Yeah, I may run by the office store on my way home from school today...

I agree with fourstrings, I've found some ridiculously priced stuff on cafe press...

Also look into playing new bars/venues in your city which have a regular crowd show up on a certain night (say every Saturday night).
We always post lots of bulletins from like a week away, right up until the day of the show..
Thats a good idea about a gig swap, I'll talk to some of my friends in other bands..
And that's where we try to book, busy places, which sometimes works out well..
I like my toms like I like my women, loose and fat.
