Join NARC. magazine for an informal chat about How To Be A DIY Band.
Newcastle based independent arts, music & culture magazine Narc. Magazine announce ‘How To Be A DIY Band’ event in conjunction with the local theatre company based out of Live Theatre, The Six Twenty, who are touring their show FANS, which is about being a music fan and follows a group of young people starting a band.
Held on Wednesday 3rd October, How To Be A DIY Band, has been inspired by the FANS show and aims to help new and established musicians and bands to learn how to turn their passion into a successful venture.
Speakers will be giving a brief overview on how to get gigs, how to run their own DIY event (and effectively promote it), what editors and journalists like to see in a press release and how to contact the press in general.
Narc. Magazine’s founder & Editor-In-Chief Claire Dupree said, “The session’s very informal. We’ll be talking about writing press releases, how to achieve radio play and blog & magazine coverage and even some event promotions tips! It’s only a short event, starting at 6:30pm for an hour – after which we’d encourage people to check out the play!”
