									Hey there

It is very looking very likely I will be at Outward Bound during some of September so by
necessity the newsletter will take a hiatus for 2-3 weeks, so if you are likely to have anything
to include please get it thru to me in the next 2 weeks.

Please feel free to forward on this week’s hit of Music Industry Info! And/or reprint part or all
of the newsletter with a credit to Temple NZ Music Industry Info Bulletin www.temple.co.nz.
Back issues are at www.temple.co.nz

If you have anything you would like included (FREE!) in the next newsletter, please flick me
an email by Friday. I don’t include gig listings, sorry, unless it involves an “opportunity” eg
open mics. Open mic info is at http://www.temple.co.nz/Temple_OpenMics.htm


Karen Says - This weeks non-music industry “tip”
No tip this week sorry as I am using this section for my own selfish purposes.
This week (there have been better weeks!) I have found out I need to move AND I had to
send my trusty stead (known as the windo3) to the great wreckers yard in the sky. So, should
you know of anyone who has a not too expensive 1 or maybe 2 bedroom place to rent in
Auckland or a cheap, reliable car to sell please let me know. Thanks!
