Hey guys!

Do you want to be part of something special? Yes? Then continue reading...

Esther (sickgirlesther) and I are going to the show in Cologne, Germany on the 19th of April and we want to do something special. Hence, we were thinking of doing a collection of thank you letters from fans all over the world and giving it to Brian Fallon after the show. If you want to be part of it, then join. We are happy to add as many letters as we can into a notebook ( we will let you know about the size of the pages Smile )

Due to time, spacial and financial issues, some instructions and guidelines are necessary:
Please read carefully before sending your letters  Smile

1. You can send your letter per post/mail or email/private message
1.1 POST: if you want to send it per post/mail, you have the possibility to choose your own paper and you can add pictures and drawings

1.2 EMAIL: if you want to send it per email, you do NOT have the possibilities mentioned in 1.1 due to complications of the printing process and ink
1.2.1. Please, send it as a PDF file!


2. Write a brief anecdote which can be your best memory, first time you heard The Gaslight Anthem, you know you're a Brian Fallon/Gaslight fan when..., what you always wanted to tell them/Brian, why they/he are/is so important to you, etc...

3. NOT too LONG: please take care to not exaggerate the length of your letter due to spacial restrictions.

4. Drawings/Pictures: you can add a picture or a drawing but this option is only available if you send your letter per POST/MAIL

5. Your NAME: you can sign, and also add your age and country if you want to.
If you do not add your name you don't have to.

DEADLINE: 10th of March 2016

Important information:

if you send your letter per post/mail, be aware that it can get lost on the way (we cannot take responsibility for it)
we hope Brian will come out after the show so that we can give it to him personally
we cannot accept letters which has passed the deadline...if you send your letter per post/mail be aware of shipping time and that it arrive before the deadline
please contact Esther (sickgirlesther) or me per PM for the address or Email


If you have questions, feel free to ask!
We are looking forward to your participation!
Thank you,

Anya and Esther

Just thought I'd give this thread a bump to remind everyone! I'll try to get mine mailed by the end of the week since air mail may take awhile.

Finished mine finally! It's only eight sentences but it seems pretty good to me. I fit it onto one side of a 6 x 9 sheet of notebook paper.

If anyone's still on the fence about participating, you don't have to write a ridiculously heartfelt piece of perfect literature. You could just put down a few sentences about:
-a great concert memory
-someone you bonded over the music with
-a song you really like for some special reason
-some way the music helped you in your life
-how much fun you have playing Gaslight songs on your guitar or singing along to them in the car
-a way the music inspired you artistically
-a general thank you for how happy you are to have the music in your life

Just thought I'd throw out a few ideas to get people thinking. It would be great to have more than just a handful participants! Smile
