Posted by Comments off

Open Mic is Thursday at 8:00, with signups at 7:30.

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

Sign up for Solo Artist Showcase! Signups close this week! Semifinals are 10-15 minutes of music, original works only. First place gets to record a 3 song EP; second place gets to open for a concert. The deadline for signing up is January 30th. Details are on the website. 

Officer Announcements: 

Advertising: Look out for a benefit show in February. Start gathering canned foods now. In terms of being involved in advertising, we are in kind of a lull right now, but we’ll have Groovy Friday this Thursday if the weather is good. As of this week I’m moving that to a weekly thing depending on the weather. We also 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.

Chris Moore, Faculty Advisor: I am here to support you guys from the faculty side of things. We have a new manager of the space who’s super excited to be working with you guys. If you have questions, I teach the recording and mixing classes. Contact me at chris.moore@gatech.edu.

Minister of Propaganda: I am in charge of the Solo Artist Showcase. Sign-ups close tonight at 8. I will be sending out an email with info regarding deadlines and resources for you. 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, although we are currently in a lull. You don’t have to be an officer to join.

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

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.

Open Mic: I run Open Mic nights every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00, with signups at 7:30. We’re going to be introducing themes, and if you do something related to the theme, you’ll get a fabulous prize, mostly candy. 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.

Equipment Manager: I manage equipment, including rentals and lockers. I’m also in charge of live sound, so if you’re interested in learning more about that, come talk to me. If there’s anything broken, missing, or out of place in the practice time, please let me know. Since it’s such a group space, we need everyone’s help to keep the space running smoothly. If you ever need help fixing something, talk to me.

General Manager: I am 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. We also have upcoming paid events that we need help with; talk to me if you’re interested.

Advertising: We’re looking for more people to get involved in advertising, so if you’re interested in that, come talk to me.

Booking: We are looking to do a February charity show involving canned food for the food banks. If you have band recommendations, shoot me an email. If there’s a band you want to see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, come talk to me. We’re changing the model this year, looking to do bigger shows but fewer of them.

Studio Manager: I run the studio. We’re in the process of improving the studio and its almost done! ; details about studio fees are on the website. Studio sound classes are starting back up next Sunday.

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 the Solo Artist Showcase! Information is on our website! We have officer meetings 6:00 p.m., and they’re open to everyone as of today! Also, we’re doing subsidized concerts as a club, where we help pay for your admission.

General Announcements:
