We're not a bunch of assholes, as some people seem to think;
we're only assholes when you're drunk and give us shit.

Not only is Empress there to listen to good music,
Empress Ballroom is always looking for bands to book. Whether you're a
national, local or whatever band, chances are Empress is will book you.

Keep in mind, this is for the site - not for Empress, smart ass.

1. This isn't a rule, but it's an idea starter. Here are some acceptable post ideas:
- upcoming shows at Empress; promote your band!
- show reviews
- pictures
- questions, comments about Empress
- Ballroom stories; there's always something going on

2. Edit 04/15/05: Fuck introductory posts. It's a good idea to get the community moving and all, but I don't want it to be mandatory.

3. All pictures go under an LJ CUT, please. If you don't know how to do one, ask.

4. This is one community where band promos are good, but if your community sucks, don't bother to promote it. Or if it's a rating community; they're obnoxious.

5. Being polite gets you far in my book. Starting LJ drama will get your ass kicked by myself personally. Don't harrass people for their opinions, because I'm sure you've got a couple crappy opinions too.

6. 04/15/05: I think that a repeat of #5 deserves it's own spot, with a more forward/blunt way of stating it -- this community will have none of that LJ-Drama crap, ya dig?
