Hey breadheads: Sorry it has been so long since our last newsletter, but we’ve been working on some really cool stuff so have no fear! We are still big, bad, and ready to throw down. First, lets get you some info on some tasty shows we have coming up.
We’ll be getting real friendly with Providence over the next couple months with some killer shows lined up. On May 3rd we will be making our triumphant return to the Fete lounge to play the classiest show we’ve had yet. They were amazing to us for our album release, and this time we are getting “classy” to show them some love. This show is a suit & tie affair, where we are asking all of you to dress up to the nines, break out the shoe shine, throw on your best, and together we are going to make this town look good. And to kick it up a notch, we are going at it unplugged style: that means uprights, fender rhodes’, and those oh so silky smooth soulful vocals you know and love. We have new arrangements you haven’t heard, and some tasty covers we know you’ll enjoy. Also with us will be an excellent DJ from Providence, Goldmine. He always spins good stuff, so plan on getting down big time. The music starts at 9pm, and the cover is a mere $5! What’s better than suiting up and vibing to great music? You’re right, I can’t think of anything either.
Why? How? Huh?!
As I’m sure everyone is well aware, internet social media is one of the most important tools that we possess as musicians trying to forge a career by our own devices. One of the most common issues that is prevalent in all the blogs and articles I have read seems to be that they are just too many sites and too many profile possibilities to differentiate from one another. While one band member tweets, the other is posting a Facebook status, while another records a video of all this to put on YouTube which will eventually go to six other different sites, and on and on. Overall this process becomes a noisy congruence of pictures and catchy words where nobody knows what to post and how to put things in order. However, after reading through tons of articles and hours of scrolling through blogs I’ve come up with a list, a hopefully helpful guide, of what appears to be common threads on a smart social media plan of attack.
