Just to alert everyone to a new venue which has opened in University Avenue. Common Grounds is a not-for-profit operation, which gives all profits to Third World charites. Many of the staff are volunteers. Consequently we can't pay you to perform, but we will provide the following:
Assistance with publicity
Assistance in selling any cds you may have recorded[/b]
We hope to start a regular Thursday night early evening music slot, and have already hosted gigs by Ken Haddock and Duke Special. Due to the nature of the venue, we are looking for acoustic acts - think MTV unplugged. (I'm not really sure thrash metal would work in a cafe setting!)
If you are interested in performing please contact Karen at
email@example.com. This could be an ideal venue to promote new material.
Thank you for reading this message. Regardless of whether or not you are interested in playing Common Grounds,
please feel free to drop in anytime for a coffee. I can personally recommend the vanilla lattes.
[b]Coffee not profit[/b]
[i]Instead of making us richer, we thought it would be better if our cafe concentrated on making a proper cappuccino or a great bowl of soup, and then gave any profits we might make to support community projects in the developing world. If you enjoy good coffee, good company and you want to make a little difference, then come along.[/i] [b]You'll find us at 12-24 University Avenue, Belfast[/b] Edited by: rentaghost31 at: 10/1/05 12:28 pm
