Twang Bands/Alt.Country Resources and Venues in Germany

In my ongoing and increasingly-desperate efforts to get more twang-related bands to PLEASE tour Europe (because I've lived in Germany since February 2001 and I'm going out of my mind from twang-deprivation), I offer these resources to help with the booking/tour planning of such bands. If you have a twang/alt.country/whatever band and are playing in Germany, please contact me!
