Hello and welcome to the last Event’s Horizon for April, 2012. This, as you know, is our weekly Guitar Noise blog post where you can get news and pertinent information concerning 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!
And, being the last posting in April, it means you’ve only a few days to send a note of congratulations to Tom McLaughlin and Life Is Drama, who have been chosed as Main Floor Music’s Band of the Month for April 2012. Go check it out! And be sure to check out Life Is Drama live if you have the chance!
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! So here are some places you might check out (and be sure to write in to let us know of and post some more!):

We wish you the best with your shows as well as a great time at any show you can attend. Maybe you’ll get to meet some of your Guitar Noise friends in person at long last!
