Dear Live Shows Folks: Live Shows is off to a great start, with 20 shows/meetups already held in the group's first 2 months of operation (on average, a show available every 3 days!!!) and 175 members joining already. However, due to varied musical tastes and interests, we do need more members/live music enthusiasts (as we now are getting only 1, 2, 3 folks going to any particular show, in most cases). Under the 1 of 100 rule (the 1% show rule), I figure we ultimately need between 500 and 1,000 members for Live Shows to really make this work (that is, so as to get 5 to 10 folks minimum heading to every show). Accordingly, I am requesting (begging?) your help with increasing the overall size of the group. Please ask your live music friends - and your friends from the other big social/multi-purpose meetups around NoVa/Metro DC/MD - to look into Live Shows and review the meetups/shows we have hosted (and those on the Schedule through Mid-September). If we can gradually work our way up to 1000 members, I think we can reach critical mass and always have a good group of folks attending each concert (as well as more organizers for more music genres and shows). My sincere thanks for your help with this. Best wishes for a safe, healthy, productive and rewarding August. See you at the Show. Best regards, Randy
Rock, Folk, Blues, Pop, Jazz, and sometimes Country! This group thrives on the energy of the live performance of singer-songwriters, classic bands, and up and coming musicians. We often patronize venues without reserve seating; 9:30 Club, Birchmere, Rams Head Live, Jammin Java and the lawns at Wolf Trap, Merriweather Post, and Jiffy Jube Live. Didn't buy an advance ticket online, that means you didn't get ripped off on the service charge. Need a night out with nice people? Sign up last minute and buy a ticket at the door from the house or from someone with a lame no show friend. Rain or shine, lets go see and hear some great music and drink a little beer and wine.
