I've got a small group of potential recruits where I'm at. My current soldiers and I do our best to spread the word.
I'm looking into getting a slot on an online radio show where I can easily sneak in a Protomen bump at least once during every show, whether it be an out-of-sequence song, or just a quick "check these guys out". For what it's worth, I'm gonna see about playing the self-titled in its entirety on my first night, rounding off with No Easy Way Out, but this would be a ways into the future... I'll keep interested parties updated...

Well, I'd probably flyer all of Seattle by myself...if they'd come. Hell, if they went to Oregon, I'd plaster fliers all over Seattle. Is flyer a verb? Is fliers the correct form of the word? I may never know.
Edit: oh, and Cyrillic writing is all gibberish to me, but there are a lot of people here who can at least read and basically understand Russian. If you'd like, I can probably ask a friend to write something else on the posters, instead?

I don't know if there is anyone here in the Texas Panhandle who's even heard of the Protomen. I'll poke around, see what I can do, and hopefully find some people. Maybe even recruit a few.
They almost assuredly haven't, and that's where you come in. I live in Austin, but I've got a slew of friends still living in Baytown.
When I first told them about a band that tells the story of Megaman through the allegory of rock and roll, their immediate response was "That sounds like it'd be crap". The way video-game-based-bands have... well, always kind of relied on the novelty of their subject material rather than their own musical prowess, I couldn't blame them.
So I hit them with Act II first, for chronology and to shock them with the widest range of aural variety and talent. Every single one of them, even my girls (who are unfamiliar of the concept of 8-bit altogether, much less Megaman) have the same response: "Wow, that gave me goosebumps."
Then you say "You're welcome", and bam, you've got a new recruit. I'm personally stunned at how easily the people I know have fallen in love with the music. Two years ago, I expected that this would be a passionate love affair between the Protomen and guys like me who love great music and love Megaman.
It's gotten much bigger, and growing every day. Not the band, or the popularity, but the idea and the belief in it.
