Sun, 1 Jun 2003 16:37:15 -0400 Coming June 7th from Pittsburgh Pa, garage-punk legends: The Cynics Pats Fest II details will be announced soon. After one of the largest non-event crowds in recent Pat's history last = friday(23) night featuring; Stinking Lizaveta, Lives Of The Saints, The = New Lou Reeds and Sexual Tension. Pat's In The Flats has planned a very = event filled summer. Punk-Garage legends The Cynics whom are coming off a sold-out European = tour will be featured in a special outdoor show at 9pm this Saturday, = June seventh. The Pat's-Fest II plans are nearly completed and the first week of = August looks like a sure thing. Stay tuned for the vast list of bands = that will be participating.` This Friday the sixth will have Selencio and The New Lou Reeds are back = for another entertaining evening, be there. June 1st was the unveiling of the video-page at patsintheflats.com. The = page will feature small videos of bands that have performed recently. A = "Lives Of The Saints" video is now available and "The New Lou Reeds" and = "Stinking Lizaveta" will be uploaded soon. To accommodate most visitors (68% have dial-up connections) the videos = have been highly compressed. The good news is that a 56k connection can = stream video within seconds, the trade off is quality. If you have a = quality vs file size opinion. feel free to reply with your suggestion or = comments. The original file has a very satisfactory picture but is = obviously to huge to publish but if interest is large, I may go through = the hassle of dubbing hi-fi tape or burning video-cds. Right now they = are available only to performers. If you have a video available of a performance at Pat's, send the link = and details to lou @ patsintheflats.com. I will make sure to post it on = the video-page. Lastly, I would like to urge the mailing list not to reply to spam. It = is apparent the a web-bot got hold of the address which is posted and = has sent a couple spam emails. I am currently working on a solution to = limit that mess. Thanks, lm

>hey lou ---> i'm gonna try to hit this gig fer sure. should be a = rocker!! yah craig, I'm excited to see them also, their last album was one of = cynics best. hopefully the weather will be decent. >and nice job on the streaming video for the pats site. very hip and = progressive!!!! thank you. I take back what I said about you. i've been experimenting on different compressions and trying to improve = the audio though doing so greatly increases the file size. i believe the last one was the best mix of compression/quality. lou ps: nick wrote (in a reply) DON'T HIT THE REPLY BUTTON ON A MAILING = LIST! actually I believe it is perfectly fine to reply to a message from a = mailing list as long as it has something related to said message. the = problem I have is when there are replies to a spam message in a mailing = list. remember if you want limited email you can go to = http://patsintheflats.com/mailman/listinfo/patsintheflats_patsintheflats.= com and change your preferences to bundle all mailing list messages into = one email once a day, week, etc. with that said this mailing list been averaging less than three messages = per week since its inception.
