Musician’s Network Meeting Minutes 9/19/2016

Posted by Comments off

Officer Announcements:

Treasurer: Dues are $10 yearly, practice fees are $15 per semester. Pay dues before booking practice time.

Social Chair: My job is to plan non-concert events for you guys to come to every month. We’re gonna be tie-dyeing UTC T-shirts. The date hasn’t been confirmed, but stay connected on social media.

Booking: This semester I won’t be booking all by myself. If there’s a band you wanna see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, come talk to me! Couchella is this weekend! There’s also an afterparty at Phi Kap.

I’m also running New Band Showcase! Emails were sent out last week. New Band Showcase is a battle-of-the-bands type competition where you get together and form bands, or sign up an already existing band, and compete for prizes! Frist place wins free studio recording, second place wins a spot on a bill sometime during the semester, and third place wins free practice time.

Advertising: Couchella is this weekend! 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. We’re looking for a meme-themed flyer for the Pinkest album release show October 7th.

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. We’ll also be having a jam session next Monday after the meeting.

This Thursday from 11 – 12 is Groovy Friday, where we sit outside on Skiles walkway and play music.

General Manager: 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 just got a shipment of tiny UTC is a Safe Space stickers! 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.

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.

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

Equipment Manager: I manage equipment. I run the studio, so if you need anything recorded, or have any questions about the space, come talk to me. There will be studio sound lessons at 1 on Sundays. Also we have lockers outside, they’re 4′ by 4′ and there are two open. Come talk to me if you’re interested in renting out a locker for $20 per semester. They’re first-come-first-serve, but we’ll be considering how much you actually need the locker as well.

Open Mic: I run Open Mic nights every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00, with signups at 7:30, but Open Mic is cancelled this week due to the home game. 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. The 29th (that’s two weeks from this Thursday) will be Geekapalooza, the open mic comedy show. If you’re interested in helping set up Couchella, we could absolutely use your help. Meet here at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

IT: I run the website at gtmn.org, where you can find pretty much anything about Musician’s Network. If you see anything weird on the website, or want to see something that you don’t see, don’t hesitate to let me know.

Lint & Loose Change: We’re planning our October issue, so come talk to me if you’re interested. We take art, writing, and original music submissions. If you want to submit, you can submit to llczine@gmail.com. Our deadline is this Friday.

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:

Elliot: I’m in a jam band called Free Hat and we’re looking for a bassist, so if you’re interested, come talk to me or Jonathan Zalzman.

Sam: I’d be interested in giving lessons on either reading sheet music or music theory, so if you’re interested in either of those things come talk to me.

Merritt: The lyrics/songwriting workshop is this Wednesday night. There’s gonna be cookies and coffee and guitars and piano so you can play your things and we can give you constructive criticism.

Jake: I promised a friend I’d buy his Austin City Limits tickets, so if anyone wants to see them I have one weekend pass for the last weekend of September.

Tanika: There’s a Warehouse album release show September 30th at Murmur with Breathers, Free Pizza, and Pallas, so if you’re interested in going to that talk to me.

Chris: I’m still selling a 7 string Telecaster. I also have a friend who’s selling a Schecter Hellraiser, so talk to me if you’re interested in either of these. Also my band The Organ Machines is playing Couchella afterparty, and we’ll be playing some stuff we’ve never played before.

Mallory: I’m going to see The  Violent Femmes September 25th at the Buckhead Theatre, so if anyone’s interested in going with me come talk to me.

Aryaman: I’m heading to Gojira this weekend with three other people, so if anyone’s looking for a ride, come talk to me.

Aaron: I’m looking for an XLR to XLR cable, so if anyone is selling one come talk to me.
