    As far as I can tell, only five of us showed up: Even the organizer wasn't there -- at least I didn't see her.

      Joana, Just after I sent my message I read yours. I'm pretty new to Meetup so now I've learned to read the posts beforehand. Anyway, I was still surprised to see what a low percentage of signups actually showed. It's also a bit strange that Meetup thinks that everyone who signed up was there.

      No problem. I know what you mean. That is why I work so hard to confirm and reconfirm attendance. It is human nature to sign-up way in advance and forget. I should have made it clearer that I was not attending. I hope you enjoyed the concert.

    I am so sorry, I will not be able to attend and lead this event. I have a scheduled class and I can not back out. Does anyone want to take the lead on this event? If you can arrive as early as 6 or 6:30pm, I recommend that you meet at Panera Bread around the corner for a pre-concert gathering. I will keep this posted for the group's information.
