This coming weekend, I’ll be playing in a music festival. Yay for music festivals! Yay for anything that combines outdoorsiness, tunes, and safe togetherness. Also tacos, I hear.
Which means it’s time for me to do my part and help drum up community support for this all-day affair, tirelessly put together by some very dedicated folks. Which means…promo.
I know of zero writers and only a tiny handful of musicians who enjoy promoting their own work. Taking part in an interview, sure, or maybe designing a poster if your artistic chops extend to the visual arts, but otherwise? Meh.
Case in point: yes, this blog contains clickable images of the books I’ve written, but when was the last time I actually tried to sell you one? Exactly.
But! This music festival is not about me; my set is 30 minutes out of a full day. It’s about COMMUNITY MUSIC! So with that in mind…ahem…may I present:
If you live on Lopez, I very much hope you can make it. If not, I hope you can make some event to support the arts in your community! I’m guessing probably no one where you live wants to self-promote either. So make it easy on ’em and just show up!
And thank you, thank you for supporting your local artists. Isn’t it wonderful we get to do this again?
Just bought tickets – should be fun! And yes, how good we can do this again, and how nice the weather seems to be cooperating for an outdoor event.
Woohoo! Thanks, Iris! I know you don’t need convincing about supporting local art…you’re the queen of that!
Oh, how FUN!!! You know we would be there if we were on the the island. I’m so glad you’re able to gather again and to celebrate and play music together! Have a glorious time!
