Gig Alert: Bluebird Acoustic – Acoustic Rooms, the Rescue Rooms, Nottingham – Monday, October 3rd 2011

A wordy heading that nonetheless says what needs to be said.  Acoustic Rooms is the Nottingham venue’s regular open mic night “with a difference”, according to their website: “Acoustic Rooms seeks to unearth new talent such as Dog is Dead, Harleighblu, Jake Bugg, Frontiers and Maniere des Bohemiens, as well as put on special guest slots from the likes of Animal Collective, Trail of Dead, The Rifles, Tall Ships and Pete Lawrie”.  And, on October 3rd, yours truly.  It should be a fun night – and, if they have arrived by then, we can leave a smattering of our new business cards (smaller size + recycled paper = more environmentally sensitive than flyers?  I’ve been struggling with the equation myself – not sure what the best approach is.  Moreover, will people realise we’re a band when confronted with material that traditionally represents the insurance entrepreneur, the door-to-door toothbrush merchant, the clown at a child’s birthday party?  Your thoughts please.  And think on this, another question about presentation of identity that was highlighted by the last one: American or English spelling in this blog?).
