By motty (Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 10:21:12 AM EST) fun loving cowwqas., cd, cd baby, gigs, acoustic venues (all tags)
I have some questions. Questions regarding Paypal, regarding CDs and regarding acoustic venues outside London. Also, sofas.


These are my questions three:

1 - Now that the CD I've been working on for the last twenty million years (give or take) is finally up on CD Baby, they've actually tried to send me some money. Not much, but some. However, Paypal doesn't seem to have seen it yet, and since this is the first time that anyone has attempted to send me money via Paypal, I don't know if this is normal. Is this normal?

2 - The CD to which I refer is the one described on this CD Baby page here in case you were wondering. I did attempt to buy an ad but only later saw that these things were discontinued some time in February. That is because I am dim. My apologies to Mr H.

3 - I am hoping to organise a not-unrelated mini shoestring budget UK tour between now and Christmas, basically involving as many one-off acoustic gigs in small venues as, when and where I can book them. So please send me your shoestrings. No. That wasn't what I wanted to ask. Not at all. What I meant to ask is, especially if you are not in London, can you recommend small acoustic type venues near you that I might approach, and getting cheekier, in the event that I did happen to book myself a gig some place from which I could not get back to London the same evening, say, round the corner from your place, could I kip on your sofa for a night? I will recompense you with a copy of the CD and a drink. Obviously this won't work if you don't like me or my music, but please to PM if you do.

Timing, essence, etc.

if they conducted the transaction on paypal by MillMan (4.00 / 1) #2 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 10:48:33 AM EST
it should show up in your account instantly (based on my experience using them for ebay).

When I'm imprisoned as an enemy combatant, will you blog about it?

paypal itself will send you an email telling you that someone sent you money. If you didn't get that, the people sending you the money likely haven't done the transaction yet.

Looks like it... by motty (2.00 / 0) #8 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 01:04:11 PM EST
They've got 150,000 artists on their books there, and while I'm sure not all of them get a payment every week, I imagine that enough do to make it possibly take a while to process.

Cambridge venue by Vulch (4.00 / 1) #4 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 10:54:12 AM EST

The Portland Arms does a fair bit of up and coming music type stuff in Cambridge.

Cheers by motty (2.00 / 0) #9 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 01:05:26 PM EST
I will check that out.

IIRC there's a 24 hour Cambridge to London coach service as well.

Is not using a confirmed account, however, the money will not be sent over by paypal until the funds have been confirmed by a bank, which should really only take 5-6 days tops.

I'm near the Gladstone and the Drake by Driusan (4.00 / 1) #10 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 01:42:12 PM EST
If you manage to get booked there, you can crash on my couch. The basement of the Drake would work pretty well for a small accoustic venue, I think, though I've only ever seen hot chicks rapping to beats coming from an iPod there and other such pretentious, um, "artistic," acts, which weren't exactly accoustic per se.

Now, to be fair, I don't actually have a couch, but my floor is carpeted, and like a couch insofar as being able to sleep and maybe even sit on it, if you were so inclined.

Alas I suspect that I may have logistical travel issues that will make it harder for me to get there this year than I'd like. Next year, maybe. On verra.

Next year by motty (2.00 / 0) #13 Tue Sep 11, 2007 at 02:20:33 PM EST
I've been invited to a birthday party in France in June. Barring acts of God I'm going, and I'm hoping to book a few gigs sort of kind of around then for the vague vicinity, give or take several hundred miles in each direction. Would love to come to Switzerland as I've not been.

Of when you're playing gigs and eventually I'll be free to make it.  Usually, I'm not even in the country when you're playing...
