Setting up a live electronic event in South London - anyone interested in playing?
 
Hi,

[Firstly, sorry Mods, not sure where best to post this, if allowed at all... it is specifically about electronic music, but please move it where it's meant to be...]

I'm setting up an electronic night at a venue in Tooting, south London and am looking for people/acts with sets to play. Interested?

The emphasis is using hardware live so no laptops, no DJs, it's not a club night, more like an informal gig night, but focusing on electronic music.

Other instruments ok too, but want to avoid big band setups.

You don't have to be super pro, just be musically/sonically interesting.

Date will depend on having enough interest artists, but should then have a few options.

Will you be paid? Probably not, but equally you won't be asked to drum up a crowd and sell tickets, so just focus on enjoying it.

Get in touch if you'd be interested in playing!

I might be but I do funk stuff so the beats and synths are on a backing track whilst there's a couple guitarists going. It's not necessarily that electronic I suppose.

Zero free time right now, but subscribed to thread and wrote myself a note to check back in around mid april. Good luck!

Not ready yet, but I am getting a solo thing together with looper pedals, Taurus 3 pedals and guitar.

I'll definitely turn up as a punter though so let us know as I'm not far away in Camberwell.

If you can accommodate a drummer and are still running in 6 months my project will be ready by then.

Would love to do it, especially since my singer is in the UK. Alas, I am not. I'm stuck in the remote regions of LA.

What venue and when is the first one ?
Sounds like fun

No doubt your music is sweet, but I wanted this to be focused around synths or other gear primarily. If you think of a way of doing that then cool, why not have some electro-funk thing going on!

Cool, stay in touch, that's an interesting setup your shaping.

Man, where is this 'LA' you speak of? Sounds rustic. ;)

There's certainly hints of that but not exclusively so. I ain't really got a live worthy synth rig anymore either, I can see what you're trying to set up but I'm not into sequencing stuff live. And you try finding keyboard players that wanna do original music in Brum... lol :D

Still fair play for setting this up, hope you can pull it off man

It's a bit chicken and egg right now - I have to basically have something, some acts, to offer them and then we can discuss dates.

If you're interested please can you send me a link to some material and I can send them a few links of our stuff together so they know what the theme is, then I think they'll offer a couple of different dates over the next couple of months.

No worries, let me know if you come across anyone who might be game and good luck with your band too.

I'm banned from running club nights. Last time despite a string of increasingly successful night I jumped to far and booked quite an expensive live act. Sod's law that night had the lowest turnout, same week we moved house. Had to use the money we had saved for new furniture and decorating to pay the band :facepalm:
