*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Concert/Show
Meeting Point: Bling Bar, Neufrankengasse, Zurich

OK so a couple of weeks ago I went along to an Open Mic / Plug n Play night at the Bling Bar, just off Langstrasse on the advice of a friend.

It turned out to be a really nice venue with a good setup, friendly staff, and the guy who organises the event is also a very cool bloke indeed.

So with this in mind, I'll be heading along again tomorrow, guitar in hand. Anyone who fancies performing, the flyers say "Bring your own instrument, play your own tunes. 2 songs max" - last time the weather was rotten so there was only me turned up, meaning I ended up doing 6 or 7 songs - some company in the performing stakes would be nice

Oh also it says "play your own" but covers are clearly welcome as that's mainly what I did last time.

So, hopefully see some of you there tomorrow - I know it's short notice but that's because it takes a fair bit of pestering for me to beat my embarrassment threshold and actually tell people when I'm playing live.

important disclaimer I've looked on the site, and they've taken down their diary so I can't *actually* confirm that this is definitely still on but I'll be there with my guitar in case, and the worst that can happen is a few drinks with friends in a new bar. Well, the *worst* that can happen is that it is on and no-one else turns up again and so you have to listen to me wailing on all night

Sign up, turn up, tell your friends etc.

A little bump for the thread, rather like the dull bump on the back of the head from konjins cosh for those talking during Terrys crooning....

Re: Open Mic Night, Zurich

There's a natty Sri Lanken place on Josefstrasse (other side of the tracks from the Bling, just up from Restaurant Josef, Cafe Caredda etc.) HashBrown introduced me to; white garden furniture for chairs, no menu, help-yourself-to-a-can-from-the-fridge type of place. And, as any fule kno, Mom and Pop operations are done with love - in essence, Fab Food.

I'll be there around 19.00. If anyone's interested..?

Tessiner Keller, although next door, deserves a night of it's own. The curry place is a bit more suited to a quick meal. Perhaps we should organise...

Anyone else up for Rotten Vegetable Pelting (that's not Terry's band) tonight?

The Sri Lanken place is called Nimmi. Here's the map link

See y'all at 19.00







What would you do without me...

Re: Open Mic Night, Zurich

Go hungry, and not get drunk every second Wednesday

Rotten Vegetable Peltings isn't my band's name, but it's right up there with Wrapped In Tinfoil and Green Is Not A Flavour as the potential name of the first CD

Hi, I think it's fortnightly, so the next one would be in 2 Tuesdays time.

Re: Open Mic Night, Zurich

Another fine performance by Terry at the open mic, and I am just sorry I couldnt stay for the whole night. Thanks for your efforts. Despite chanting of Terry ! Terry ! from the EF groupies, encores were limited as another band came on....

The Bling bar was a lot busier than last time and there was very little standing room even..

Open mic night's great, but I always seem to wake up with a muso infestation in the living room!
