Hello and my apologies to everyone who may have been looking for our May 2, 2012 post of Guitar Noise’s “Events Horizon.” Truth be told, it was sometime last Sunday when I thought to myself, “did I ever post that last week?” and then, realizing that indeed I had not, decided to just wait until this week to post a new one.
So, anyway, welcome to the belated first Event’s Horizon for May, 2012. As you know, this is (supposed to be!) 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!
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!
So (usually!) every Wednesday we (try to) post a blog 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!):
