Happy Thanksgiving! Go eat some food!

The last show of the semester will be December 2nd with The Merry Go Rounds, The Future Babes, James Hunter USA, and Priam! It’ll be The Merry Go Rounds’ last show ever as well as Priam’s first show.

No open mic this week!

We offer free lessons! See the bottom of this email for details.

We’re having a Christmas Party December 4th! Invite your friends! Suggest Foamies and bring a gift for the white elephant gift exchange!

Check us out online at gtmn.org!

There will be a strike system for practicing after hours. Please clean up after yourself in the practice room, and please have the GSMs lock up the space when you’re finished. Wrap your cables, put away microphones, etc. 

The 2nd meeting of next semester, we’ll be holding officer elections.

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.

Equipment Manager: I’ll be out of town this week, so I won’t be holding sound class. 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.

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.

Social Chair: Thanks to everyone who came out to the tie-dye event! If you paid dues, come see me to get a shirt.
On the topic of T-shirts:

1. Cover dyed fabric with plastic wrap to keep damp. Let set 6-8 hours or longer for most intense colors. Fully rinse dyed fabric in warm water until all extra dye is removed and water runs clear – removing rubber bands if used.

2. Fill washer to large load setting with hottest water suitable for the fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Wash and dry separately.

Wash separately the first few washes. Do not allow dyed fabric to rest wet on other items.

Minister of Propaganda: This show is gonna be incredible. 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.

Open Mic:  No open mic this week! December 1st will be the last open mic of the semester. 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: We’re looking to hire a new student manager and two desk workers for next semester. Additionally, our hours will be 9-5 Wednesday of reading week to Wednesday of finals week; we’ll be closed Thursday and Friday of that week. 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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Booking: The last show of the semester is December 2nd! If there’s a band you wanna see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, 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: Next Sunday, December 4th, we’ll be having a GTMN Christmas party! We’ll be doing a white elephant gift exchange and handing out Foamies, which are sorta like superlatives.

General Announcements:

Jed: I just put out a super short ep! It’s like 6 minutes long. I have something planned for winter break so follow me on SoundCloud.

Jack: Merritt is looking good today.

Mitchell: My band Tornadoes of Light is looking for a bassist. Contact me if you’re interested at mitchell.mazzoni@yahoo.com.
