Anyone who wants can contribute to his collection, and there is no restriction in quantity, so you can well take your pens out and draw him 1.000 giraffes for a start.

Thomas Dybdahl Newsletter June

Hey there,

seems things are getting more serious – here is another issue of our newsletter. Our today’s update includes three imperatives:

1. Vote for Thomas on BBC Radio 6Music
2. See Thomas and his band live on Friday in London
3. Read Thomas on the web
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

// 1. Vote for Thomas on BBC Radio 6Music
You finally have the chance to promote Thomas Dybdahl all on your own – no need for tricky managers, booking agencies and bribe money (which has never been used anyway), you do it all by yourself.
Visit and go to the bottom of the page to vote for Thomas Dybdahl’s ‘B A Part’ to be played on the radio! Alternatively, you can write an e-mail to with the subject ‘Thomas Dybdahl’.
If Thomas wins, and surely he will with your supportiveness, he will get one play in each mainstream daytime show next week on BBC Radio 6Music. One vote is possible per e-mail address. I will not say that you should use as many e-mail addresses as you can possibly find to enter the voting. I think that would be against the rules.

//2. See Thomas and his band live on Friday in London
If you’re anywhere near London this Friday (06/26/2009), and be it only the right hemisphere, get yourself out to come to the official opening of The Garage. Thomas Dybdahl and his full band will be playing there to support Peter, Bjorn and John. The concert starts at 7:30 pm. See for buying tickets.

//3. Read Thomas on the web
Thomas finally got more intimate with modern communication tools, to say the least. He has finally started writing a blog and posts messages to Twitter. Have a look of what he has to say. Be invited to join his facebook page/group as well!
Here a summary of where you can find the guy:
