We contributed to the amazing Don’t Make A Scene magazine, masterminded by Rob St. John and Bartholomew Owl of Eagleowl. This field guide to putting on your own gigs features insightful essays and tips from the likes of Upset the Rhythm, David Thomas Broughton and Lost Map…
Putting on DIY gigs is rewarding, fun and often important in bringing communities of musicians, artists, writers, photographers and audiences together in spaces removed from the mainstream and in places largely absent from tour itineraries. However, without inspiration and information from others, it can seem daunting to try and get started.
Don’t Make a Scene responds to this need. A group of DIY promoters, musicians, label heads, tour managers, bookers, sound engineers and gig-goers from across the UK draw from their own experiences to offer advice and resources in the form of articles, interviews, illustrations and photographs. What results is a diverse, informative and easily digested how-to (and how-not-to) guide for the fledgling promoter.
Don’t Make a Scene was riso printed using soy inks on recycled paper and card by the Footprint Printing Co-op in Leeds.
