Re: [britpop-54] Upcoming Britpop dance nights!

You didn't let everyone down--from what I heard it was the best dance night anyone was doing recently anywhere around DC. I wish I'd had the opportunity to go--I was out of town both times I knew about it happening...

I suspect Jacqui and Amena are right...perhaps another name, and another place, and it will have a larger crowd. I don't think you did anything wrong at all. It takes time for word to grow and crowds to build, and as I said, word I was getting was that it was great. They just didn't give you enough time.

I also think maybe starting to advertise far ahead of the date might help. From my vague recollection, I never saw announcements about the night happening until about a week beforehand...
