Keeping Up With GrayMatter on Facebook!

Facebook has announced major changes to the newsfeed coming in the next few weeks. From the sound of things, posts from pages are going to be largely removed from the newsfeed, and you’ll be seeing more posts from friends and family, which is something we all want. However, you may see fewer Graymatter posts in your newsfeed. We’ll still be posting our events, videos and other news … so know that we’re still here! We have a lot of fun stuff happening in the coming year. You might just have to seek out that information by coming directly to the Graymatter page rather than relying on our posts to pop up on your newsfeed. You may still have the option of letting Facebook know that you want to see Graymatter posts by making sure that you’re “following” us (see box next to the “Like” button), and then by hovering over “Follow” on our page (under the cover photo) you can select the “See First” option. Then a bit further down under “Notifications” select "On." You can also sign up to receive our monthly newsletter. The easy sign-up form is available both on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/graymatternc  and also here at our webpage. We promise not to spam you with our newsletter or to share your address with anyone. By signing up for the newsletter you’ll be sure to be notified of upcoming shows and we’ll be sharing fun videos and more with you directly in your mailbox. As always, thanks for following along and being a friend of Graymatter. Have a great 2018!

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes at Cat's Cradle

We had a fantastic time at the Carrboro Music Festival this year! If you've never been then you ought to add this event to your calendar next year. Thousands of people converge on the town where 26 stages are set up and selected bands perform their various styles of music. It's an amazing musical showcase, it's an all-volunteer effort...and it's free! Graymatter received an invitation to perform again this year and this time we were booked at the legendary Cat's Cradle up on the main stage. The venue was packed, the lighting and sound crews were awesome and we sang our hearts out to an amazing, appreciative audience.  Here's a link to Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, taken from the audience on an i-phone so you can get a small taste of our spot. The roar of the crowd when we finished up our set...unforgettable.

ALSapalooza

On Saturday, Oct. 7, Grove Winery and Vineyards will host the ALSapalooza Music Festival. The event features live music by Graymatter, Lemon Sparks, and the Sam Frazier Band.
“The ALSapalooza Music Festival is put together to raise ALS awareness and funds for The ALS Association - North Carolina Chapter,” said Mary Luper, an ALS patient who organized the event. “It includes three live bands, a corn hole tournament, food trucks, wine and beer, as well as vendor booths with handmade crafts. It is also kid and dog (leashed) friendly. Join us for the best party of the year!” The cost of admission is a suggested $10 minimum donation.
ALS, often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The disease robs people of the ability to walk, talk, eat, and eventually breathe. It traps them inside a body they no longer can control. ALS is a disease that is 100% fatal and usually strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70. Approximately 20,000 Americans can have the disease at any given time.

Money raised at ALSapalooza will benefit The ALS Association North Carolina Chapter, which focuses on finding cures and treatments for the disease through global research and advocacy as well as helping people living with ALS in North Carolina and their families. The North Carolina Chapter serves nearly 800 people living with ALS in North Carolina each year by supporting all of the state’s multidisciplinary ALS clinics, providing financial assistance to people living with ALS and operating support groups and a medical equipment loan program.

Graymatter is proud to be participating in this event and will be playing in honor of Dave’s aunt, Jane Jansen, who had ALS and passed away in 2014.
This will be a really fun evening so come on out and help us raise some funds for this great cause! Gates open at 5pm and the music kicks off at 6pm.
Grove Winery and Vineyards is in Gibsonville, just north of Greensboro. To get directions and learn more, visit www.grovewinery.com.
