fundraiser

Dear Forest events organisers,

I am unable to participate in your fundraiser I am afraid - although I would love to. I am running Tuberia that night at Old St Pauls earlier in the evening and am never finished clearing up till about 4.00 am.

I play every week at the Forest in 'Live Stuff' - an open session with members of my band The Tuberians and others, but I would love to be able to participate in bigger events too. We have a small but enthusiastic following among the regular Wednesday night crew at the Forest, which I am sure would carry over to the bigger stage.

Is there any chance of being given a reliable contact to keep me informed of your major events early, in order that I can try to make myself available in the future? I have to book my own events in about a month in advance so I welcome plenty of notice.


Best of luck with your fundraiser - I am sure it will be a massive success..

Kim

hum... Kim's gig raises some issues...

From experience it seems that a lot of us attend the Tuberia event and I can see it both detracting attention from the fundraising event and/or preventing many from attending Old St Paul's on the night.
I for one have never made it to see the Tuberians, but have been meaning to.

Is the date for the first fundraiser flexible, or is the 27th final?

what time is the Bongo night starting anywho?

I'd like to help out anyway possible... standing at the door... sweeping up bottles... swearing at people I don't like... some combination of the three... anything?

Reka is involved with the uni drumming society, and I'm sure they'd be interested in taking part (we might have to coax them with a few beers... it makes them play better...)
if interested, gimme a shout... I'll lobby them

any chance on getting some summary of events as they stand? Is there some kind of meeting one can attend with bubbly enthusiasm and over ambitious ideas?

Will there be excessive nakedness and inappropriate behaviour? Please?

oh and Sasha... you stole my guitar tuner... where did you put it? I'm helpless without it

Kim has brought to my attention that my comments encouraging reckless stealing from Tesco's may be a bad influence on the innocent youth of our little home away from home... (you know whom you are) I hope, here, to make ammends.
Stealing from tesco's should not be approached thoughtlessly and is wrought with danger. Before attempting to steal from Tesco's please consult with an experienced thief. For anybody who's widely read in the art yet is reluctant to take the first step, I am willing to accompany you and take you through the motions...
But remember kids... it's ok, and ethically justifiable, only because tesco's are evil... no way eggs are supposed to be that cheap... or fluffy paper to wipe your arse so expensive and colourful.
I hear that the novels they sell are not alarmed... (stay tuned for more tips)

Anyway, I have to go back to Hayek who's telling me that money's good and that everything will work itself out if we all consistently try to fuck eachother over... while Durkheim feebly (how's you spell that? Neil... work on live spell check...) asks why we can't just get along?

If you're bored... why not exchange the red plug with the yellow one and see what video sounds like...


night fluffy hippies...

it's fixed, it's may now so it will be in the bongo programme, plus i think sasha's started talking to djs?

clashes are unfortunate but inevitable, given the wealth of social lives of all the various happening forest crowds... just don't book the 22nd june. is the tuberians a monthly thing? if it's a major concern, would it be possible to see about shifting yours to another day?

these are intended as two one-off major fundraisers which could work out really important for the forest. if successful, we'd have a decent amount to invest in soundproofing (essential for the future of any forest events, nay, the forest itself) and kitchen improvements (bringing in more revenue to invest in cool foresting stuff).

there must be planning
soon.

hmm guitar tuner stolen? not sure i like these accusations.. will have a hunt upon return from the south... give me a bell gareth..number in the volunteer book and we'll try and sort that out for u.

yes indeed the date is fixed
dj's are smiley and convinced (went to see them play out over last weekend and playin tonight and tmrw)
think some big love needs to go out to those willin to donate their time for free...
there's some good people hear who do similar intereactive youth work to mikey and they''re really enthusiastic about improving the resources and relations
these nights could be huge
we need as much support n good juju as people are able to give

big love to the forest
sasha (in manchester sunshine amazingly!)
