Hi guys, just letting you know how my Band is going!
We've got a "Warm Up" gig at the Yorkshire House in the centre of town tomorrow, getting £150 for 2 45 min sets, we've done longer for less. Seems more like a wear out rather than a "warm up!"
Everything is being geared towards our gig at the Music Hall as part of the Alternative Music Festival presented by Bullet UK Productions to celebrate their birthday. Since they sold out gigs for Electric 6, Shed 7 and The Bluetones, they decided to celebrate their birthday in Shrewsbury which has given us our chance! We are playing on the 1st night, in front of only the Signed Bands! Easyworld are playing and Peter Brame from Fame Academy is headlining. Razorlight, who have had quite a bit of coverage on MTV are headlining the next day. Without a doubt this is our biggest gig yet, and I haven't helped things by straining my left hamstring and finding it hard to put weight on my left leg without it getting close to collapsing!
In case anyone doesn't know I'm the bassist and wierd noise maker and generally the one who comes up with the mad ideas. I also write some of the lyrics. If you go here http://www.musichall.co.uk/theatrejan.htm and look down the list to the 23rd and 24th, you will see my band's name on the list. My band is called Telex! On the Wednesday there is a Jazz gig I might be going to on the list. Surprisingly Shrewsbury, or more generally, Shropshire, is a hotspot for Jazz, which I've really got into lately.
Anyway wish me luck, I'll try and post some pictures and feedback!
