Social Media Cafe




social musicians getting organised




There are a number of musicians who are gathering around the social media cafe, so it seems like there might be a call to get something together, whatever it might be.






Musicians of any kind who might express an interest:


Brendan Cooper http://twitter.com/BrendanCooper / http://brendancooper.com - guitar, bass, done some home production (http://www.last.fm/music/Brendan+Cooper/Human%2C+Being), currently playing in company band. Interested in playing loud music and jumping around on stage and making a fool of himself.

What we might do


Open mike session

live jam

remote garageband swap?

or just a party

...just an SMC style get together to swap ideas and hang out

live link up video performance

Swapping notes (e.g. Bb for an E etc)






Lobelia and Steve Lawson, along with Lloyd Davis, are playing at Darbucka in Clerkenwell on June 3rd, and any of you wanting to come along can be on the guestlist - just tweet-me, and I'll add you to the list. Will be a good chance to meet a few folks...





Insert any details, directions, maps, etc. here


Events So Far -


A few of us met up at the Heights Restaurant on 21st May - Steve Lawson, Lobelia, LJ Rich, Lloyd Davis, along with a couple of others who haven't listed themselves here, and some other 'musician-friendly' social media types... Seemed to comprise of a lot of disparate conversations, and I (Steve) can only speak for myself, but it was really nice getting to chat about the mash-up of social media and music, with that as the focus of the conversation... A fun start, something to get us rolling!
