Bands, don’t be scammed by Pascal ALLIOT / Daydream Booking

2022 CW: I am hard on Pascal, and I now believe he has serious mental health problems. Eight years later, I would have used different words than what I wrote below… I am not discounting that he’s a scammer who has made life miserable for many artists and promoters. Just saying that he’s a sick man.

So, the story begins. In the dark & distant past of…. 2013!

This post is incredibly long, and incredibly stupid. I don’t expect many people to read the whole thing. But it is posted here so Google crawls it, to serve as a warning, so no bands or clubs get burned.

Short story. Black Tape For A Blue Girl was contacted by Pascal ALLIOT about booking shows in Europe. I was about to go on a cross-country move, so I told him and my USA booking agent that I could not reach any decisions for a while. We asked for some proof of who he was, he never sent any. He didn’t even have a website! But anyway, we let him do some research, because… why not? It would help us decide if he was real.

About two weeks later (when I get to Portland), he says he has a club in Berlin ready to pay (for a show 8 months away), and he keeps on asking if I would confirm. When I asked him more questions, his answers were vague and kind of douchebaggy. Then he had a total meltdown and started getting abusive via email. I told him I was not going to work with him. Then a few days later, the club contacts me because he took their money!

I have been contacting bands he claims to represent. Many of them are saying this guy is not their agent. And never was. This page is a warning. Pascal is a slippery fish. My advice is that you do not work with him. This page is long and boring. It is here to warn bands. Be very careful about this guy…

I find it suspicious that a guy asks for a bio and a “record” when the internet is full of bios and music he can stream for free. We communicate some more…

August 15, 2013 7:40:42 AM PDT Hello Sam

I thought about 2/3 weeks tour duration, April/May 2014. Maybe i could offered 1200 to 1500 euros net by gig+rider+meal+acomodations by date. Below, an exemple of tour i have recently built, to give you an idea.

Some questions:

– How many peoples on the road? – How many hotels rooms each evening? – could yo have a van with your own backlines? – Could you sent me by email: rider, backlines (if necesary), technical form? – Could you sent me by mail (Pascal Alliot, Ramon Llull, 28, 3-1, 08330 Premia De Mar, Spain), some records?

Thanks for all of this.

Best regards

Note that this is a different email address from the one he is using to communicate

From Black Tape’s US Agent, Athan Fri, 16 Aug 2013 10:21:53 -0700

Pascal, If you could CC Sam on all of these that would be helpful. I am curious if you have a website? Have you ever worked with other Gothic or Industrial bands before? If you would like to do some research and see what you can come up with both Sam and I are fine with that. Many Thanks, A (Black Tape’s US Agent)

There is no response to these questions about a website. We ask another time, no reply. I skip some “businesslike” emails here, because they are normal and don’t relate to the story…

From pascal Date: Thu, 29 Aug 2013 19:18:58 +0200

hello Athan. i have this offer: – The 16t of May, Berlin, (Club name removed): Conditions: 1450 euros net+backlines+rider+meal+acomodations. Let me known if ok. Definitly. Could you resent me all the rider+backlines? Thanks Best regards Pascal

All of this is happening while I am driving a 26′ truck across the country. I am emailing Athan from the road, that I cannot think about a show in May right now in August. And anyway, we need more info before we agree. Info about plane tickets, Visas, vehicle, etc. What if he only books one show? We cannot fly five people to Europe for one show, if nothing else comes through. Etc. etc.

From: Sam Rosenthal Date: September 2, 2013 1:55:06 AM PDT

Hi Pascal, I will have a reply to you in the next day or so. Starting to get to my emails. Sorry for the delay and bother, Sam

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 2, 2013 1:57:42 AM PDT Hi Sam, you are agree with the conditions? Best regards Pascal

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” Date: September 3, 2013 2:58:15 AM PDT

Hello Pascal,

I have some questions for you. Please be sure these are NOT rock-star-demanding, but very humble-and-concerned…

1) Who pays for the airfare for 5 people round trip to Europe?

2) How do we get from venue-to-venue? Coach? Van? A and I only speak english; we know nothing about the traffic rules in Europe. I cannot imagine driving around all these countries, not knowing the language, the roads, or the laws.

3) Who is paying for Visas for each country, so we are permitted to perform?

4) Are you providing a tour manager for us?

I am usually the “U.S. Tour Manager” for Blacktape in America. It is easy enough for us to play here, because we speak the same language and have the same laws. But throwing us into Europe sounds sort of daunting…

Thanks for your thoughts


From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 3, 2013 3:04:37 AM PDT

Hello Sam, below, the answer to your questions… Best regards Pascal

1) sent deposit for you (40/50% of the total fee) by bank transfert (i need your bank details for this)

2) i thought the best way is to rent a car or a van. Around 350/400 euros by week

3) You have to have them by yourself…The same for the work permit…

4) You know, a lot of peoples speak english to Europa. Soonest, i have booked 35 dates threw Europa for a japonese band, Acid Mothers Temple, so…

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 6, 2013 1:53:48 AM PDT

hello Sam, i have now some others interests, to book dates around Berlin one… Best regards Pascal

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” <></> Date: September 6, 2013 8:18:46 AM PDT


It is exciting you have so much interest.

However, I must say I am concerned about this idea that Athan and I have to drive around 30 countries, with languages we don’t understand. For me, that seems impossible. And that we have to get permits/Visas for 20+ different countries. My feeling is we limit this tour to 10 dates, in Germany – Switzerland – Italy. I think that is more manageable. I am still unpacking, and getting my office set up. I am not ready to commit to any shows.

his answer is one stupid sentence

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 6, 2013 9:07:10 AM PDT

Sam, ok. you don’t speak english?

This is the point I started to think Pascal is a douchebag. He starts to get a bit desperate, pushing us to confirm this show.


From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 6, 2013 10:57:11 AM PDT

the conditions are great. So let’s go for the 3 shows. best regards Pascal

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” <></> Date: September 6, 2013 11:22:20 AM PDT

>Sam, ok. you don’t speak english?

I speak English.

(long pause)

But I don’t speak Dutch or Finnish or Swedish or Spanish or French. So getting lost in the middle of France worries me.

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 6, 2013 11:36:54 AM PDT

i speak english…

I do not respond, because I don’t like his attitude.

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 8, 2013 12:39:25 AM PDT

Hello Sam, don’t worry, i’m going to make the best for you. I hope 5/6 shows, more the Berlin one, of course! Something like a 10/11 day tour… Best regards Pascal

without a reply from me, a follow-up email

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 8, 2013 1:16:33 AM PDT

Hello. So, i have read again your email below…So, 10/11 dates seems to be really more realistic (Germany, Swisterland , Italy? A posibility…). Below, so very really important things:

– i don’t pay myself for a van. I just could asked for a litlle bit money to each promotors regarding that. All the bands/artists i have made came to Europa have managed themself all of this. It’s to you to work on this.

– The same for the vivas and work permits.

– Each evening, you are gonna have the backlines you need (could you sent me the backlines list? Thanks)

– Each evening, foods and 3 hotel rooms. A normal way.

– I don’t provide a tour manager.

– 2 months before the show, i sent you a deposit by bank transfert to your bank account. As soon i have recuperate all the money from each promotor.

– Each evening, the balance will been paid in cash to the band representant.

For the moment, i have a nice gig to Berlin. I continue all the researchs. I let you known as soon i have another options.

I need to know imperatly if you want to make this tour happened. As soon as posible. To continue all the job.

Best regards


From: Athan Date: September 8, 2013 5:45:47 AM PDT

Pascal, Sam and I will discuss all of this. Thanks for your all of your work. ~athan

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 8, 2013 5:51:25 AM PDT

Hello Athan, ok. I need an answer as soon as posible, to continue (if you decide to make this tour) or not (if you decide to stop it) the researchs. I think you understand. I really want to book it but this is to you to take a decision now. And i’m gonna respected this one. I hope good news! Best regards Pascal

Pascal is sounding a bit desperate. Like he really wants to get that money from the club in Berlin

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 8, 2013 10:47:43 PM PDT

hello, i really want to make this tour happened. 10/11 days, 8,9 dates. Something in this way. With a great routing. I really like to work on this one. I have a first date, like you known. And i could made something nice around this one. Let me known asap. Thanks! best regards Pascal

I don’t have a copy of the next email. But Athan wrote “Hey P” in the salutation of an email. A likes abbreviating people’s names….

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 5:48:45 AM PDT

hello Sam, all is over, forget this tour. Athan has called me like “P” to an email!!!! So, all is over….My name is Pascal.

And i don’t work with peoples who called me “P”!!! A minimum!

From: Sam Date: Mon, 9 Sep 2013 08:12:39 -0700

Wow. The drama. Thanks for your assistance. Best of luck. Sam

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 8:14:51 AM PDT

you are not ready to came to Europa. Definitly. If i have get more dates, nothing will been changed: you have not came! Clearly. So it’s a good way to stop now.

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 8:20:05 AM PDT

When do you have came to Europa for the last time and made this tour?

No one apparently. And each time you have cancelled all the dates. So i have made the good decision.

The fact of the matter is Blacktape has never booked a European tour, so we have never cancelled anything. We performed three shows in Leipzig – Prague – Bucharest in 2011, none of which were cancelled

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 8:23:44 AM PDT

could you told me the last time you have made a tour to Europa? Thanks.

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” <></> Date: September 9, 2013 9:28:10 AM PDT

Pascal — Please do not email us anymore. I like working with peaceful partners. Good luck. Sam

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 9:33:23 AM PDT


sorry to have found gigs for you to Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Dresden, to Germany…i have now to cancell all this options. thanks a lot for your profesionalism…

Sorry to have made my job. Just this way…

nobody wants to work with you to Europa like i have done.

You are not a real great “tour manager”. so, please, for the future of the band, if you want to came to Europa, take a real one. i have some good adress!

YOU, never written to me again. You are ridiculous. like a poor child.

best regards

Goodbye to you. No regret…..

and then, four minutes later

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 11:16:49 AM PDT

are you so stupid? You have no respect. and never i will forget this one.

Thanks to have met lost my time with Black Tape For A blue Girl. Could you explained your way? Because it seems to be a totaly incredible one. I just want to know what happened.

If you continue like this one, nobody wants to make some dates with you, and it’s could been a normal one.

It’s incredible so much imatures peoples….

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” Date: September 9, 2013 11:27:01 AM PDT


You have some serious drama issues, my friend.

I am a poor child, yes. I cannot afford the time it takes to read your emails. : )

> I just want to know what happened.

All of this because A shortened your name to “P” which he does with everyone. He calls me “S” — so what. What happened? Easy: this “P” sends you into a passive-aggressive tantrum? Insulting me and my band? Calling me stupid? Well Well Well. Why? Why?

Stop bothering us with this nonsense, seriously.

The next nonsense email you send, and I will forward your messages to the press and all your contacts. We are done with this now, mister Pascal. If you are wise, you will NOT respond to this with many new messages. Facebook, and the world awaits your next move.


From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 9, 2013 11:38:36 AM PDT

2 days ago we are spoken about to made a good tour to Europa….and now this way….

and you read my emails because yo umade some answers to this ones…

I just want to book some dates for black Tape For A Blue Girl, nothing more….why all this stupid story???

At this point I just stopped emailing him. Another wanker. Time to move on. But then I get this email, from the club in Berlin

From: “B.B.” Date: September 12, 2013 6:36:42 AM PDT

Hey Sam,

I’m really sorry to bother you like this but I cannot think of something else to do.

I’m writing on behalf of the XXXXXX Club in Berlin Germany.

A few weeks ago we started the contact with Pascal Alliot who was booking your concerts. Since we really wanted you to play at our club we booked a concert for the 16th of May next year.

On Monday we transferred the deposit for this concert to Pascals bank account and on Tuesday he told us that the concert has to be postponed. This all seemed very strange to me. Now I want to make sure that he really is you booker for European shows and you know about those concerts, because we already had such incidents in the past.

I normally don’t get in touch with the bands like this, especially not, if there is a booker in between, but as I said the cancellation right after the transfer made me a little nervous.

I would really appreciate an answer as soon as possible.

Yikes, so Pascal got paid an €800 deposit for a band that he did not have an agreement to book! I told B.B. we are not working with Pascal, and she should get her money back. Now we fast forward to September 17th. I started asking around about Pascal. band #1

Hello Sam, no mate, he is not our booking agent.. he sent me a similar email (they seem generic!) a couple of years back… I am not sure if he is a scam artist or not, but such things would not surprise I would say..BE ON YOUR GUARD.. contact that berlin club and explain the situation as you think it is. I hope you get it sorted and no damage done..and I hope this message finds you well! Good luck.. best wishes,

I started doing more sleuthing on the internet. I found this posted on a band’s blog with a slightly different list of bands.

“I am Pas­cal Alliot from From Day­Dream­Book­ing and i work with bands and/or artists like X, L’Altra, The Zom­bies, Mas­ter, Lit­tle Axe, Tuxe­do­moon, The Nits, The Trif­fids, Gary Lucas, Kel­ley Deal (Breed­ers), Acid Moth­ers Tem­ple, Arno, Pau Riba, Stack­ridge, Sex Gang Chil­dren, Richard Pin­has, Drug­store, The Smithereens, Dwight Twil­ley, The Pretty Things, The Vibra­tors, The Diodes, L’Enfance Rouge, In The Nurs­ery, High Lla­mas, Soul Asy­lum, Front 242, Mark Olson, Gruppo Sportivo, Clem Snide…) and we want to have you for one or two weeks tour in France, Great-Britain, Scan­di­navia, swis­ter­land, Bel­gium, Italy and Spain, Nether­land, Polo­nia, Ger­many, Por­tu­gal, East Europa with 7 to 10 dates or more in 2013? Let me know. A posi­bil­ity to received a bio and a record to the fol­low adress may be done? Thanks a lot for this. Pas­cal Alliot, Ramon LLULL, 28, 3E-1A, 08330 Pre­mia De Mar, Spain. It could be really inter­est­ing if we have the posi­bil­ity to make some­thing out. Best Regards, Pas­cal Alliot Day­Dream­Book­ing (0034)665 104 283”

And hey! What about that Twisted Sister-fied country known as “swis­ter­land” ??? : ) I found a post elsewhere with a different business name and email:

Daydream Nation //

and a facebook page:

I posted about Pascal on my Facebook page. One of my fans translated a post from Pascal’s Facebook page:

This (french) guy don’t uses so much Facebook. If you see it, last comment on his cronology it’s from a place called “Bar La Goleta” says this on 16th May:

“This guy, Pascal (Supposedly manager from somebody), after to disturb me along a month. When I said to stop to disturb and I don’t want to book a 3,000€ show. He answered me “You’re a fascist! Fuck you!” Cheers for the “good” foreign people, they consider Catalonia it’s a good place for someone to speaks on another language […]”

They’re insulting on his own Facebook and he don’t cares! Possibly Pascal don’t really exists (BTW: His postal adress looks like a fake), anyway I’ll some investigations. Front 242 plays in Barcelona on November and I know the promoter.

And I can confirm this guy not is Clem Snide manager too.

And then I started emailing the bands he claims to work with. And got some interesting replies:

Klive Humberstone, In The Nursery

Hi — Pascal/DayDream Booking contacted ITN in January 2012. We responded with cautious interest, sent some promo CD’s. The emails went cold after 5/6 weeks. Felt maybe he was just scamming us to gather CD’s and promo material etc. The first email is exactly the same, just cut’n’paste to extract the band in question. Thought he was harmless, but if he is extracting guarantees from venues under the premise of representing as a booking agent that’s detrimental to any bands credibility. We will inform our tour agent in Germany (WOD) and anyone else who we think needs to know.

Pieter Nooten

Don’t ever work with this guy Pascal Alliot and his so called daydreambooking!! He is an absolute fraud. My label and I myself had problems with him, can’t believe he is still working in this field.

unnamed band #2

They told me they have a lawyer after Pascal for being threatening.

Tuxedomoon had a less negative experience: Blaine L. Reininger, Tuxedomoon

hi, Our experience with this guy was not good. I hear the same story from many others, gig offers followed by freakouts. my friends in savage republic had a similar experience. pity. the guy seems to get interest where no one else seems to. just not able to follow up on details like the right number of hotel rooms, right items on the backline. he did, however, pay on time. i will give him that much.

as i said, we DID get paid with this guy. that wasn’t the problem. of course, tuxedomoon has toured europe a lot and we all speak 5 or 6 languages besides english so we were able to function as our own tour manager. this guy introduced us to the clubs and we did the rest. still. he’s a geek. everybody knows it. blaine

OMG! The stupidity continues

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 17, 2013 5:34:56 AM PDT

Hello Sam,

a long time…

i have sent you all the details regarding Berlin….You have forget??? You could been an honest one. I have spoken with Sebastian regarding all of this. It’s to you to came to Europa and made the gigs. As well we are agree together regarding the conditions. (the club) is a good people, and, clearly, i’m gonna resent the money, don’t worry about this. But, i just want you to be honest and profesional. Not some childs to the scholl aera!

been honest is a good way…You have some gigs to Europa, to you to accept to make this one.

best regards


From Sam Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2013 08:08:01 -0700

Pascal & (club person B.B.)

You must immediately send the money back to (the club) berlin!

I have heard from many many bands that you claim to represent, who have told me he does NOT represent them. He does not represent Black Tape For A Blue Girl, there was never a signed contract or even an agreement reached.

This needs to be over with as soon as possible.

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 17, 2013 9:36:04 AM PDT

what kind of war do you made? You know by yourself you have cancelled al this gigs and never you are came back to Europa…So, why are you talking in this way? Be respected, thanks!

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” Date: September 17, 2013 9:58:19 AM PDT

Pascal —

>what kind of war do you made? You know by yourself you have cancelled al this gigs

We cancelled nothing. You never signed a contract with us. You never told us your fee. I repeatedly told you I was not ready to confirm shows without more information.

On September 6th, I wrote, “I am not ready to commit to any shows.” On September 9th I ended our work together after your tantrum.

>and never you are came back to Europa…

What does that sentence even mean???

>So, why are you talking in this way? Be respected, thanks!

You must immediately send the money back to (the club) Berlin! You have no right to take money from (the club). Send it back immediately. Sam

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 17, 2013 10:19:31 AM PDT

i am gonna made a justice action against you for difamation. Definitly. As well i am gonna resent the money to (the club). Don’t worry about this. It’s not your story.

disapear. definitly.

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” Date: September 17, 2013 10:24:57 AM PDT

You are a very funny man. Just send the money back to (the club). sam

Now this gets even stupider. Emails between Pascal and the Club, where he claims he doesn’t have to give the money back! First we jump back in time 5 days, so you can see the development….

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] To: (Club booking agent B.B.) Gesendet: Donnerstag, 12. September 2013 08:41

as well the deposit for BTFABG has been sent and i don’t have for the moment no news regarding the dates, could you been interested to made Pankow (classic band from Italy) at the date we have seen with the BTFABG (or another one)?? It could been great. Similar conditions but no backlines (exept a video Beamer). 4 peoples on the road. Let me known! It could been a first solution…Thanks! It’s an idea..

I wait for your answer! Best regards Pascal

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2013 11:03:03 +0200 Hello pascal,

sorry, but we are not interested in doing Pankow instead. Please send us the deposit back as fast as you forced us to send it to you and we´ll talk again, when you have news for BTFABG.

So – send the deposit back immediately.

9/20 clarification: I have communicate with Pankow’s manager, and Pascal has never booked the band, nor ever had the rights to book the band, Just another one of his lies!!!

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] Gesendet: Donnerstag, 12. September 2013 11:12

so i prefer to have the deposit again. I resent you this one if i don’t definitly not found a solution with the band. Definitly.

Then, his drugs kick in, he blames the club for canceling the show:

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] Gesendet: Donnerstag, 12. September 2013 12:45

So you cancel the gig? because i could have soon a new day to propose to you. Just let me known.

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2013 12:17:15 +0200

Sorry, but: NO.

If you don´t have a concrete offer NOW, you have to send the money back IMMEDIATELY, otherwise it will entail SERIOUS legal consequences.

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2013 13:25:21 +0200

We CAN´T cancel a gig which has no date! As soon as we have a new date, we can do a new contract and send the deposit for this contract. Meanwhile: Just send the money back. I´m serious.

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] Gesendet: Donnerstag, 12. September 2013 13:38

we have a problem…i don’t have to resent the deposit. As well we have to make a new date, for you to resent the same one, as well the conditions will been the same….. And you make some menaces agaisnt me. (“If you don´t have a concrete offer NOW, you have to send the money back IMMEDIATELY, otherwise it will entail SERIOUS legal consequences” YOu remember?). So, that’s mean clearly you have cancelled the posibility to make a date with the band i have proposed to you. As soon i propose a re-schedule with a promotor, they is no problem. But, you, you ask for your money back. So, it’s clear, you don’t want to make this gig. So, that you cancel…In this way, no money will been returned. Read the contract.

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2013 11:34:09 +0200 Hello Again,

Perhaps, you should better read the contract – and the laws. We have a contract about a specific band playing at a specific date. When you are not able to hold this, you can´t fulfill the contract and so, you are obliged to send all the deposit back as fast as possible.

This is the one point.

The other is: That we are in contact now with Black Tape For A Blue Girl, which informed us, that you never were allowed to book anything for them.

Pascal – send the money back the next 5 days. If you´ll don´t do this, we will give this whole thing to our advocate, never minding that you are in a foreign country. Besides this, we will inform ALL local german promoters about your name and why they should´nt ever work with you..

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] Gesendet: Dienstag, 17. September 2013 11:43

i’m gonna resent you the money the date of the gig. More than clearly. And not sure you have spoken with the band. Yes, this is the truth, we have finaly decided not to work together. Because they don’t know if they want to came to Europa, as well i have found some dartes for them…You want the emails?? You could spoken to all the peoples to Germany, this is not important to my eyes…

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2013 12:21:18 +0200

Of course, this is not legal and also not acceptable for us is any way. In germany and also in spain you have to refund payments already undertaken for services not rendered immediately.

Reasons, why the band does not want to work with you are absolutely irrelevant for this.

Von: pascal ALLIOT [] Gesendet: Dienstag, 17. September 2013 12:46

it’s absolutly legal. You don’t make your own rules, no? To the contract, nothing shows i have to resent the deposit in 5 days…So, i’m gonna refund this one the day of the gig. And if you are more great….and you have lied regarding you have been in touch with the band. So, i’m gonna taken time…

From: (Club booking manager B.B.) To: Date: Tue, 17 Sep 2013 13:12:34 +0200 Of corse, it is not legal – we don´t make the rules, but we and especially our lawyer knows them really well. You tried to sell something you were never allowed to, so any contract is invalid. You better should also talk to a lawyer, when the money is not back in the next 5 days..

Hello B.B.

Thank you so much for your email. Black Tape For A Blue Girl would LOVE to play (the Club) someday soon. However, we are no longer working with Pascal. He contacted us out of the blue and said he could book a tour, which is very exciting. But we never had a contract, and when I began discussing details with him, he started acting very strange and sending abusive emails. I don’t have time for that.

Please be sure you get your money back from him.

When Blacktape has a new album out, I would like to have Athan contact you directly, because I would love to play a show at (the Club).

My first job was archaeologist, for around 20 years (Inrap, Cnrs, France,…). So i thought i could have a consation with him…Or maybe you don’t have one? In this way, i could made an action against you for difamation?? since the debut you want to make your own rules and you lie to me (regarding thre band). As well i’m agree to resent you the deposit the day of the gig, and i am gonna made it. Definitly.

Oh – sorry, forgot that you can´t read. Mail with the band was sended – see + READ below!

After reading all that, this is my message to mr. douchebag


I can’t believe you are such a gigantic douchebag asshole. You now blame (the club) for cancelling the show, when you are ripping them off!?!? You never had the rights to take the deposit, because you and Black Tape For A Blue Girl never reached an agreement for booking a tour.

B.B.: My advice is that if Pascal doesn’t have the money in your hands by Wendesday the 25th, you have your lawyers solicit his ass to hell. Every band I have spoken with tells me Pascal is a psychoathic lying RIP OFF ARTIST who fucks everything up, harrasses people, and threatens litigation.

At this point, he is just stalling, hoping you forget about this. Don’t let him get away with it. He is a scam artist.

Pascal, if that money isn’t back very soon, this story is going worldwide. Cut your asshole bullshit, and return the deposit to the club.

This has to end by Wednesday the 25th. Have a nice day, Sam Rosenthal

(I think ending with “Have a nice day” makes it all really classy, don’t you?) : )

5 minutes later, from Sam Rosenthal Dear P, and all. My apologies. I spelled “psychopathic” wrong in my previous message. Corrected, below. Have a great day, S

From: “B.B.” (at the club)

Yes, it’s on our account : )

Some people tell me I was too hard on Pascal ALLIOT. But I beg to differ. I was not hard enough. The man is a grifter. He finds ways to scam people out of money, and torments bands mercilessly with his psychotic emails. He’s a stain on society. —– As the screenplay ends, Pascal clutches his receipt from the bank as he takes his own life. He falls into a ditch on the side of the road. A truck drives by. He is splashed with mud. The screen goes black. FIN. A buoy on the Sea of Pascal | Update 9-24-13

A breath of “reality” to clarify something…

From: Pankow’s manager Hi Everybody. This mail is to inform / warn you, that PANKOW have NO agreement with the AGENCY ‘DayDreamBooking.’ The person claiming to work for this agency (Pascal Alliot) recently tried to book shows for a band (BLACK TAPE FOR A BLUE GIRL – USA). He booked a show for Black Tape For A Blue Girl in a club in Berlin and asked for a 800 Euro deposit from the club, which he received. The only ‘problem’… Pascal Alliot had no agreement with the band to book a show. So he immediately turned back to the club and postponed the show. When the club contacted the band and found out Pascal was decieving them, he offered the promoters Pankow, instead. Problem is, he doesn’t represent Pankow, either.

Very professional… if not to say: Criminal.

For the record, Pankow played a number of bigger festivals this year (Wave Gotik Treffen Leipzig, OutofLine Weekender Berlin, Bodybeat Stockholm, Electrostorm Festival Köln… ) which will be followed by selected shows in winter. A regular tour is being prepared for AFTER the release of next Pankow album, in fall 2014. DayDreamBooking / Pascal Alliot has NO rights to book this band. Please stay away from paying deposits or booking the band, with anyone other than myself.

I hoped the “Sam & Pascal Comedy Revue” had come to a smashing conclusion last week, with the man dead in the mud on the side of the road. But no, like a Zombie, he is back. Oh lord, how he is back! Watch closely now. 4:40am, Personality #1 sends me a message. #1 is the soulful man of ennui.

Hello Sam,

I have learned this few days before i have been in touch with you. And she begans chimiotherapia next week…It’s a very important one…Second one, i have get a very sad news from Paris, the city where i have livedseveral years…My ex-wife has been commit suicide (out of window one) with my heigh year child…A young man. 3 month ago…I have travelled from Premia (it’s my actual adress), to Paris, to reconize the corpses, Laure and my child, all together..Terrible. You can’t imagine….And never i hope you to make this kind of way.

I am totaly lost. I have decided since this week, with my actual wife to stop the booking for a certain time. To take a new start regarding all of this sad stories…And take some posible hollidays…The time to been necesary. To be an human again.

That had to be the most horrible and dishonest email on the internet. I wonder how many hundreds of time he has sent out that canned email about the suicide of his ex-wife and child, to somehow explain his fraud? And his mother’s cancer?

Time for my morning round of “taunt the idiot.”

From: “Sam Rosenthal [Projekt]” Date: September 23, 2013 8:00:33 AM PDT

Pascal, you funny funny man. The word you are looking for is “Defamation” — which has to do with making FALSE statements. Since that blog is all your emails and my emails and the club’s emails (with some humorous comments for the fans), there is nothing false in there. My advice: shut the fuck up and crawl under your rock. Sam

PS: you don’t represent Pankow, you big liar. Why did you tell the club you represented Pankow?

Personality #3, the insult spewing racist homophobe

yes i ‘m am funny man and i like it, definitlyn poor jew guy from New york, gay man…”Defenestration“….Sorry for the bad word. “Pençons a l’avenir petit pebe”

yes i have represent Pankow but i have told all the promotors i don’t made them again. So, ask to their manager, all is over.

I am an honest man..And you never been a friend of mine. And i’m gonna made an action against you to pay. .

Wait. Did that clown seriously just tell me that I am a gay jew from New York? That’s the best he can do? Is he in third grade? The Frenchman is slipping! The network bosses are going to fire us both, he needs a new joke-writer.

Visit Facebook for multiple speculations on the translation of “Pençons a l’avenir petit pebe” (seems his french is as bad as his english).

One more “taunt the idiot” for the day… Wait, fuck! Before I can even email, he sends another. This seems to be personality #1 or #2.

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 23, 2013 8:22:21 AM PDT


Just been honest: We have made a gig, it has been cancelled, and i have been resent the deposit to the venue….And i am totaly sorry about it.

So, could we made a peace? Thanks. You seem to be an interesting people, definitly, i have read your novels and books (not so far from Venus Erotica, Anais Nin,…). Myself, from now i stop work like agent booking. And i am an archeologist. A certain number of excavation. Look behind (

Have a nice day, Sam

From: pascal ALLIOT <></> Date: September 23, 2013 8:41:30 AM PDT Hello,

Just seen this one… This guy (Sam?) is totaly silly. And i am gonna made an action against him for difamation. And i have found peoples to America (CCi) to make it, around 75. And against you if you support this people (i have your adress). I began all the action justice from tomorow. The 75 peoples from US has sent me all the details i need.


Wow. He contacted 75 peoples from US in the last 11 minutes, and they all knew about me. I didn’t know I was that famous! And his ability to contact people is impressive. He must have some serious spamming software on his computer. (The sound of truck breaks screeching. The scene stops. We cut to a POV from up high.)… Before today’s grand finale… A little bit of commentary. This is from a discussion on Facebook.

Dave: To me the guy just comes off as pitiful and pathetic at this point — at least he returned the money to the club…Sam did his part to remedy a fraud that was perpetrated overseas in his name — and I applaud him for that. Sam’s been a good sport about it — but if you put yourself in his and his band’s shoes — upon reflection… what that guy pulled was about as funny as being the victim of identity fraud and I wouldn’t want Sam and the rest of the band to feel discouraged about touring overseas due to the very real and serious problems related to this incident… however funny it may be to the rest of us. And I love to color outside the lines on facebook as often as I can myself — but identity theft related financial fraud is no joking matter.

Sam: You have put a lot of thought and feeling into this, and I appreciate that. But I have no big emotions about Pascal. He doesn’t upset me or taunt me. He just makes me laugh, like watching a cartoon. I am pretty removed from being emotionally swayed by the insane people I have to deal with in this business. I am not a buoy on the Sea of Pascal. : )

Brian: I’m totally on board with APascalypse Now.

Sam: (Pascal looks up at the ceiling fan, as he begins to speak) “Barcelona. Shit! I’m still only in Barcelona.”

Ok. We jump back into the Sea of Pascal, four minutes after we left him and his 75 peoples in New York…

It is almost pathetically sad here, how he keeps sending a message every few minutes: waiting and hoping for a reply. I can picture poor, disheveled Pascal, his coat still muddy from the ditch. He is furiously masturbating, stopping to check himself in the mirror and then check his inbox, hoping for another round of insults. He looks down, his dick is limp. He checks his mail again, hoping my email comes: the precursor to the boner of all boners. Pascal weeps. His inbox is empty. Oh, the cruel fates! “My first job was archaeologist,” he shouts in despair. The wind mercilously rattles the window glass. Pascal openly weeps.

December 23, 2013 addendum. There is so much more Pascal I could add to this blog, but I can’t bring myself to dive into the madness again. The good news is I am hearing from many people who were suspicious of Pascal after an initial contact, and they googled and found this page. It prevented them from being taken. Posting this blog is my good deed for 2013 (and perhaps all time). I still have more Pascal in my inbox that I have never read, ’cause reading his messages is like getting into a small box with a toxic vampire. But he’s lost his teeth, so he just gums you and covers you with drool… Anything to make life a bit lighter….

April 2, 2014 addendum. This lunatic is still actively trying to scam clubs and bands. His current claim is that he represents Modern English & His Name is Alive & Martha Wainwright (daughter of folk legend Loudon Wainwright II). He doesn’t represent anyone, except for the lunatic personalities that occupy his brain. Thanks for visiting this blog. Be warned: don’t work with this guy. Don’t fall for his shit. Don’t give him money.

Really? He forwarded my blog to all the famous blog readers? That was nice of him, to let people know what a scammer he is. My work is done here.

June 2nd. This is a screen shot from a friend’s inbox. It shows emails from Pascal announcing the bands he CLAIMS to represent. Now, truth be told, one of these bands contacted me today to say that Pascal recently booked 3 shows for them (they aren’t yet willing to be on the record with this). Which doesn’t discount everything else I have written here. One of P’s 700 lies turned out to be true, it was bound to happen. A broken watch is right twice a day. But the other minutes of the day, it remains wrong.

Pascal is a professional scammer. Apparently, he does some booking. It’s like a poker cheat. Sometimes you have to play a regular hand. Just to look like you’re in the game for real.

Here are the bands Pascal CLAIMS to represent today:

So i continue DayDreamBooking. It’s not your fault, you have made all you have could to stop me since one year now, something like this. When exactly?…But i have just nothing to care about you and your stupid blog. We don’t known each others. Maybe you could been like “Bel Ami”, the Guy de Maupassant great or poor guy (everyone to make a judgement…) from this fantastic book. YOu have read ii?…Sorry, i prefer to speak in french…Use a traductor. For the tours concerning DayDreamBooking, i book, to the debut of 2015, several ones. Like The Only Ones, The Electric Prunes, Hawkwind (few dates to Spain/Portugal/Germany/Ostreich), His Name Is Alive (TBC, i make a precision) and Modern English. So it’s a great way.

Since one year, i don’t have seen any dates to Europa for Black Tape for A Blue Girl, as well you have promised to the famous berlin promotor you want to play there absolutly….No problem…But she waits for your return. Easy to speak about peoples, but you have to respect your decison…

Some Facebook fan comments on Pascal:

S.M.: God, I can’t stop laughing! I know I shouldn’t but, really, his command of the English language ranks just below that of my cat. ‘disappear’? ‘fordwarded’? ‘tomorow’? ‘peaples’?! Sam, don’t hate this guy, love him for the joy he brings with his unique version of English. As this guy would say ‘I leaf know with much belli laff.’

N.L.: The eponymous star of Dostoyevsky’s The Alliot, Pascal, who began life as a computer program, has a lifelong dream of repeatedly humiliating himself for the low, low price of €800. Yes, for this pittance, you get the dubious delight of the original Google Translator shitting his pants while standing on his head. He couldn’t get [Your Band Here] to play, so he’ll settle for Yakety Sax.

E.S.: Awesome reading with my cup o’ joe. Quote of the morning,,,,”Not some childs to the scholl aera”!

D.S.: I think someone should record a parody of that epic Faith No More diddy, retitled ‘We Care Alliot’

C.D.: He’s an unflushable.

J.C.: Anagram of his last name = Li A Lot

Saturday Feb 7, 2015 Pascal is going long here! He’s trying to get clubs to pay him $10,000 to book Dick Dale. I contacted Dale’s booking agent, and of course Pascal is not working with them. He’s just trying to scam promoters. Wow, this Pascal guy is legendary! What a loser.

Ok. So I try to ignore Pascal, because he’s a psychic vampire. I filter his stupid emails into the trash. Who knows, he might be sending me 5 a week! However, when I open my “filtered” mailbox on Facebook, there are always a few more people thanking me for posting this blog, and saving them from the endless horror that would be found in “working with Pascal.” I had to share this one. The turd that keeps on turding tried to scam Molly Hatchet!

Molly Hatchet: Brescia show cancelled for probable scam Translation: Colony Club statement: We’re sorry to inform you that the MH show scheduled for april 2 2016 has been cancelled. It was proposed by an agent with whom we had never worked, and the arrangements were, as usual, partial payment in advance of the contract, another part on the 30 days before and the rest on the evening of the concert. Too bad for the money that we had to send abroad there was no invoice, and that the bank account which was not the one of the agency, but of the agent… So we decided to look for information about who was this person/agency, and found this: and this:

Bands, don’t be scammed by Pascal ALLIOT / Daydream Booking

If we add the fact that MH currently have not announced anything about a supposed tour, given that there was no bill to send money and MH still not responded to our request for information about, we have decided to cancel everything, I would say that we do not need swindles.

October 2017, email from a band in Croatia

Hi Sam — In case you were wondering (but somehow I’m sure you aren’t 🙂 ) Pascal Alliot is still alive and kicking. Last week I received his email with his interest to book one of my bands (xxxxxxx) in Europe and Oceania (??). He claimed that he is from DBBooking agency and even though something didn’t felt right (I could read his copy/pasted email only on my phone but not in my browser) I did reply expressing cautious interest and asking for his agency website link as I couldn’t find it. In next email he said that he is totally independent agent, which only raised my suspicion.

Luckily, in a meantime, our Turkish agent warned us that he is a scam and sent a link of your blog about him so then I remembered why his name sounded familiar as I’ve read it several years ago.

So, I just wanted to thank you for posting it publicly and for bringing the scammer out to the daylight. Thanks, all the best!

Pascal is still at it. Recent twitter post from AC/DC drummer Chris Slade.

Still at it, I see. Facebook link. What message did he remove? Unknown.

As you can imagine, I didn’t open the attachment in that message.

July 8 2021 Oh. My. God. —— I just came up with the perfect name for the Pascal ALLIOT movie. “The Story of P”  (homage to the French erotic novel “The Story of O” : ) April 14 2022 Shine on you crazy diamond

haha! I saw We are the Physics 2014 Facebook post that reads, “Hooray! We’ve finally been targeted by infamous scatter-gun fraudster Pascal Alliot. This is better than a Grammy! Read about his idiocy here: (link to this blog)”

If you thought the pandemic might have finally silenced this madman, you would be mistaken. He scammed straight through it. Pascal A is just too boring and pathetic for me to post an updated every time I get a message from another band that was saved by this blog. But let’s go with some new details. Here are his emails to one particular promoter (….. No, he doesn’t book these acts, of course!):

And here Pascal harasses the promoter after they call his BS: I sent this advice to the promoter:

Warning: Pascal is an energy vampire. He gets his boner from having lunatic fights with decent people like you. Best is to laugh and enjoy the run, but now stop and filter his emails to the trash without you reading them. Don’t get sucked into the void!!!

My blog is still the #1 result on Google for his name. This blogged crossed my mind because another band contacted me after reading this (“He’s a really well known scam here in France, and while his perseverance must be acknowledged, he became a booker/touring crew joke.”)

I am saving the world, one band at a time…
