Officer Announcements:

Booking: New Band Showcase Finals are this Friday November 18th! If there’s a band you wanna see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, come talk to me!

Social Chair: We’re also gonna be tie-dyeing UTC T-shirts this Friday November 18 at 4 p.m. Stick around for New Band Showcase Finals!

Advertising: We need a new flyer for New Band Showcase Finals! 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.

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.

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.

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

Treasurer: Dues are $10 yearly, practice fees are $10 since we’re at the end of the semester. Pay dues before booking practice time. Also we’ll eventually get T-shirts, which are free for everyone who’s paid dues.

IT: I run the website at gtmn.org, where you can find pretty much anything about Musician’s Network. If you see anything you think should go on the website, don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m also working with Austin on a 3D tour of the space.

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

General Manager: If you’re curious about Student Center renovation, come talk to me. I run the space as a music lounge/study space/designated on-campus nap area during the day. If you have music requests during the day, talk to whoever’s working. We’re open 9-6 every day during the week. We’re starting Planet Earth Mondays, where we show episodes of Planet Earth during daytime hours. 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.

Open Mic:  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.

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: There’s a suggestion box on the website! If you have any suggestions, feel free to  submit them there.

General Announcements:

Jed: I’m one half of the new band Junior Prom along with Claire and we’re playing New Band Showcase Finals. It’d be cool if you came out, we have some cool songs which we think don’t suck. We’re taking your suggestions for songs! Suggest ideas here. Also I do my own solo things and I’m putting out a solo EP at the end of the week. It’s gonna be sick.

Caroline: My band the Merry Go Rounds is playing for the last time Friday December 2nd! We have a lot of merch, so if you come you can get free merch. Also Sunday December 4th will be the Musician’s Network Christmas Party! We’ll be giving out Foamies, which are sort of like superlatives but they’re totally ridiculous.

Chris: My band the Organ Machines has a show at Smith’s on Thursday. It’s $8, and it’s gonna be a kinda short show which is cool. Also it’s the day before my birthday so you should all be there.

Gabe: Come to New Band Showcase Finals, they’re all really good. Also this spring I may be buying at least one pineapple a week, so I’m gonna have a lot of extra pineapples. Tell me if you have extra pineapples.
