Other great ways to spread the 54 seconds word
Wear the T-Shirt! When people ask about the shirt, go into a sell job: "54 Seconds are my favourite band. Their website is 54seconds.com. If you're in Austin, Texas, go see them! You won't be disappointed!
Play the albums for your visitors. Don't tell them you are doing it, just do it. If they like them go into a big sell...hehe... be crafty!
If you have extra surfing time on your hands, visit radio stations and request the band's songs!
