Hello and, yes, it’s been a while. Between a lot going on over the summers months (for both myself and my computer), it seems like I’ve been on a bit of an extended vacation. Albeit a vacation where one is constantly doing things and not relaxing. Not to mention not getting almost anything done!
Be that as it may, welcome (or “welcome back” if you prefer) to this week’s edition of the Guitar Noise Events Horizon. In case you’ve forgotten, these Events Horizong blog posts are meant to give you 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!
In the Guitar Noise community, we 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!
