Musician’s Network Meeting Minutes 4/13/2015

Officer Announcements:

Equipment Manager: I don’t have an equipment manager joke. I had a very involved whiteboard joke, but Caroline took the whiteboard. I don’t have much to report, but we just made a bunch of Deese-icions about what to buy.

Vice President: At the end of the meeting, you can all kill each other to book practice times. We’re booking 2 weeks because of the show next week. There’s a bake sale tomorrow from 1:30 to 5:00 or whenever all the baked goods are gone. We’ll be on Skiles, unless it’s raining really hard in which case it’ll be in UTC.

IT Officer: I gave access to the new website to someone arguably more qualified than I.

Booking Officer: If you want to book something or complain why I didn’t book something, talk to me. There’s a show on Monday with Buffalo Buffalo, Several Bears, and Supreme World Emperors.

Advertising Officer: I have 4 things: We have a bake sale tomorrow, it’s gonna be cool. Proceeds will go to Couchella, which will be pretty cool. We also have groovy Friday on Friday, Caroline’s parents and sister will be there. Next Monday there won’t be a meeting. I can’t remember the 4th thing so fuck it.

Historian: I have nothing to report.

General Manager: I’m the General Manager, I manage the space during the day. On Friday, Earth Day, there will be an ongoing show 10 – 3 during the day. Secondly, we’re going to start setting out coffee during the day. We appreciate donations, especially so Caroline can make scone children that we can eat.

Advertising Officer: We have flyers for the show on 4/20. Take flyers and put them everywhere, especially where you live. Also groovy Friday.

Treasurer: Dues are $10 yearly, practice fees are $15 per semester. Pay dues before booking practice time with Caroline. You should wear your T-shirt tomorrow to advertise the bake sale.

Secretary: I have nothing to report, but if you need to join Jacketpages or get on the mailing list, come talk to me.

Open Mic Officer: This week’s open mic theme is baked goods and slam poetry, so Caroline can bake on Wednesday. So if you have fantastic haikus, bring them to open mic.

President: Basically what everyone else said. We don’t have a full meeting next week, but you should come anyway for Buffalo Buffalo, Several Bears, and Supreme World Emperors.

General Announcements:

Chad: My band, Antarcticats, is playing at the Masquerade on Thursday at 8. We can make it free for you if you talk to Andrew Joyce.

Steven: Tokyo and Chance the Rapper just released a single. Also I’ve been having a rough time lately, can we have a group hug? (group hug ensues)

Jason: I teach free group guitar lessons on Thursdays at 4:00, so if you want to learn for free you can show up for that.

Taylor: I’m going to a concert on Thursday and my concert buddy bailed on me, so if you’re interested or just don’t like open mic or Chad, come talk to me.

Jack: We need workers for the shows on Sunday and Monday.

Roshni: Archie and I are performing something at Open Mic that you seriously need to not miss.

Alex: Apparently record store day is Saturday, so there should be a UTC contingent that goes and does record store stuff. We should also do Korean Karaoke things at Happy Karaoke 2. 2 other things: Eliot Manassa is going to see OK GO, but he doesn’t have a ride. If anyone wants to go with him, I can connect you to him. Also I’m from a band called the Organ Machines, we have a show April 30th at 9:00 at WonderRoot. 4 reasons to be there: Organ Machines, Smooth Aviator, exStellarator, and Rad Giraffe.
