YES, WE ARE MEETING WEDNESDAY, August 12th!!!

AUGUST is our special HALF-BAKED songs meeting !! This Wednesday, Aug 12, at 7:30 PM! Everyone should bring 2-3 partial songs (a verse, a melody, concept, chorus, ). You share each one and then the group gives feedback on first impression, suggestions on next steps, and we vote—informally—on which one we’d like to hear you finish next.

Stuck for a second verse? Got a hook that almost works? Other seeds you haven’t been able to sprout?

Everybody’s welcome, even if you haven’t been to a meeting in ages. And we love new members and guests too!!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
