A belated Happy New Year to everyone and welcome to the first Guitar Noise Events Horizon of 2012. I hope that you all had a wonderful finish to 2011 and that you have a lot of live music ahead to enjoy in the upcoming year.
To give you some ideas of the music out there (and to give you places to go if you’re in the general area), here is our weekly blog post where we do our best to catch you up on upcoming shows featuring members and friends of the Guitar Noise community, taking place all over the world. Or at least wherever and whenever people let us know they’re happening!
As you know, we at Guitar Noise believe that the true power, wonder and beauty of music comes when it gets shared with the world. So whenever you’re out playing, we’d really like to do is to help promote your shows, whether it’s in a stadium or at a ten-seat coffee house. Not only is it a great way to help support each other, it’s also a terrific way to meet more musicians!
Every Wednesday, we’ll post here about the gigs we know are coming up in the following ten days or so. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to attend a show should they happen to be in your corner of the world!
