Generator: Getting Noticed & Compact

I’m talking at a few Generator events next month, they’re all free to attend but it’s normally best to book in advance. Check out these links for more information:

Wednesday 4th July – Compact: Getting Noticed in Newcastle

Wednesday 11th July – Compact: Making Money From Live Music in Middlesbrough

Tuesday 24th July – Compact: Getting Noticed in Hartlepool

There’s plenty more great stuff being organised by the fine folks at Generator, so make sure you join their mailing list and peruse the events on their site.

Hopefully see some of you at one, two or three of the above!

Fair Play

I’m heading up to Newcastle on Tuesday to be on a panel for Generator at the launch of the Musician’s Union’s new “Fair Play” guide. Full info can be found here:

Other speakers are Ross from The Futureheads, Emma from ITB, Jay Taylor from Manchester’s Ruby Lounge and Daryl Robinson from Eastside Events.

Should be a goodun’! If you’re in a band, make sure you get yourself there.

I will be doing a little talk/Q & A up in Newcastle at Dance City this Wednesday on behalf of the fine folks at Generator.
