  1. I think this is the right place for this thread

    Getting people to come to gigs can be tough, especially if your a new band and need every bit of support you can get, so all you guys living in the great island down under post up a list with you band name and any up coming gigs, or if you have no knew gigs coming up, just list your band and where your based and maybe on of us will see you in a flyer or bill in a bar and check you out, its also a great opportunity too meet fellow talk bassers.


    Anthem - Based in Melbourne, played gigs at the Armadale and Barley Corn but no knew ones at the moment.


    PS lets see some threads up from you guys overseas :hyper:
     
  2. i really should learn to type and proof read :eyebrow:
     
  3. Hey CAms...i'm Chris and playy bass for D-Day.

    We are a heavy rock group with catchy songs. Are a 3 piece but sound much larger.

    Would love to see TBers at our gigs...


    Playing:

    14th October.....Pony BAr, City

    30th October.....Melfest 6 at the Armadale Hotel, Armadale

    Rock on
     
  4. Maybe this would be better in Band Management or Misc.
     
  5. maybe a moderator could move it there??? :confused:
    I dont think i can
     
  6. Mods dont acknowledge aussies :D
     
  7. no many people do :D

    Maybe we should start an aussie faciton on talk bass, where we will be free from the violence inhernt in the system, where we can band to together to fight a common enemy...general John Turner will trenble with fear before us.......unless he devlivers a slab of VB to us. :p

    We do have a strange sense of national pride, considering 70% of the country dont know the nation anthem from start to finish.

    TB has the functionality to set up "groups" it would in theory be possible to have a group comprised of "Aussies" on TB.

    Another thing which I thought would be useful was if TB had a propoer "location" (ie selectable country and type in city) so that proper groups could be set up automatically (ie when a new person from Sydney joins up, they can be notified to all the other Sydney TB'ers etc).

    Just thoughts...
     
  9. maybe we can put this idea to Paul? Any supporters
     

  10. Mark you gonna run for Prime Minister?

    Coz i wanna vote for you! :p
     
  11. I'm in for anything.

    Expat Scot in Melbourne and loving it all.

    :)
     
  12. Band name is Hallowed, based on the northside of Brisbane way, Burpengary if you're keen on hunting us down. Church worship type stuff, we played at a youth/young adults convention a fortnight back and might be recording sometime in the new year as a result of some keen interest. Due to the keys and acoustic guitarists being married later in the year we're having a easy time for a while.

    So is this more humor or gig stories?
