This Thursday in Edinburgh the Born To Be Wide team are putting on a series of seminars and showcase gigs, all under the title of Wide Days.
The seminars include HOW TO GET ONTO A FESTIVAL BILL, I AM THE LAW – ESSENTIAL LEGAL ADVICE, WHAT NEXT? PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE, SPEAK TO THE MANAGEMENT and a Q&A with Gavin Bain. Bain is infamous for being one half of Silibil ‘n’ Brains, two Dundonian rappers who after being mocked for using their own accents spent two years faking being American, earned a chunk of money and toured with the likes of D12.
There’s a lengthy list of people involved in the speeches with a proven pedigree on the subjects, so they look to be interesting and informative.
Following the seminars there will be a few evening gigs taking place at the Electric Circus, Sneaky Pete’s and Cabaret Voltaire. Confirmed to play are: Found, Meursault, Carrie Mac, Holden, Aaron Wright, Panda Su and Hopeless Heroic, Gavin Bain’s new band.
Wide Days tickets are available here, where you can also find lots more information about who will be speaking at the seminars.
