I'm trying an experiment in Email Marketing

Tom here, but of a mass-mail so bear with me... I've just subscribed you to the Auckland Music Update mail list (please feel free to unsubscribe). I'm trying a new technique of building up my email list my just throwing some subscribers (you) onto the list without getting their opt-in, maybe that's bad, but I'm starting really small first up, basically your on a list of people who performed at the Christchurch Quake Benefit gig at Galatos back in April that Flex emailed in April, what a mean gig). Anyhow, to grab a record of your opt-in, please click the nice blue button below:
