Vienna Bandcontest First Round Completed

Vienna Bandcontest 2009Thanks to all friends cheering and voting at Replugged last night, Buddhuza was selected one of the winners of the first round of Vienna Bandcontest 2009.

It was a wonderful experience and I’m happy I’ve got to do that again in the second round on November 16.

Photos and videos are on the way and will be added in their respective sections as they come.

Once again, many thanks to all supporters and Reini for his outstanding sound engineering.

Hope to see you there next time!

Vote 4 Buddhuza Live!

Vote 4 Buddhuza Live!

Listen Live! is a TV project launched by Rustavi 2, Radio Fortuna and Georgian Film. It airs live performance of the Georgian bands you choose right from the Rustavi 2 studio, every day at 9:25 AM.

As one of the candidates, I’m starting a one-week shameless self-promotion in order to get you vote me ;) For those already fooled into it, there are two ways to vote:

Online voting: register here, log in and mark Buddhuza as your selection. As I can see, you can do it several times from one computer, but only once a day with your e-mail account.

SMS voting: send ’5′ to short number 1021. That you can do only in Georgia and as many times as you wish to spend 0.06 Lari ;)

Those of you English-speakers who need to be guided through the registration/login page in Georgian, I’m setting up a help page here

The voting will continue for a week and, if that gets us through, I’ll let you know when to watch and/or see online.

Many thanks and enjoy the sunny day! ;)

Like many others, Paul had a problem pronouncing Buddhuza, so he asked me to send him audio recordings of friends saying my name, which I did.

So, some of you guys might recognize your own voices ;)
