the midwest music summit is a big music conference/festival/thingie here in indianapolis, july 21-23; i believe it's in its fifth year. i played last year, and i registered again this year.
i wasn't listed on the first version of the schedule, but they sent me an email a couple weeks ago that they were still looking for a show for me, and were going to put me on the alternate list. "there are always cancellations" the email said, and while they couldn't yet promise me a show, i would at least get registrations to attend the conference.
by somewhat of a coincidence, virago will be in town visiting that weekend (her last visit before she moves to indy at the beginning of august).
well, they found me a show; i just got the info this evening. it should be an interesting show, as the bill is full of singer-songwriter types:
saturday, july 23 at The Pub, 30 E. Georgia St.
6:30-7:15 PM Steve Northeast New York, NY 7:30-8:15 PM Matt Marka Minneapolis, MN 8:30-9:15 PM Adam Payne Boston, MA 9:30-10:15 PM Aaron Winters Nashville, TN 10:30-11:15 PM Jennifer Appelquist Los Angeles, CA 11:30-12:15 AM stALLio! Indianapolis, IN 12:30-1:15 AM Dark House Sweet Indianapolis, IN
my show is 21+ (duh; the venue is called the pub). cover is $3, or free with MMS badge or wristband. the wristbands are a good deal for music fans who want to check out a whole bunch of shows but aren't so interested in the "conference" aspect of it all... click here to buy one online for $25. you can also get them at the conference, but then it will run you $30, so if you want one, buy it now and save a few bucks.¶
