30th March...

Yes, yes, yes - it's happened again - WIRED! sees another great night of carefully organised and skillfully executed ballet of talent and musical prowess... Oh, alright... but it was a damn good night!

What a shame it was all over so soon!
Last month saw music ranging from Bluegrass to Rock, Acoustic Folk to raucous Blues. Many new faces graced us with some refreshing new styles and sounds, while familiar regulars provided a steady flow of some stompin' music.
If you were there last month, what was the highlights for you? What floated your cruise liner?
If you weren't there - well, you got some catchin' up to do!
A new feature, introduced last month - the WIRED! Theme Voteathon-a-Clapometer Thingy!
Everyone nominated a genre/style/decade, that the next WIRED! session would adopt, five of which were drawn out and voted on. These five were: Hardcore Death Jazz!, Punk, Heavy Metal, Folk Hop, and 40's/50's Swing. From these, the good folk at The Nelson, with all their musical refinement and cultured experience, chose...

So, next month's WIRED! - 27th April, 2011 - will have a Heavy Metal theme!
What does this mean? Well, it's all about interpretation. There's the obvious - play Heavy Metal music - but you could also take a Heavy Metal song and play it in the style of, say, 40's Swing? or take an 80's pop song and add some serious distortion! The aim here is creativity, something a little different.
There's no hard rule - so relax, all you trembling blues men that fear redundancy - the theme is entirely optional, but we encourage everyone to get into the spirit of the game...
For those unsure of how to respond to this Genre of music, here is a chart of appropriate gestures - so as not to offend...

We have posted all the responses to the proposed theme's, in the form of an AnswerGarden, posted on the main page. Please feel free to add your ideas, or vote for existing ones by clicking on them and hitting the submit button. We'll use these for future theme nights.
That's it for now, so go get your leathers on and start moshing! See ya on the 27th!
