Okay, this is where I’m supposed to write something new and clever about the Ides of March since today is March 14 and this edition of Guitar Noise’s Events Horizon falls one day before that historically fateful day. But apparently, the Ides of March aren’t playing anywhere in the next ten days so I guess I’ll have to wait ’til next year.
In the meantime, you can sit back and enjoy 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!
Since this may indeed be a “once in a lifetime” event, do yourself a favor and try to get out and hear some local music over the next ten days! Here are some places you might check out (and be sure to write in to let us know of and post some more!):
Tonight! Wednesday, March 14, 2012
If you’ve not heard guitarist Jason Ennis, you’re missing a fine artist! Jason plays tonight as part of the Natalia Bernal Quartet. They’ll be playing from 6 to 10 PM at The Garage, which is at 99 7th Avenue South in New York City, New York. Should be a terrific show.
