Its a busy week for us over here at the Mimosa HQ. Gigs everyday from last Saturday to next Sunday then off to a cruise contract for a week on Monday! Nothing on the 11th and 13th though, everyone needs a break to play table tennis, right? Right. Your bloody well right.
On the agenda today we have:
1. Gig Promotion
2. Band name discussion
3. General banter
Lets begin. Simply and in bold to start with, then more in depth and less obtrusively afterwards:
Tonight October 9th – Parramatta Lanes Festival thing – 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Tomorrow October 10th – Parramatta Lanes Festival thing – 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Sunday October 14th – Black Sheep Bar, Newtown – 6pm – 9pm WITH BAND
Sunday November 4th – Tastes at the Bay, Nelson’s Bay – 1:00pm – 4:30pm
Saturday November 10th – River Festival, Lane Cove Plaza – 10am – 12pm
Sunday November 11th – Newtown Festival, Black Sheep Bar, Newtown – 3pm – 4pm WITH BAND
We are playing tonight and tomorrow night for Parramatta Lanes. I want to say its a Festival but their marketing team seems to have avoided that word… it is however, clearly, a mysterious and awe inspiring gathering of music, food and lights, that anyone in their right minds would make an effort to get to. We will be playing 2 x 45 min sets each night one at 7:40pm one at 8:45pm.
Now… you may have noticed two of the gigs are WITH BAND. This is true. We are trying to start playing more regularly with a few others, 4 to be precise. Double bass, guitar, sax and drums. We have played with all these guys a fair amount in the past and we love it but time goes on and things are hard to organise. Anyway, in a recent bout of inspiration we have tried to start a semi regular gig with them all to see where it can take us. These gigs are the beginning of that! What is pressing though is that we don’t have a good name for the band yet… I personally would like to include ‘Mimosa’ somewhere in the name to help with marketing but Pheebs doesn’t care too much, she cares mainly for a fun vibe… Any ideas?
We have been asked back to Tastes at the Bay in Nelsons Bay, which is great as its a lovely little Festival! We are very much looking forward to spending the day up there and filling the streets with our noise.
Since the last email I have set up an instagram account… I put it off for years but recently failed… anyway, the question is, will this email be automatically posted from this Mailchimp account through Facebook to Instagram?! Hold onto your seats!
