Subject: Dickhouse Job Opening -- 2nd Assistant
We're looking for a second assistant. Obviously. Please pass along if you know anyone who's looking. High five!
Dickhouse Productions seeks a full time second assistant in Los Angeles. Candidates must be highly motivated, organized, and able to multi-task. Phone skills, grace under pressure, and access to a car are also a must. The office is fun and a little wacky, so thin skins should not apply. Second Assistant duties include, but are not limited to, answering phones, office managerial and maintenance tasks, research, running office (and some personal) errands, and the opportunity to read/write coverage for feature and tv projects in development. Agency experience and reading experience are a big plus, but not required.

You know the drill - leave me a comment or email me if you have any interest!
Hi, I'm helping find a guitarist or two for a showcase and
press event at Christie's auction house, October 3rd in New York.
Details are below. This would be non-compensation, other than expenses
for the day (transportation + food) but the event will likely garner
major music press (AP/Getty/Reuters, CNN, and local broadcasting
stations). Any ideas or suggestions from label folks or publicists
would be seriously considered and appreciated! The opportunity for
these musicisians to noodle away on some crazy rare (and expensive)
guitars could be a once in a lifetime kind of thing! And it would be
cool to showcase musicians with their own press appeal or some kind
personal relationship to C.F. Martin guitars -- but it's not necessary.
But these musicians should be serious guitarists -- and could be from
any genre -- rock, pop, classic, country/western etc. (although no
shredding, probably...but maybe!)
NP: The sweet sounds of the McCain/Palin gaffe machine saying stupid crap.
As we discussed earlier, I am looking for one or two (preferably two)
guitar musicians who can showcase their talent on Friday, October 3rd
at 10am. They will be playing C.F. Martin guitars that we will be offer
for auction on October 10th. Highlights of the sale will include an
assortment of limited edition proto-types, unique experimental
editions, inactive models and signature series featuring the D-45 Gene
Autry, the first signature series guitar made with a living artist
(estimate: $20,000-30,000). Among other signature series models,
Christie’s will be offering the 000-45 Jimmy Rodgers (estimate:
$12,000-18,000), D-28 Hank Williams (estimate: $10,000-15,000), 000-28
Eric Clapton (estimate: $1,500-2,500), SWC Classic Sting (estimate:
$1,500-2,500), 000-40Q2 Graham Nash (estimate: $1,600-2,800), and
OM-45B Roy Rogers (estimate: $15,000-25,000).
Although we can't compensate them monetarily, we can however provide a
car service/ breakfast. This would be great exposure for them because
our media events includes photo/camera/radio press (AP/Getty/Reuters,
CNN, and local broadcasting stations).
This auction is rare and important because it's in honor of the C.F.
Martin 175th anniversary, with all proceeds from the 49 guitars
benefiting The Martin Guitar Charitable Foundation*.
Musicians who can play from country and blues to rock and roll would be great!

Hey friends - weird query. Pass it on if you think you know someone.
ATP New York would love to have a young, saavy up-coming photographer be a
staff photographer for the event. Must know how to shoot live.
We would need these uploaded daily to a share site for other media to use IF
NEEDED with YOUR PHOTO CREDIT. ATP would also like to have usage of these
photos and ownership. Willing to discuss the deal.
There is no pay - but we can offer 2 full passes and a bed to the right
person or team. ! Really a good opportunity for someone young and up-coming
to get some credits, make some connections and have blast.

Oasis' Noel Gallagher Assaulted On Stage In Toronto
Tripwire reports: Maybe this guys was a mistaken, ugly Radiohead fan, but what's even more surprising than this on-stage attack of Noel is that brother Liam actually stuck up for him.
While performing "Morning Glory" - much to the delight of those in attendance at Toronto's 2008 Virgin Festival, a man suddenly appears on stage and, without warning, pushes an unsuspecting guitarist Noel Gallagher to the floor - seemingly also to the delight of those in attendance - causing a halt in the performance for several minutes. We don't want to ruin the surprise, but it happens right around the 1:30 mark of this clip. Once nerves and microphones were restored, the band resumed performing with "The Importance of Being Idle."
