Now that the tryptophan is wearing off I want to welcome our assistant organizers Lisa, Rachel, Tim and Greg. With three meetups going I am really need the help and they were kind enough to step up.
Some cool shows over the winter and the local venues heat up as the temps drop outside. With well over 200 members now I hope we can pull some good gatherings off during the holidays and beyond.
A few lessons learned over the last few months of doing this meetup...
- it's difficult to coordinate large concerts because of ticket purchase / seating issues
- there aren't really a heck of a lot of live music venues in Boston so it's a matter of watching who's where and when
- it's not easy to find genre's for all tastes
So I think the large concerts will typically be FYI notices rather than meetups, and aside from the organizers scanning the club calendars for meetups it's really helpful if **you** suggest events.
The message board is always open, let's hear your ideas!
