Genesis Carnival 2011

 Genesis Carnival held a "Media Launch" for their Carnival 2011 presentation "The Nest" on Thursday September 23 at their new mas camp located at #7 Dengue Street, St James. I do not know which media houses were invited, none of the social media  Carnival aficionados got an invitation as far as I know, and I only discovered this morning that the information was posted to their Facebook Fan Page on Wednesday September 22 when I went looking for news about their band launch which was supposed to be held last night. 

The odd thing about Genesis is that in 2008 I  met Nina Mc Kenzie at TRIBE's Media Launch, both she and Ian get around to several band launches for the season. Nina actually came and spoke to me when she noticed I was on the laptop doing live updates. The question soon came up concerning me never attending any of their band launches. To tell the truth in the early days of this blog I bought my own tickets to go to these band launches, 2008 was actually the first year I got invited to TRIBE's media launch and Island People invited me to their's the year before that and both bands have since invited me every year subsequently.

 In fact I am still not invited to all  the band launches and if I really want to go to one I am not invited to I have to pay ( remember my refusal to pay $400.00 for Oasis Band lunch this year) like with Harts launch this year. I had already bought my tickets to Harts at the Mas Camp when one of the guys working at Harts recognized my husband and refunded us on the spot, Harts has also invited me to their launch in the past I might add. Special mention to Spice who have always invited me to their media and band launch , Brian Mc Farlane for the invitations to awesomeness that is usually his launch and to YUMA for their backstage pass this year.

Anyway, I digress, back to Nina Mc Kenzie's question. Quite frankly I cannot afford to pay to go to each and every band launch so the ones I am not invited to I have to choose based on what my readers are interested in seeing. On the roll call you will notice no one ever says they are playing in Genesis so it is not a top priority for me to pay to go to their launch over a band that others are playing in and eagerly awaiting costume photos and reviews. Like I said, this I am not Triniscene I do not get invited to the opening of every envelope.

So there we were at TRIBE's media launch for Birds of a feathers and  Nina stated that she did want me to come to their launch that year, she would send me an invitation to which I responded that I would attend and that the email address was on the Blog . After that nothing, no further communication with Genesis, digital or otherwise. I am continually surprised at the lack of social media savvy by these bands, and Genesis especially. I would love to know how they communicate with the media, their members and get new masqueraders every year.  How do you have a band launch that is not advertised even if I wanted to pay to attend? Where was it held? They must be doing something right however, because they are still around after all these years! 

As the ONLY band launch to take place in September I am looking forward to seeing Genesis costumes.
If anyone went to or was invited to either the Media and/or Band Launch please, let me know! 

TRIBE Ignite Miami 2010

Random thoughts on TRIBE Ignite....so you can view costumes at TRIBE Ignite this year, cool, I wonder if Triniscene will be streaming live again, why don't they make this fete drinks inclusive in Miami, $15.00US for a Johnny Walker Black and Coconut water is highly ridiculous and when they say ID required they mean it !
