Shirts?

Why yes, we do have shirts. Right over here . They were designed by Mr. Nate Smith, and I think that they look pretty damn awesome. There are a variety of colors this time, whereas last time they were just white. So go, take a look, and order one.

I get that $22 isn’t a super low price, but keep in mind that all of the proceeds that we make off of this are funded directly back into the team. We intend on making some more awesome things for the team in the future, but we need money to make that happen. So come help out the team and rock the name at the same time!

So I’ve just realized how much fun it is to go through the Astronautalis tag simply to see the amazing things fan do.

I just watched a GREAT cover of Dimitri Mendeleev by imkindaoldfashioned

Please show off your talents, AstroFans! It can’t be easy rapping and playing guitar at the same time…

(Also: Hello new followers! I’m not Astronautalis, but a cohort in crime. If you have Twitter, I’m also over at @STastronautalis )

STREET TEAM! READ THIS NOW, PLEASE!

Driving home today, I began thinking about this upcoming astronautalis tour (of course… what else am I going to be thinking about?). We need to promote this anywhere and everywhere, but I really am going to need your help with this one.

Have you guys seen this poster yet?

I know that it’s for Flobots, but since it is technically their tour, I like it. Also, their name draws a crowd that might not know about astronautalis.

What do I want you guys to do? Simple. Print this off. Print off dozens (or more; I’m not judging). In that blank space below the picture, write down these items: Date of show, time, name of venue, cost of show, and if the show is all ages or not. If you’re having problems figuring it out, go to the venues website and to their calendar. Most of this information will be listed there. Also, if there is space, write in www.astronautalis.com just for good measure.

But there is more!

I want you to start networking in your local areas. You know that there are more of you in every city. Post on Twitter: “Hey, who out there is an astronautalis fan in -your city-?” and tag @STastronautalis. I’ll check my mentions, and RT each one. I’ll try to get astronautalis to do the same, since he still has so many more followers than the team page.

Network with the people that reply. Get together, get some coffee, get a beer, share a sandwich. Print and pass out fliers together and get yourself some new amazing friends. I’ve seen you guys do crazy amazing things. If you work together, the sky’s the limit, and that’s just if we don’t keep going.

The tour starts in Missoula, MT at The Top Hat on September 14. If you have anything you wish to add, or ask about, shoot me an email: teamastronautalis@gmail.com I am more than happy to start a conversation with you!

Follower count across the social media outlets:

Tumblr: 68

Twitter: 334

Email list: 35

I know that there are crossovers here and there, but the numbers are looking good. I want to bring up Twitter the most, but if you aren’t following us over here on Tumblr, and you have an account, I suggest doing so. Since I don’t have to worry about character restrictions, big things are posted here.

Tell your friends, family, that stranger you see on the street from time to time but have never talked to (but you think s/he’s cute, so consider this an icebreaker) to listen to astronautalis, and to come and follow the team over here.

Giveaway at 500 Twitter followers! Even if you create a faceless account simply to follow the team, you’re a part of it! I might do a giveaway for Tumblr followers soon, since I know there are those that are against Twitter. Don’t want anyone to get left out!

Hello there!

So, as you all know, this team is near and dear to my heart. I very much want to put all of my passion behind this, and it’s going to happen more and more if this team grows, and more of you step up to help me out.

I want this team to do amazing things, because astronautalis deserves it, and I need you to help me with this.

Tell everyone and anyone you know to follow either here (where I try and post as much as possible, and I am going to work at it more) or over on Twitter at @STastronautalis. I know many people don’t have/don’t want Twitter, and that’s just fine. I try to post major things here, or I send out emails to the email street team (shoot me an email if you want to be added: teamastronautalis@gmail.com).

If I can grow the team, I can get more of y’all to back me when things happen. There are going to be giveaways at 500, and astronautalis is helping with the prize. I want to make more shirts, stickers, anything that can be used to get strangers interested in astronautalis and his music.

I’ve been a fan for a year now (give or take a couple of weeks), and he has introduced me to so many other musicians that I would have never known about before. I’d never heard of Doomtree (or any of the members), Ceschi, Busdriver, Bleubird, Dark Time Sunshine, and so on and so on. Rap wasn’t important to me; I overlooked it a lot. He showed me how amazing rap can be.

Let’s get him the recognition and fanbase he deserves.

:D

CONTEST! HEY HEY! LOOK HERE!

I know that this was up, but Jord and I have changed things up! We really want to see what you can do, so we’re giving you some more time. So, new rules (sort of) and a new end date!

DESIGN A SHIRT!

CONTEST TIME!

We have to limit the amount of colors/textures used, but throw at us whatever you come up with. If we need to fix it a bit to make it work, we will work with you to make that happen. We will both be looking at each design that comes in, carefully deciding what we want next to represent Team Astronautalis.

RULES:

1. Each entry must be emailed (attached picture or in the body of the email, whichever works) to teamastronautalis@gmail.com with the subject “Team Astronautalis Contest!” Put your name in the email, please, just so we can keep up.

2. Can’t decide on one entry? Don’t worry about it! Design as many as you want, and send them in. We’ve decided we want to see anything and everything, so now there aren’t any limitations on quantity.

3. Not Photoshop savvy? Describe your vision to us, in as much detail as possible. We’ll see if we can manage to make it up on our own.

4. Try to stay limited on how much detail you put in to it. Think of what you see as shirt designs; not many are over the top. “Team Astronautalis” has to be in the shirt somewhere, since these are team shirts!

5. All entries must be in by May 31, 11:59 pm PST!

6. Tell us what color shirt you imagine it being on, or make the background of your submitted image that color.

7. Be creative! We want to see what awesome things you all can come up with. Put a little color in it, if you want. Show us how amazing you all are!

If we pick your shirt as the winner, you will not only get it up on the street team store for sale with your name attached, but we will also send you a free shirt with your design! Everyone will know it was your design, and they will be representing the team with your help!

Trouble Hunters!

First: Hello to all of the new followers. There are so many of you.

Second: Remember this shirt?

Some of you loved it, some of you thought it was great but a tad simple, some of you bought it, and so on.

Well, Jord and myself have decided that we want to create a new shirt. Well, we don’t want to. We want you, the FANS!, to design one.

CONTEST TIME!

One entry a person. We have to limit the amount of colors/textures used, but throw at us whatever you come up with. We will both be looking at each design that comes in, carefully deciding what we want next to represent Team Astronautalis.

RULES:

1. One entry per person. Each entry must be emailed (attached picture or in the body of the email, whichever works) to teamastronautalis@gmail.com with the subject “Team Astronautalis Contest!” Put your name in the email, please. Just so we can keep track.

2. Try to stay limited on how much detail you put in to it. Think of what you see as shirt designs; not many are over the top.
