Yeah, I decided planning was more iportant-the page is half done, look out for it later in the week! Have got a more important announcment though;
This year, because I basically told Bandsoc I’d do it and I work for Ents, I am once again organising the Acoustic Battle of the Bands (I’ll look for the logo later!!)
This year it will be held during Unplugged, with many thanks going to Darren and Ben Ashmore for allowing the hi-jacking! The dates will be;
Heat 1, Saturday 20th Jan (week 2)
Heat 2, Saturday 3rd Feb (week 4)
Heat 3, Saturday 17th Feb (week 6)
Final Saturday 10th March (week 9)
If you wish to enter, do so by email to me by weds next week (Jan 17th) unless it fills up before then. I’ll then go over to the Graduate bar somewhere around 6:30 to carry out the draw in front of a group of independant edudicators (erm…people I know…) to decide who is which heat.
The rules are as follows;
-This is an accoustic contest. The only instrument of not totally acoustic origin allowed is a keyboard but this must remain on “piano” setting.(The other option is I make you haul a mini-grand up the stairs!)
-Anyone can enter, either solo, duo or group acts; if you are usually an electrified band I’d ask you put some thought into your acoustic arrangements, don’t just play your normal stuff acoustically-I’ll give you the schpeel on why I say this later if you want, but last year saw some really inventive work but Replica X and Pink Spider as they adhired to this!
-You really ought to be a member of Bandsoc, but unless Chaz has changed his mind this is not compulsory in this contest.
-sets are 15 mins long in the heats and 20 minutes long if you make the final. Points will be deducted from professionalism for over running.
-There are 6 places in each heat (18 total). There will be a panel of 3 judges who will choose two people from each heat to compete in the final
I think that’s about it…I am post-school, so I may have forgotten something…please feel free to remind me…
So yeah, emails to the warwick address please!
