So as mentioned in my previous post, I think it’s about time us music lovers took action and helped to create the kind of live music scene that we want for Scotland. And there are some tools at our disposal to help achieve that.
First up is local networking site Meetup. This allows people to set up/become part of a locally based group with common interests who can then spread the word about upcoming events that might be of interest. Like live music, perhaps. So, I’d like to introduce you to Meetup Edinburgh’s Rocksteady. If you’re up for it, please sign up for this interactive group hosted by Jason. He’s done the ground work and is happy for members to make suggestions and post reviews etc. His outlook seems to be the more, the merrier. And why not.
Next, came by way of my encounter with Riverside just last month. When discussing my meet’n’greet with promoter Ridgeback Rock we bonded very quickly over music (or rather the lack of it). So much so, that by the end of the whole fantastic experience we realised that we had inadvertently joined their crew. So, meet Ridgeback Rock – Scotland where we’ll be posting recommended music and details of upcoming events. Please pop by our page and let us know if you like what we’re doing. And if you don’t, please be gentle as we’re still finding our feet.
Also, Loud & Clear will continue to host their own regular events. Details of which will be posted here and come by invitation via our mailing list which you can sign up for here (bottom right).
The only way we can make a difference is by getting enough people on board. So if you know of anyone who might be interested, please pass it on…
