ELAN Presents: Your Music's Awesome! Now What?! @ Brutopia Tonight

Posted by Ralph / July 27, 2009

20090727-ELAN.jpgYou've probably heard of those "Secrets of a Millionaire Mind" books that every single used bookstore would dream getting rid of. Right?

See where I'm going? No!?

I see, that's because you're THAT kind of person...you shop at thrift stores, have cheap meals at vegan coffeehouses, prefer vinyls to CDs and spend copious amounts of time arguing about the relevance of the last Sleet Toxes, Bravonettes, Phonic Youth, Gay Reatard or Pox Wolf on THAT messageboard which provides such an healthy environment for OUR scene to swim in.

You're probably also way above the "concept" of money and your indie band (a word you don't like using since it's been recontextualized by the Man after Kurt and cie burst out of the hole where they should've stayed...playing second rate Saccharine Trust etc etc) needs neither a guaranty nor a label to go play that punk house in Ouagadougou.

Fine. But what will you do the day daddy discovers you've been "ill-spending" your trust fund for the last 7 years ("but dad, I'm about to get my degree" i.e. double major in queer art history/eastern philosophy with a minor in fair trade coffee sipping)???

Where will your band get funding to print more pins and stickers?

Don't worry, I'll keep it simple: as soon as you're done uploading new pics on your facebook, ride your bike all the way down to 1219 Crescent Street (I know what you're about to say, but please, no jokes about drunken frat boys with no pants on....I mean, it's Brutopia...not that bad).

Now, take a seat (I said cut the crap, we all see through that lock of hair over your eyes)

Congratulations, you're now ready to be "educated" on funding, gigs, labels etc by panelists such as Shevaughn Battle (FACTOR), Dave Cool (St. Ambroise Sponsorship Program), Meyer Billurcu (BSTB),Mary Catherine Harris (Third Side Music) and Frank Opolko (CBC Radio 2)

And guess what? It's free ....i.e. you can spend all "your" money on (excellent) beer, get wasted and then go back home, unlearn all the precious info that you should have memorized and make an ass of yourself by reciting pseudo-Beat poetry, naked on your rooftop.


Free!
Tonight, Monday July 27th, 6-8pm
@ Brutopia Bistro, 1219 Crescent St.

Mudbox is a software for 3D sculpting and painting which
is developed by Autodesk. The popular epub format is written in XHTML, which is nothing but an advanced version of HTML.
If your answer is "yes", you may want to link your Facebook
ad to your Facebook page.

It is a non-invasive skin-refreshing technique and uses mild abrasives to removes the top llayer of your skin, including dead surface skin cells.
An aesthetician, or esthetician, specializes in skjn
care treatment, andd they can not only diagnose your
skin type and condition, but they can offer treatments for thhose issues.

As these methods were perfected, they extended the time
between treatments, but still there was no permanent solution, unless you believe 4 years of electrolysis treatments one hair at a time are a permanent solution.

Several of these games are worth some time and
are actually quite fun. The Alex Cross series began in 1992 with the publication of Along Came a Spider.
