I've had an email back from "Stew 1000" with more details about these tickets. I emailed him for more info... basically the ins and outs of a duck's rear end.
Here's the info:
(What's it all about, Stew?)
The battle of the bands is something friends and I launched to get people interested in the festival at Gosforth Park we are arranging in August, where over 30 unsigned bands from all over the country have played for a chance to win the opening spot of the main stage on on Saturday and the other on Sunday giving them a chance to play on a big stage to lots of people.
The festival, The Gosforth Gathering, is in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust, and will showcase some 40-50 bands over two days.
(When and where, Stew?)
The battle of the bands will be held on Stage Two, at Northumbria University (Newcastle city centre) on the 5th of May (Friday).
The bands playing are El Bistro, Soliloquy, Beyond the Grave, Entanglement and one from the following Jimmy Two Times, Lazy Baker, Jonny Foreigner and Idols are Higher.
So 5 bands in all, it starts at 7 and they are playing on a decent stage with an excellent sound system.
The judging will be done by Tim Healy (Aufwedersein Pet) ... his wife Denise Welsh will also be there... a local guy from Destruction Records (a local label) and we are working on a few others.
(Any hot tips, Stew?)
My tip to win would be El Bistro or Beyond the Grave (there will be two winners on the night one for sat and one for sun)
(Show me the money, err i mean tickets, Stew)
We don't actually have tickets but I can send you an official letter, signed by me that will give access on the night.
(Seems fair enough... a letter granting a "pair" of entries to the gig, yup)
So, kids, if you're interested then I need some offers for these in order to be able to trade. Use comments link to send 'em.
In other news today, I've submitted this blog/project/adventure type thing to Google so hopefully it will be picked up soon!! I really have NO patience. In the meantime if you have a website or blog etc. It would really help me if you put a link to me (http://www.TwoRedPaperclips.com) anywhere on there, more prominent position the better but any links will help! If you want a link to yours in exchange then email me or comment letting me know the URL where you have placed the link to me and I'll get one up here super-quickly :-D
