned in the most recent podcast episode, I’m holding a contest for all of our listeners. Three lucky participants will be getting Mothball Prophecies merchandise. I have t-shirts, hoodies, buttons, stickers – all sorts of stuff!

The rules are simple:

1. You submit a weird, creepy, or paranormal story to me at mothball@crescentcitymedia.com. The story can be an original creation, a tale you heard growing up, or a personal experience (or a “friend’s” experience, I won’t judge). And yes, you retain all rights to your submissions. Entries must be received by October 20th. 
2. I will read the entries during a special October 31st episode of The Mothball Prophecies, complete with sound effects and everything!
3. Participants will be entered into a random name picking app to choose three winners, which will be announced on November 1st.

It’s that simple.

We may not be able to go out trick or treating, but we can experience spooky stories right here!

The Treat: Having your story read for our entire audience and getting a chance to win a prize!

The Trick: There really isn’t one. I mean, I could do something like read an Ibsen play or a Restoration Comedy aloud for five hours, but that’s not the kind of torture anyone enjoys.

So have fun and send your entries to:

Escape from the Secret Lab: A Mad Musical Gameshow Where YOU Decide the Outcome!

Do you want a livestream that is more than just passive viewing? Do you want to take part in a mad gameshow where you can watch amazing bands, win prizes, and determine the outcome of the show?

Enter: Escape from the Secret Lab, from the mad scientists at the Consortium of Genius (C.O.G).

Escape from the Secret Lab streams every Friday night at 8 pm Central and provides a platform to showcase a wide range of artists spanning metal, soul, punk, country, and more. Every week, the Mad Scientist in Chief, Dr. Milo T. Pinkerton III, captures a band and forces them to play music in order to win their freedom!

A Gameshow Where You Can Win Prizes and Determine the Fate of the Band

Throughout the show, both the captured band and the Secret Lab are awarded points based on donations from the audience. If you want to see the band escape and regain their freedom, you can donate to them. If, however, you want to see the performers meet an untimely (but creative) demise, you can send your donation to the Secret Lab.

The audience is encouraged to donate for a chance to win great Science-Approved™ prizes! Audience participation can get heated, but a good deal of the enjoyment comes from knowing that those donations are going to help out musicians who may have lost tours and gigs at venues during the pandemic.

It’s All Fun and Games Until… (actually, it’s all fun and games)

While live performances, audience participation, and prizes are enough to hook most people, that’s just a portion of the overstuffed bag of tricks Escape from the Secret Lab has in store! You will also experience music videos from the Consortium of Genius, C.O.G.-created propaganda ads promoting Mad Science™ and Evil Genius™, as well as a chance to watch bands compete in the Arcade Room of Digital Doom – where musicians face-off against Dr. Pinkerton himself by playing classic video games for bonus points.

You can find Escape from the Secret Lab on Facebook, YouTube, and wherever else Mad Science™ and mayhem reign!

Tune in this Friday at 8 pm Central to watch Escape from the Secret Lab. It will quickly become your new favorite livestream!

Attention New Orleans Musicians, Artists, and Culture-Bearers!

Crescent City Media wants to promote New Orleans musicians, artists, and culture-bearers for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you want to reach a larger audience, Crescent City Media would like to help by promoting you.

We’re setting aside a small budget every week to run ads for musicians and artists to reach larger audiences whether it’s for recognition or revenue.

For Musicians:

Send us a message with a link to your event and the type of audience you want to reach, and we’ll go over the details from there. We also want to run ads to get people to buy your music.

For Artists:

If you have art, jewelry, sculpture, or anything else you are trying to sell, send us a message, and we’ll work with you to create a campaign that will reach your audience.

How it works:

All you have to do is send us a message and tell us what you want to achieve. We’ll start a conversation and get your approval at every step of the way.

The cost:

Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Naught.

No middle-person.
No “Brought to you by…”
No fees, commissions, or other b.s. that keeps people from being recognized and get the full value of their art.

We’re in a pandemic right now, which means musicians and artists have been forced to cancel events or had gigs canceled when various venues went into suspended animation. So for as long as we’re on lockdown and tourism isn’t at its peak, we’re going to keep doing everything in our abilities to help the creative community of New Orleans.

As stated above, we have a small weekly budget to promote local musicians and artists. Just because tourism and events have been called off doesn’t mean the culture of New Orleans should go dormant, and it certainly should not mean that the amazing talent in this city should be kept from the world!

We want to help the musicians, artists, and culture of New Orleans thrive!

Message us on Facebook, or you can send an email to info@crescentcitymedia.com to get started.
