Notes on the recent situation:

The Student Center has slowly been taking more and more Musician’s Network control over UTC and around a year ago made it so that we would have to reserve the space through Student Center administration. The Student Center sees MN as a user of the space.

The current situation arose due to a conflict created by an outside group that chose to come into an open mic and use our space without our knowledge to hold a competition. The Student Center received a call from a concerned parent about this “event”. We had no knowledge of this group and to our knowledge they only attended one of our open mic nights. The Student Center then froze our activity for two weeks. This group was trying to take advantage of our open mic by bringing in performers, and we were unaware of this, but the Student Center closed the space to stop more events like this from happening.

We held a meeting with Student Center administration to clear up this situation, and the meeting primarily consisted of the administration informing us of new restrictions they planned to put on the space permanently. These include Student Center workers at all events and practice hours, forms to be signed by performers and bands, Student Center control of booking, etc.

The Student Center does not honor our relationship with our space and we do not support these regulations because we see no threat to students or the space through our traditional operations. There seems to be a fundamental misunderstanding as to how the Student Center sees Under The Couch. The space was originally built through funds collected by the Musician’s Network and the Student Center seems to see the room just like any other in the building.

We currently have a form that we have asked everyone to fill out that asks for positive experiences people have had at Under the Couch and statements that would help us to gain support for our autonomy. This form can be sent out to anyone willing to send their support to Musician’s Network. We are also working to form a statement through Art Matters to gain community support.

 

General Announcements:

Taylor: I’m in a band called Priam and we’re playing in a show February 24th at Centerstage. You can buy tickets from Taylor or Jed for $5, or buy them for $15 on the door. It’s gonna be really emo/shoegazey but also metal and punk.  Taylork1217@gmail.com

Thomas: Going to see the Higher Brothers this Saturday. I’ll be having a pregame party so let me know if you’d like to join (thomas.spader@gatech.edu).

Jed: If you have some drums you’d be willing to let me rent for my band Priam’s show on the 24th, let me know.
