Thanks to Vanessa aka Plasmo at TS they have now added Beat.Aid to their front page Hype section.

http://www.thescene.com.au/hype/2005_1_7_460.html

It's also news on RA today.

Has anyone sent the info to SaraBee for Tranzfusion? There is nothing up in their news or events section yet.

There's no listing of beat.aid up on here yet. Just checked and wondered if anyone ended up emailing The Age? If not, happy to do so. :)

If anyone has any contacts anywhere, they should just send the press release anyway.

just in case they didn't receive it. and it can't hurt for them to receive it more than once.

quite shitty about it actually...no mention of who the money's going to, dj's etc. sent them the press release...looks like they had a jolly old time editting the main bits of info from it.

oh well...bit of exposure i guess.

not shitty as such shepherd...just more disappointed in that the piece for club evolution has a lot more detail. just wouldhave thought the same would apply.

but like i did say in my earlier post...it's all about exposure.

evolution may be advertising generally or may have advertised in the past.

remember tho - an event like that one isn't going to get any specialist press like itm/RRR etc etc

community rally behind something."
