The news in briefs (aka bulletpoints)
- I’ve just finished my last bit of work for uni and now just have a dissertation proposal meeting (weds) and a 9am-5pm audition on tues to go.
- Am about to launch a podcasting project on Burnfm.
- Have been offered (and taken) the position of Generation Next Future Media Production Assistant for Channel 4 (more on that later.)
- Have a featured open mic slot at The Phoenix, Coventry on Monday
- Am preparing for my first gig with a full band at The Rainbow on Friday 29th May…
So firstly the ‘big gig…’ I’ve been dreaming of playing The Rainbow in Digbeth for over a year. It’s literally my favourite Brummie venue so I can’t believe I’m getting to play there. I’m playing with the wonderful Dan Smith, who I played at the Yardbird with in March. You can check out my myspace or my youtube if you’ve not heard my music before. All tracks on myspace are available to download for free! I’ve got five extra people helping me so expect glockenspiel, keyboards, guitars, drums, bongoes and a saxophone…
Also big thanks to all the lovely tweets about the Channel 4 internship I was very pleased too! I’m going to be focused on the Big Brother website and a few others I’ve not been told about yet. It’s my first proper paid internship so hopefully I won’t be too overdrawn at the end of summer like I was last year.
Hope to see you at the Rainbow on Friday!
