    Hello good people; we are a band called 'A Symphony Of Stars', and we HAVE JUST LANDED OUR FIRST GIG IN THE FRONT PAGE ON THE 30TH MAY WOOO :)

    Only problem is, we have to pay 120 for the night apparently...

    We shall be doing a lot of advertising.. handing out leaflets and what not in Belfast, Lisburn and Newtownards so we can expect a haf decent pull :)

    The problem is though.. That we have a 15 minute set and so we would like another band to play that night to take up some of the gig time and also to help pay the 120 however we shall pay more of the sum as we are not playing as much and we are in theory the openers...

    Please get back to me soon if You are a rock/metal band and You are interested in playing and we'll get something sorted asap :)

    LET'S MAKE THIS A GIG TO REMEMBER LADS!

    Thanks - Carl Evans.

    What exactly does the 120 charge cover? I presume that's room hire, soundman, and mics/working PA etc?

    fuck 120 notes?ive had cheaper prostitutes and longer than 15 minutes too!lol.Id seriously check out other venues like The Pavilion or Lavs or.....pretty much fuckin anywhere that doesnt charge u 120 squid of ur hard earned.i can pretty much guarantee that it would be way more hassle than its worth.im assuming that money is to pay for the soundguy and maybe a doorman.......as oul Bruce sang.."Run to the Hills!"

    Hahaa lol

    Well my band shall pay 80 of the 120 and play 15-20 minutes and the other band(s) shall play for the rest of the night and pay the other 40 so it doesnt work out too ba dfor You guys does it?
    We are a new band and just want to get used to giging so if You are genuinely interested please reply..

    Yes the 120quid covers doorman..Advertising your band andd gig.. the room.. etc etc

    Lads, you can hire out and put on your own gigs for FREE in Auntie Annies/Lavery's/Pavilion - ok a sound guy will cost you, but not 120, not even 80. Flightstrip here does a great job, I'm sure he'd get you sorted.
  7. avatar TheShredguru
    Do you guys have a number for auntie annies or lav'ss
    we'd like to give them a call? :)
    Thanks - Carl.

    Google the pubs names and ring up, ask for the events arranger or whatever.

    Just use the Pavilion, good room, nice bar, and FREE.

    120 notes for fuck all is what you get for the Front Page, the PA is bust, most of the lights are broken, you have to clear the stage to set up your gear, the barman is a wanker and the area is shite.

    That sounds fucking terrible. It won't even be worth the effort. Just grab a few support slots or book Lav's/Pavilion.
    Sorted.

    Mr Shred. You should bite his hand off, this is a good and worthy offer. No need to pay such a large amount for early gigs, do the same promotion for this support slot as you would for the Front page and you'd (collective you'd) be better off by however much you would be have spent otherwise.
  13. avatar Strong Reaction
    Definetely.
  14. avatar TheShredguru
    I definitely think we shall be giving the front page a miss..
    Lavs pavillion and auntie annies'll do me rightly :)
    Thanks for this guys! saved me 120 :L

    Could just play metal and make the set last 30 minutes :P
  22. avatar TheShredguru

    And we just play metal but pick it really fast palm muted... if Aidan gives us that support slot for the 11th sure some of ya's may see ;)

    Thanks - Carl..
