Hi! I’m Tobi. I work with Jon, running the MONSTER THREAD GROUP. I also curate the NEW MUSIC FRIDAY PLAYLISTS on SPOTIFY, DEEZER and SOUNDCLOUD. Part of my role is to organize the different THEME DAYS we have in the group.
Everyday we have a new pinned post, which sets the theme for that day. The Themes are meant to encourage interaction between members and provide a focus for each day. We encourage members to make use of the pinned posts as much as possible.
SUNDAYS : RADIO BIG ONE
Put THE BIG ONE on shuffle/repeat and let Indie Music be the soundtrack for your Sunday.
Post new / replacement tracks for THE BIG ONE in the comments.
MONDAYS : MONSTER HUG MONDAY
Ask for SUPPORT for competitions / votes etc.
SHARE your playlists / music
SHOUT OUT other people and their work
SOUND OFF about the music biz. Get it out of your system.
We will also have a special ‘FOLLOW BACK’ theme for each MONSTER HUG day, for example : SPOTIFY FOLLOW BACK DAY, members post their Spotify Profiles and follow each other.
TUESDAYS : FRIENDS OF THE MONSTER FRIEND
Jon features a specific blog / radio station / magazine that the MONSTER LOVES!
WEDNESDAYS : WORK TOGETHER WEDNESDAY
We feature the COLLABS PLAYLIST and encourage members to work together on projects
Remixers / Alternate Versions
Co-Productions / Co-Writers
Specific Musicians / Vocalists etc
Behind the Scenes Skills : Designers / Promoters / Reviewers etc
THURSDAYS : MONSTER HUG THURSDAY
FRIDAYS : NEW MUSIC FRIDAY
Post new music for the NEW MUSIC FRIDAY PLAYLIST

SATURDAYS : GENRE PLAYLIST SATURDAY
Each Saturday we feature a different GENRE PLAYLIST, from Classic Rock to Punk/Ska. Follow, stream and share the playlist. Post your own music and playlists that fit the genre of the day.
GENRE PLAYLIST SATURDAY is intended to encourage members to follow, stream and share playlists, which don’t feature their own music. The more playlists each member follows + streams, the better for THE MONSTER THREAD GROUP as a whole. SPOTIFY values different people listening to a PLAYLIST, not just one person playing the same playlist over and over again.
