OK, so the gig on the 27th is coming together:
- the PA and most bands are confirmed.
- the venue is sorted and yes you can run a bar, and no it won't be
evicted before then
- The Rub is co-ordinating the gig (ie he is the "promoter"), along
with Planetman - they have lots of experience. The Rub is not able to
get email often enough now (phone cut off), so you should PHONE RUB on
- stage manager on the night = Mudge.
- contact at the venue is Phoenix, and their "office" is
- Dean and Andi generally best IMC contacts for the gig
I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT PROMOTION IS NOW, given that gigs
usually have a run-up time of 2 months, and you will have 8 days of
promotion once the flyers and posters are ready. I have seen plenty of
potentially full political/benefit gigs FLOP because of
insufficient/inefficient promotion. That means leaving Wednesday's
meeting with a roster of exactly which people will flyer exactly which
gigs/events/markets/students (I usually make up a spreadsheet and get
people to committ to particular times/places). But really your best
advertising is your website, so it should be blazing the middle column
************* WHO IS DOING THE FLYERS and when can they be emailed to the
It's pointless having flyers unless they are ready by this Friday,
which means having the artwork done Tuesday or Wednesday. Phone Rub for
flyer info. An A3 version should also be emailed to Andi, who is printing
A3 posters on Thursday nite.
Please wait til next week to put the exact address online. This is what
you should put on indymedia.org.uk NOW:
Indymedia UK's 5th Birthday Party
Saturday 27 November, after the Anarchist Bookfair
Rhythms of Resistance Samba Band
The Rub (electronic set)
Penny Rimbaud (Crass)
Special guest: the Federal Bureau of Investigation
8pm-4am, Tufnell Park community centre, entry by donation
All proceeds to fund new IMC servers.
8pm-10=3D IMC films (can anyone tell us what films?)
10pm-2am = live bands
2am-4am = DJs
THere is room for one more live act and one more DJ, but I've already
asked plenty of people, so it will fill up.
QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERING AT THE IMC MEETING ON WEDNESDAY:
- finalize budget
- who is promoting which location/event?
- who is picking up flyers/posters and where can they be picked up from
(eg Rampart, TuffPk, Resonance etc)
- who is running the bar, doing the door etc? (should have one extra
person, eg Dean, not assigned to anything, to act as a
"troubleshooter" alongside the stage manager).
- how to get flyers out to the reliable IMC extended crew?
If we do all this preparation it will all go well and you'll have a
successful event. I can, at least, guarantee that the music will blow
