That reminds me, last year before the concert someone was passing out copies of David Cook's Analog Heart for free. (I got one. hehe, the CD cover was pink.) It was just a CD in a cover case with 'Analog Heart' written sharpie over the CD.

What we could do is copy a few of our very favorite Matt songs onto a CD, including his pre idol stuff. I was so totally copied "One Man Audience" on it. (:

I'm not sure about the cost. There are cheap ways of doing this. You can get CDs for the bulk real cheap. We [probably] have all of Matt's songs.

I thought about putting a couple of his pre-idol songs like Too Many Nights and So You but I think I'd want to ask him first because those songs are still on itunes whereas the idol stuff will not be. I would hate to take potential money away from him if he didn't want us too you know?

If it would be cheaper to forgo the inserts we could do that but I thought it would be good to have some websites available so people could find info on him easily. But if it costs too much we could skip that because the music is the most important. Or we could keep the front insert and forgo the back with the song names listed.

I think Too many nights would be good, but you're right about it taking money away from him. Might want to stick to the AI songs. "Who's loving you" would be another good one!
I'll help do what I can.

I would love to do this! But with security and everything, is this sort of thing frowned upon? When is the best time to pass them out? I just wouldn't want to get in any trouble...

Well I only went to the season 4 tour and Constantine fans (not me) were handing out stuff left and right. I think the best time is right before the show. Get to the venue a little early and hand them out to people going into the show.. There was not security outside the venues but there might be after the show...lol that season I went to four shows.

Well, what I meant about putting a couple of his pre idol songs on it is whoever is listening to it and if they like it they will want to try and find more before music of Matt's before Idol. Ya know? (: Just a thought. I would never buy the whole album and just give it away.

Janizzle, last year before the concert early by the buses at, like, 1pm-ish is when some girls passed out copies of Analog Heart to people. (The whole album, I was actually kind of shocked that they were passing out the whole album for free, though) That's probably the time when it would be alright. I know of other street teams doing similar stuff before the show early and it being alright. Unless you've heard something that I haven't. If so, please share. :]

How hard is it to Street Team when you're a team of 1? Well, my sister and I are going but I doubt she'd want to actually help me hand out CD's... We are going to the Philly show, and it seems like with all the excitement going on I may have to take a day off of work!

LOL I don't think it matters if there is one person or 10. Anything will help. I was going to suggest that people try and hook up with other Matt fans who are going to their show but if they can't one person doing it is better than none.

Here's a thought--why not have 30 second previews of a couple of Matt's pre-Idol songs? Then you can have something like "If you want to hear more, check him out at Itunes!"

I'm w/ Jenna on this. I think that if ur thinking about putting his pre-idol music on the cd, that you try to send him a message on myspace or FB asking him about what he thinks & for his permission. I have had luck w/ getting a response from him before. Maybe he'll respond if it's about something very important like this.

Be sure to make the title of your message unique enough to catch his eye, cause I'm sure he gets hundreds of messages a day.

If he doesn't respond, I'd just leave it alone.

I've never done it and as much as I am talking about I have to admit I'm a little nervous about it...LOL!

For Pete's sake I'm a 34 year old women with a son and a career and this is all making me feel like I'm a 13 year old fan girl.
