Musician’s Network Meeting Minutes 4/21/2014
Tonight: Last meeting of the semester AND the 1st Annual Foamy Awards!
Senior Hugs Officer: I have hugged everybody in this room. (*applause*)
Equipment Minotaur: There will be sound class after the meeting. Also, we got a bunch of new cables for the studio! Don’t take them out of the studio please.
Secretary: If you want to join the club, go give Kishore your money and then come talk to me!
General Manager: I manage generally. General announcement: the SCPC homecoming concert poll is up. Write in a vote for Sleigh Bells ’cause they’d be perfect for it!
Treasurer: Dues are $10 a year, practice fees are $15 a semester, and lockers are $5 a month. Remember, membership dues last for a calendar year.
We’ll have some lockers available really soon! They’re huge. You could fit several things in there. Anyways, let me know if you want to rent one.
Vice President: We have a lot of exciting things today. We have pizza! If you want Dead Week/weekend practice time, come talk to me.
Open Mic Officer: No more open mics this semester… But they’ll be back during the summer semester. Keep up with us on our Facebook group (Open Mic Night at Under the Couch!).
Advertising Underling (Chad): There’s nothing new going on to advertise, so I’ll advertise Mike Stearns’ fabulous Snapchats.
Minister of Propaganda: We have a meeting (along with some SCPC representatives) this Thursday night at 6 in UTC to discuss and plan Couchella! If you’re interested in helping out or just want to know what’s going on, feel free to join us.
Advertising Underling (Ashley): There’s pizza and awards today!
IT Wizard: I’ll be putting changes to the website up next week! I’m adding a bands page to the site, so send me your band name, a short bio, and links to any music pages you have. (Send to firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you don’t, Archie will write a joke bio for your band (but really, he will).
Archie: I’m joining forces with a new organization called Acts of Kindess to do my Groovy Friday thing from noon to 1 on Tuesday in the Student Center. I just realized that I can’t make it until noon-fifteen, so if you wanna play the beginning of it just let me know.
Also, Chicken Dinner Faceplant released a new EP yesterday named “Universal Butt”. Check it out!
Stearns: My two bands (We Few and The Merry Go Rounds) are performing at Wonderroot on Wednesday night!
Leland: Dan Deacon is performing tomorrow. It’ll be a life changing experience.
