Surviving Your First Music Festival Gig
Zoo Brew at the Memphis Zoo is an annual event that offers the taste of beers from around the world. While sipping some brew you can take in some local art from Skippy Gronauer and Susan Inman. You have to be 21 or older for this event and while you are having your cultural moment you will be helping the zoo with any purchases made of the art. This takes place Friday, August 31 at 6:30-9:30 P.M. For Members it is a cover charge of $15 and for non-members you can get in for $20.
Next, figure out how you are going to do ticket sales. The venue may have a box office and a ticketing system already in place, but most don"t. There are several websites that are made just for handling online ticket sales for indie concerts, or you may want to contact a company that specializes in event wristbands. You can even do a combination of both. Whichever method you choose, you need to keep careful track of tickets sales so you don"t exceed capacity at the venue. Once you"ve got these details nailed down you can focus on marketing and putting on your best show ever.
Play like a kid (and play with your kids, or borrow a friend"s)! Jump rope, jump on a trampoline, play frisbee, skip, play on the playground equipment, play tag, have races, wrestle, play catch, dance. Have fun!
JON AUER: I spent a couple of weeks in Minneapolis making a record with a band called The Melismatics who I think are fantastic. Beyond the music, they also inspired me with their work ethic with was superlative. I also just played with a band while I was recently in Singapore called Typewriter who I had a great time with. We played together, some of my songs, some of theirs, kind of a musical cultural exchange at a big festival wristbands there.

True to it"s name, the bar is a few hundred feet west of South Broadway Street. Crime can be thick in this part of St. Louis, so be observant and don"t flash wads of cash to random dudes hangin" out in alleys. My first introduction to the venue was when a friend informed me she had been robbed walking from her car into the bar. Her sob story had a positive twist though, because the bartenders at Off Broadway fed her free drinks all night!
China launched Venezuela"s second remote-sensing satellite, VRSS-2, into space on Monday.
A Long March 2D carrier rocket blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Northwest China at 12:13 pm to place the satellite into orbit, according to a news release from China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, the major contractor for China"s space programs.
It was the 252nd mission for the Long March rocket family.
Also known as Antonio Jose de Sucre, named after a Venezuelan independence leader, the satellite is the Latin American nation"s third satellite. The previous two were also developed and launched by China.
Designed by China Academy of Space Technology in Beijing, a subsidiary of CASC, the VRSS-2 carries a panchromatic/multi-spectral high-resolution imager and an infrared camera, the release said. The satellite will be used for land resources inspection, environmental protection, disaster monitoring and relief, crop yield estimation and urban planning. It will help boost the nation"s economy and improve the Venezuelan people"s livelihood, the company said.
The project was launched in October 2014 after a contract was signed between the Venezuelan government and China Great Wall Industry Corp, a CASC branch that provides space collaboration service to foreign nations.
In October 2008, China used a Long March 3B to lift Venezuela"s first satellite - the Venesat-1 communications satellite - into space from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Southwest China. That satellite was the first Chinese satellite used by a Latin American nation.
In September 2012, a Long March 2D rocket sent Venezuela"s first remote-sensing satellite, the VRSS-1, into space from the Jiuquan center - the first time China had exported a remote-sensing satellite.
A statement from China Academy of Space Technology said VRSS-2 was designed based on its CAST2000 small satellite bus, which functions as a platform for holding other satellites, and has a life span of five years. It said compared with VRSS-1, the new one can take larger and clearer images of Earth.
The academy said about 30 Venezuelan satellite engineers took part in VRSS-2"s development and production.
China has exported 14 satellites to 11 countries, including Bolivia, Nigeria and Laos.
Next year, Great Wall will launch Pakistan"s first remote-sensing satellite, also developed by the China Academy of Space Technology, according to company managers.
