Minister of Propaganda: Music classes are starting soon–drums (Chris Deese/Taylor), music theory (Mitcham/Jason), sax (Mitcham), vocals, intermediate/advanced guitar (Jason), and stand-up bass; to sign up you must be a dues-paying member, and come talk to me (Krish) and those people if you’re interested. Propaganda meetings will start next week.

Open Mic Officer: Theme this week is Valentines and Poetry; Erato is our special guest with poetry, but we still have an open sign-up sheet; everything will be filmed, subscribe to our YouTube page to see it weekly.

Equipment Manager: I literally just got done managing my own equipment. Also thanks to Alex for helping manage my equipment, because I couldn’t do it alone. We do sound classes starting next week with recording; they happen biweekly, alternating between studio (using Reaper) and live sounds.

Advertising Officer: There’s a show this Saturday, and I’m passing out fliers.

General Manager: I’m in charge of the space during the daytime. In protest of Beyoncé not winning Album of the Year, I’ll be playing “7/11” on repeat until I’m fired.

Historian: I am #1 UTC Friendship Meme Curator. If you hear everybody laugh at something during a meeting and you don’t know why, come talk to me.

Vice President: I am in charge of booking practice time after the meeting, so come talk to me about that after paying practice fees with Meredith.

Booking Officer: If you want to book a show or see someone here, just let me know.

IT Officer: I’ve finally paid dues for the first time in two years.

President: Make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, etc. Next week’s meeting, we’ll have a sound class and a jam session afterward. Also, if you want to work an upcoming event, talk to Jack.

General Announcements:

Krish: Is anyone interested in going to do Willie Nelson. If I get contact high, they can’t blame me if it shows up on a drug test, right? Also there’s Billy Joel. He wrote “Uptown Girl,” I was listening to it today and it’s a pretty good song.

Alex: If for some reason you don’t want to go to open mic this Thursday, my band Organ Machines and Greg “The Hendler” Hendler’s band exStellarator are playing at Union EAV Thursday 9 pm, you should come see us play. It’s 21+.
