this timeline makes me laugh. it should read:
june ?? gothamist needs one more band for movable hype lineup, begs cyhsy's manager to let them play the show. promises him that the delancey won't be mad, even if it's just a few days after their show there.
june 15 gothamist interview gets published and really shouldn't be cited as part of their success on the net. at the movable hype show i actually apologized to alec for the dumb questions i asked (which i've been meaning to change). we thought of more stupid questions that could be asked in the future.
june 20 gothamist asks blogger friends to post about movable hype show. scott of stereogum does.
june 20 gothamist learns that david bowie is on the list for their movable hype show. he wants to see cyhsy. gothamist accidentally lets the news slip to half of the band before their set (BECAUSE GOTHAMIST THOUGHT THEY KNEW ALREADY) and the band is now v.v. nervous.
and of course, before all of that - a good portion of these 7,158 blog posts about the band took place.
