Reminder - Fundit CD launch tomorrow night - Saturday 20th September
Hey folks, just a quick reminder that we will be launching the Fundit compilation CD tomorrow evening at the Joinery between 6PM and 10PM. There will be no live music, but we will playing a few tunes and hanging out. Please drop in to collect your CD and have a beer and a chat with us if you feel so inclined!
The Joinery Fundit compilation launch party
Thank you again for your continued support of the Joinery. We are nearing the release of our compilation CD of live recordings produced since our Fundit campaign.
Those of you who funded €10 will receive a download code for the digital release and those who funded €20 or more will receive a copy of the physical release as well as a a download code.
We are very happy with the CD and very much indebted to all the artists involved and to Cian McKenna and Clare Bell for their design work. Despite the increasing ephemerality of the CD as a format, we have endeavoured to produce a satisfying and cohesive artefact to do justice to the musicians featured and to you, without whom these recordings would not exist.
There are several options for receiving your copy of the compilation. We will be having a launch event for the CD in the Joinery on the 20th of September during which copies of it will be available for collection. The doors will be open from 6-10pm, please drop in to say hi and pick up your CD. Otherwise, you can collect your CD at any of our events, or arrange to drop in at a time that is convenient for you. If you wish it to be posted to you, please email your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Fundit compilation" as the subject line.
We very much appreciate the kindness you have shown towards the Joinery and wish to once again thank you for enabling us to programme what we believe has been an exceptional year with highlights too numerous to mention.
Thank you all again for helping to fund the Joinery’s 2013 programme. We are now coming to a close for Christmas and are looking back on a fantastic year of performances and exhibitions from some remarkable artists, performers and musicians from Ireland and further afield. This was all made possible by the Fundit campaign. It has also given us time to reflect on the work of the last six years and to consider ways to make this venture become more sustainable. We look forward to continuing to bring new and experimental work to Arbour Hill for the foreseeable future.
We are currently collating the recordings we have been making all year and plans are under way
to have the Fundit CDR / download ready by Feburary 2014. We will be in touch closer to the time.
So again, thank you and we look forward to seeing you in 2014.
Thanks & Rewards
First and foremost, thank you all so much once again for contributing to our campaign and helping to keep the Joinery alive. We are currently in the midst of programming for the summer months and there are some great events in the pipeline.
Those of you who chose guestlist spots as your reward may now redeem these at our live music events, just mention it on the door. Very occasionally, an event will be exempt from this, but we will post this information on the facebook event page and on our website in advance to let people know. If you are due a Skinny Wolves record either drop us an email or let us know at an event and we can pass it on.
We have been steadily building up our audio archive of 2013 performances and are aiming to have it ready by the end of the year. We will occasionally be posting snippets here https://soundcloud.com/thejoinery
Again, many, many thanks to everyone who supported this campaign to its completion and beyond. We are really looking forward to the year ahead. We will be sorting out all the rewards soon... till then, watch this space. If you want to subscribe to the mailing list to find out about what's coming up just go to thejoinery.org

Home stretch.. Skinny Wolves lps thrown into the mix!
We are nearly there now.. thanks so much to everyone who has pledged, shared, tweeted and supported so far. So just a few days left.
