Great Cover-Up Fame Awaits You, Promising Local Musician!

Posted By on Tue, Sep 9, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Hands down, the Great Cover-Up is one of my favorite reoccurring events here in town.

First of all, it raises money for a great cause - the Southern Arizona Artists and Musicians Healthcare Alliance, which helps local artists in their time of generally uninsured or underinsured medical needs. Secondly, it’s just a ton of fun as local musicians take a different form for a few songs, whether that’s an act that has influenced them or something that’s just fun to play.

Right now, the organizers are taking applications to participate in the sixteenth edition of the event. It’s a relatively simple process (send an email to greatcoveruptucson@gmail.com with what act you’d like to cover and who the heck you are…where you’ve played, a link to your Bandcamp page, etc.), but it’ll be tougher to get on the stage this time than in recent years. Since this year’s Cover-Up will be only two nights (Friday December 19 at Congress; Saturday, December 20 at the Rialto), there are about a third fewer spots available than last year.

Basically, make sure your pitch is awesome, something extra clever that people would actually enjoy seeing.

My suggestion for the fourth consecutive year: Happy Mondays. Pure gold, I swear.

The deadline to apply is October 10 and we’ll have more to come on the Cover-Up as December approaches.
