A Scene In Between - A Late Night Panel and Music Community Hang - Ulster Sports Club - Belfast

OLD FANG & The Thin Air present:A Scene In Between - Putting Community And Pushing Forward At The Heart Of Your Manifesto.Belfast is a city steeped in musical heritage… right, that’s enough bullshit about the past. It’s time to cast the rose tinted glasses aside in favour of breaking new ground and making new memories that, in 2029, 2039, etc. will also feel legendary in hindsight. While it's healthy to have the past for perspective, it's always been happening now. We're a scene in between - we're constantly evolving, learning from those who went before us, we're pushing forward into a much broader more diverse sonic spectrum, we're opening more venues, putting on more shows and making more records than ever before but what does it take to make it all sustainable? It's all about community.Join OLD FANG, The Thin Air and a panel of special guest speakers on Friday 10 May at 8pm as they unpack what a healthy music community looks like in Belfast in 2019. The panelists include Rory Friers (And So I Watch You From Afar), Alice Kearney (Go Girl / Mirador), Nolan Donnelly (Zool Records) and Cheylene Murphy (Beauty Sleep / Honeymoon PR). This event is for everyone - whether you are in a band, thinking about starting a band, run a label, take pictures, shoot videos, write a blog, promote shows, go to shows or just like listening - we’re all in this together. Building a sustainable music community requires finding, connecting and supporting like-minded artists, working your ass off, giving more than you take, thinking outside the box and ultimately continuous, meaningful collaboration.Guest speakers:Rory Friers - And So I Watch You From AfarAlice Kearney - Go Girl / MiradorNolan Donnelly - Zool RecordsCheylene Murphy - Beauty SleepThomas Camblin - OLD FANG (Moderator)Details:Friday 10th MayUlster Sports Club, BelfastDoors: 8pmPanel: 9pm - 10pmThe Thin Air DJs: 10pm - MidnightAdmission £3 (on the door)
