Here is a new job proposition, courtesy of craigslist, for those shy, shrinking violet club promoters in NYC: reality show star. It's such a perfect match of sickening sycophancy, one marvels at the fact that it possibly took this long to come about.
The listing, spotted by Down By The Hipster, reads:
This reality show is highlighting New York City nightclubs. We want to get close and personal with major club promoters. Promoters whose one and only job is making sure the nightlife in this city is still thriving despite the current financial climate. We would like to dive deep in their world by observing their business as well as intimate and personal relationships. We're looking for promoters who host parties in Manhattan on a weekly basis, All music genres are encouraged. Please note this will be a week long commitment, we will follow you through your daily lives.
There's the rub. A week long commitment from a club promoter is really pushing it.
