Facebook.com… It’s a name that millions of people have heard of, even if they don’t use it. Many people would also love to have that kind of name recognition. In the meantime, there’s a really easy and effective way to build your “brand” from within Facebook, and I see it getting missed ALL the time…. your Facebook web address!
There are a number of local places (both physical and online) where bands and musicians can post fliers for free! Here is a handy reference list of places to post…

Whatever-BEER IS GOOD!
That’s what the metal band Psychostick thinks. So much so that they wrote a song about their love and admiration for it. The song, titled simply “BEER!” (also affectionately called “The Beer Song”) has become an anthem of sorts for all those beer drinkers in the world. Don’t believe so? The video has been viewed by more than 5.8 million people on YouTube, making it a viral hit. The song has also, and still is, played on satellite and FM radio stations throughout the United States. Tonight-Psychostick will stopping in Dayton in support of their new album, IV: Revenge of The Vengeance at Oddbody’s
Since their inception in Arizona back in 2000, Psychostick has been bringing their brand of humor, hilarious lyrics like bands The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic. The band’s music also features heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance like what you would see with bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed. Their first album, We Couldn’t Think of a Title was released in 2003. The album, which includes the hit “BEER”, caught the eye of Rock Ridge Records. The record company liked what they heard, and signed Psychostick.
One of the main statements that the band stands behind is the independence of their work with releasing their music. The website, artwork, and general marketing is done by their singer Rob Kersey. Psychostick records are self-produced, engineered, and mixed by their guitarist Joshua Key.
Recently, the band ran a successful Indiegogo campaign to help them build a studio in their residence in Chicago, along with helping them finish with the recording of their album IV: Revenge of The Vengeance. “Our goal is to bring out more music and videos,” Kersey explained during a recent phone conversation. “We have always wanted to release music quickly, and now we can be able to.”
Psychostick will be bringing specific outfits (examples from previous shows include a spiky hat wore by Kersey, a hachimaki for guitarist Key, and large moose antlers for bassist Matty J) and uses goofy prop comedy with objects like rubber chickens, stuffed animals or their instruments. Their stage presence and shows undoubtedly bring those who are on the fence with their spin of heavy metal, and immediately come to embrace them.
Psychostick will be sharing the stage tonight at Oddbody’s with (hed)P.E., Legbone, and Menace 2 Sobriety. Showtime is 8pm. 18 and up show.
