Pot Belly Battle of the Bands

By Manageable Ann - 29 October 2008 13

Hi everyone,

My name is Sean and I’m running the Pot belly Battle of the Bands commencing this Saturday 1st November, every year its held its a wonderful celebration of up and coming acts plus a useful forum for established bands to continue plying there wares. Unfortunately this year there seems to be a lack of bands, this is not out of any form of disenchantment or alike emotion but more due to the fact that the original dates I was given were wrong so the bands who were booked have to a large extent had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. So I’m putting a shout out to all people who love music to contact all the bands they know, or at least alert them to this post or the link below because I NEED them, for this Saturday and following Saturdays throughout November.

There are prizes:

1st prize – “Buzzsaw” guitar plus $300

2nd prize – $200

3rd prize – $100

Heat times (There are available times for all heats still):

1st heat – 1st November (Short notice I know but if you’re free and in a band, there is a set open for YOU)

2nd heat – 8th November

3rd Heat – 15th November

Semi Final – 22nd November

Grand Final – 6th December

More details are availabale at this link:

Obviously if you’re not a Facebook acolyte then that won’t do to much for you, but you can also contact me @:

seansme@hotmail.com or phone on 0450 318 071

Hope to hear from you!!

What’s Your opinion?

CHeers, Thumper. 🙂 I’ll get to it this evening after the missus and I see Strassman.

Whoops, moderated….

I’m thinking the following feldons songs…

Down on Love- http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ny3p5DEiI_c

What lies beneath- http://www.thesixtyone.com/TheFeldons/#/TheFeldons/collection/5453/

Dig a Hole- http://www.revolver-act.com/index.cfm (sorry about the quality, this was an old band)

But have a listen to all the stuff and work out your own arrangements. I’ll send the chords and lyrics if you decide to try some.

Fnaah,

yeah. you guys are pretty tight. I’d reckon you’d play some well.

Of course, you’ll have to pick the best ones to suit you.

I’ll email you tomorrow man.

Overheard 5:51 pm 29 Oct 08

Hey, Manageable Ann. I saw you and AC at the Front last night. I was being door b!tch but you two must have snuck in while I was off collecting pizza and other Turkish foodstuffs for some of the troops around the corner.

I wanted to give you guys an update on the radio concept I was bending your and AC’s ears about at Filthy’s a few weeks ago. (Short answer: it’s coming, but so is Xmas and the latter might actually get here first.)

If you’ve still got my card, give me a yodel sometime next week. Otherwise I’ll try to get along to one of these Pot Belly nights sometime…. yikes, they’re Saturday nights and I’m out of town for every damn one. Coises!

Thumper, that’s a rather exciting prospect – do you think we’d actually perform them well? I’m actually very interested in your *honest* opinion on how we played – email me?

No worries, next week or the one after will do if you can do it, let me know!

fnaah 4:30 pm 29 Oct 08

A twisted part of me likes that idea too. ;P I’ll talk to the lads and see what we can come up with (i think this weekend is definitely out though).

Manageable Ann 4:00 pm 29 Oct 08

Cover Bands are welcome!!!

I love a cover, play them well enough and you could win the whole thing…..actually a twisted part of me likes that idea

Thumper 3:15 pm 29 Oct 08

fnaah,

you want to do any of our songs?

I’ll lend you some 😉

fnaah 3:05 pm 29 Oct 08

I know covers bands are much maligned, but are they welcome to this comp?

Manageable Ann 2:34 pm 29 Oct 08

Always a chance for that type of thing, at the moment we need bands to be able to film, once that happens anything is possible.

PM 2:18 pm 29 Oct 08

Love your work Sean – see you tomorrow at “muso night”.

Any chance of filming any of the entries and uploading them to the web?
