With just seven days behind us, three shows in the bag and many, many more to come this month, August is without a doubt set to be the busiest month that Our Propaganda has ever had!
With too many shows to go in to detail on every single one of them, a full list of dates for this month has been attached to the bottom of this mail, along with the rest of our bookings for the year so far, so let’s focus on the main points, shall we?
First off, it was amazing to see the turn-out at this years’ Lily Fest on Saturday. We are not clear on just how much money was raised for the Hayling Island Community Responders, but the support shown by all in attendance was astounding!
Secondly an absolutely huge thank you once again to everyone who was there to support us at the regional finals of Greene Kings’ “Live At Your Local” competition, as previously mentioned, it was all of your love and support for this band that has given us the chance to play The Indigo at the O2 London in the national finals! But here’s the catch and where we must once again ask for your help… 20 plus bands have been nominated from the regional finals, however there are only 7 slots up for grabs in the nationals. As such an online vote has been launched and with 3 days to go (close of play Friday 10th), we need each and every one of you to cast your votes for us. It’s very simple to do – just follow this link, enter your email address and click “Vote for Our Propaganda”!
Following on from that, it would mean the world if you were to ask friends, family and work colleagues to do the same, in support of a cause we all believe in! Your email address will not be used by any third party – it is simply to identify if you have voted previously or not – the only time you will hear from Greene King via that email will be to inform you of whether or not you have won the £50 iTunes gift voucher that they are giving away to one lucky voter!
Our four other major shows for this month are as follows: Firstly, Friday the 11th will find us at The Spice Of Life in Soho, then back down to Southampton the very next day for Southampton Fake Festival, where we will be playing our own material alongside some of the best tribute bands around. Two weeks later on Friday the 25th, we will be rocking out at The Great Dorset Steam Fair, before the crowning jewel of the month just a day later, where we get to smash the Seaside Stage of Victorious Festival as the main support act for Saturday evening!
On top of all of these confirmed gigs, there are a couple of others that are in the pipeline that we may need to squeeze in during August, so watch out for those special announcements and keep an eye on our social media pages for the latest updates, we hope to see you all more than just the once this month but until then…..
