Calling all local bands and performers:
Time is running out to get your submissions in for this year's Great Cover-Up, the annual three-day blowout in which local acts that normally perform original music cover other, more famous acts, in 20-minute sets, all in the name of charity.
This year's event will take place at Plush on Thursday, Dec. 13, Club Congress on Friday, Dec. 14, and the Rialto Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 15, and all proceeds will be donated to the Southern Arizona Artists and Musicians Healthcare Alliance (SAAMHA — formerly TAMHA), which you can read about here.
More information about the event itself is here.
To submit an application, just send your band name, what type of music you normally play, your top three choices of acts you'd like to cover, contact info (name and email address or phone number) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, Oct. 19.
Please remember that this is a populist event, so try to steer away from obscurity, and toward something the audience will recognize. (Bonus points for dressing the part, etc.)
The event's organizers (of which I'm one) are patiently standing by, waiting for your awesome ideas.
