Posted by Comments off

Open Mic is Thursday at 8:00, with signups at 7:30.  This week’s theme: Meta (Music About Music)

We’re having a Groovy Friday this Thursday at 11:00 on Skiles! 

Officer Announcements: 

Advertising:  We’re always looking for more people to make flyers and get involved in advertising, so if you’re interested, come talk to me, our other advertising officer, our Minister of Propaganda, or our Booking Officer. Also, check out lessons below.

Booking: If there’s a band you want to see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, come talk to me.

Minister of Propaganda: I am in charge of all things advertising. Our advertising committee, the Ministry of Propaganda, is a great way to get involved with the club; we produce flyers, chalk out on Skiles walkway, and more. You don’t have to be an officer to join. Also if you want to put up flyers, please do that. We have a lot of them.

Secretary: I organize and send out meeting minutes. If you need to join Orgsync or get on the mailing list, come talk to me.

Open Mic: The theme this week is Meta: Music About Music. I run Open Mic nights every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00, with signups at 7:30. I’m also in charge of live sound, so if you’re interested in learning more about that, come talk to me. I teach live sound classes Sundays at noon. I also run the YouTube channel, so if there’s anything you want to see, or you want to get involved with filming or photography, come talk to me.

General Manager: From here on out, the General Manager position will be more of a liaison with other GT organizations. I am also in charge booking for all GT Orgs events at utcorgbooking@gmail.com. GT Orgs must pay for a sound engineer to work the space. Further details are on the website.

Equipment Manager: I manage equipment, including rentals and lockers. I also run the studio, so if you need anything recorded, or have any questions about the space, come talk to me.

Studio Manager: Contact me if you want to book studio time. I run the studio. The studio is now open. It’s a resource for students to produce music in. The rates are up on the website. Studio sound class will be this Sunday; this weeks topic will be recording drums. Live sound class is from 12 – 1 on Sundays and Studio Sound is from 1 – 2

Advertising: We have free lessons! See below for more information. If there’s an instrument you want to learn, or if you’re interested in teaching, come talk to us.

Treasurer: Dues are $10 yearly, practice fees are $15. Pay dues before booking practice time. If you pay your dues, you’ll get a T-shirt.

Vice President: I am in charge of booking practice times, so after paying dues and practice fees, come talk to me. If you have any other questions, come talk to me. After practicing in the space, make sure you turn everything off, wrap up cables, and have the info desk lock up the space. Talk to a GSM at the desk or call the number if they’re not there.

President: Come to our officer meetings right before the general meeting if you are interested in leadership of the club. I have been working on figuring out the changing situation regarding our relationship with the Student Center.

General Announcements:

Chris: I am selling two cymbals, a crash and a ride. They are not broken. The price is negotiable.

Merritt: Arts@Tech is throwing an event for tomorrow @ 11 at Under the Couch. Coffee will be involved. Come out if you want.

Austin: I am spearheading a Musician’s Network Survey. This will get us information about why people join the club, and where they want to see the club go. This will help the club run to better serve the student body’s needs. Expect an email within the next 24 hours to get the link to the online survey. Spread it around, as we need as much data as possible.

Roshni: If anyone wants to cover shitty emo music (Black Veil Brides) for Open Mic, talk to me.
