    My first post!
    I'm in a music collective who gets bands that are not getting gigs or they are only starting of or if they just want a gig, a gig.

    For more information on this contact Walpurgis at bewareofthefishys@hotmail.com. Only bands from Belfast should apply for this as the venue is in Belfast.

    The venue is the Menagerie

    New gig dates confirmed. check out www.welpurquis.50megs.com the storys and gigs page. towards the bottom. The bands playing at a date will be put on to let you know if theres any slots left. After you pick a sutible date contact me. bewareofthefishys@hotmail.com

    Ps. No Bands Will Be Getting Paid For Performing. AS this is only to help your band get known. Edited by: bewareofthefishys2004 at: 8/5/05 11:14 am

    Even if you make money?
    If you do and you don't pay anyone - what's the money to be used for?

    And err...
    What's the name of the music collective?
    Just curious as you seem to be doing something similar to myself.

    well the thing does get money but most of it is used to pay the venue for letting us use the hall and thats not cheap,this is being done to help bands not for us to make money, also the sound guy gets paid. Then with the money that is left over (which isn't alot) It gets used to get leaflets printed for the next gig the [b]Cliftonvile Music Collective[/b] is putting on and also to buy new equipment for the bands to use.

    Any chance of more info for the Cliftonville Music Collective as I live in the area maybe I could join ?
  7. avatar bewareofthefishys2004
    Well to fine out more about the collective you would need to go to the community centre on manner street and ask for Paul on a sunday around 1 to 6 pm.

    How about you get something up online, instead of your offer of trekking up the CVR on a Sunday afternoon. A phone number would be nice too.

    As someone who grew up in North Belfast and the Cliftonville Rd in particular it's good to see something like that getting set up. But get the finger out and make it a bit easier for bands to get in touch with yourselves and find out what the craic is.

    Not too sure bout the abbreviation though guys -- there's a pretty big music-based organisation down south that might wonder at having its name up everywhere....

  14. avatar bewareofthefishys2004
    lots of bands have applyed for this and filed up all the slots at gigs so bands that apply might have to wait a while, but were stil taking in bands for a waiting list.

    How about making an actual site dedicated to gigs, sorta like beardedgigs. Rather than having to trek through pictures of your friends and inane stories about fighting.
    Just a thought. :)
