I especially like to boast when a bunch of other people get credit (see the humility I displayed there?).
On Sunday night we rebooted the Chapels Open Mic Night. Previously I had run it and it sucked. The guys that played were awesome but I didn’t advertise, promote or even invite anyone. To be honest on top of two Sunday meetings (CCM:City & CCM:East) to set up and attend I just didn’t have the mental capacity to make another event happen on a Sunday. Consequently about 10 of us would go to Baa Bar and listen to polite Christians play Switchfoot covers. Yuck.
Thankfully for me J joined CCM. J is awesome. He took on the open mic. So he invited a bunch of his friends from his course and a bunch of musicians from other open mic nights in Manchester. 60 people showed up and 10 people played. I sat there and felt smug on J’s behalf. There was a great vibe and a whole bunch of people who have never been anywhere near a church.
We settled in, listened to some tunes and had a great time.
