Dear Readers, Music Lovers, and Artists:
As you have probably already noticed, I have decided to make this post a little different than the rest. Wednesday night was a big night for the Bars and Chords Ent. brand, and so I’ve decided that it is only best that I write a personal letter to express my gratitude to all of you for coming out and supporting my idea. So…THANK YOU!
The turnout was amazing, the artists were talented, and the night was live!
Although the event was officially for the launching of my website, the night was really about the artists. As I mentioned during the showcase, the fundamental purpose of this website is to promote Columbia University artists and their music. And that is why I decided to make the first event a showcase – that is, providing artists with the opportunity to share their music with all of you. For those of you who are already asking about the next one, have no fear – it will happen.
And for others who missed the show, don’t worry (or maybe you should haha). As promised, I will be posting information about all of the amazing artists at the show, as well as some videos and pictures of their performances.
Finally, I’ve received a tremendous amount of feedback from all of the attendees about who they would like to see featured on the website as artist of the month. Because there are so many artists that all of you want to know about, I will continuously blog about different CU artists who aren’t necessarily under the category of ‘artist of the month.’ So please do keep telling me about different artists you want to know about – I’m all ears! Also remember, the first artist of the month will be announced THIS MONDAY. Postings of upcoming shows will also officially begin on Monday, but I will be posting some that are occurring this weekend since a few of you have sent in requests.
Below are some pictures of the artists and I at the showcase. I’ll post the rest of the pictures from the night on the Facebook page. Later this weekend, look out for specific bios and videos of the artists you saw at the show. They are all INSANELY talented. “Can you say good music?” #barsandchords
Again, thank you for all of the support. I love you all!
