JASON TRAEGER EAST COAST CRUSADE FALL 1997 PROMO SHEET
Who-ho-ho-hoa there! Hyperbole much? Could it be someone was a little nervous about his upcoming tour perhaps? Jeez!
If I can’t be totally sure whether or not this copy is over-the-top silliness or megalomaniacal bombast what were the poor promoters to make of it? Back then I was in the grip of a tortured all-or-nothing approach to life and art that had me swinging like a pendulum between depths of toxic self-contempt and flights of dizzyingly high self opinion. It was not especially productive or very much fun to live that way.
Since then I’ve managed to get a little bit more of a grip on reality…juuust a little.
That cool photo of me playing live on the flyer was taken by the great artist, photographer, and LA/DC punk Cynthia Connolly.
Flyer by…uh…me?
