Cream: The Best of Philly Rising at the World Cafe Live

See the monthly winners of the Philly Rising open mic band contest at the World Cafe Live. There's no admission charged for the show. (That means it's FREE.) The food and drinks are tasty."

The next Philly Rising Showcase is coming up on Sunday, January 6. I will be out of town that day, but don't let that stop you.

    Definitely going to check this one out, but this is a showcase for past open mic winners? I just want to make sure it is, or if it is an open mic contest.

      You are the organizer! Why don't you just post it to the homepage?

      Joseph, I am sorry, but since I am not the main organizer of this group I don't have any information about your communications with the main organizers. In all honesty, I don't have any information about your efforts to post events. I do not control who posts events to the group's pages. I only have access to edit events that I have created.

      So, I hope you understand that if you want more control over what get's posted, you might want to start your own group. I can't do much about that here.

    I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO BEG YOU ALL TO POST AN EVENT! AS YOU SEE I AM TRYING TO HELP THIS GROUP OUT BY HELPING IT BECOME ACTIVE; HOWEVER, NOBODY ACTS LIKE THEY EVEN CARE SO I'M ON THE VERGE OF NOT DOING ANYTHING.

      Also, I know this time of year, just after the holiday season ending a lot of people are recovering from family events, getting back from vacations, setting things back to normal, which I can attest isn't always the easiest thing to do. I think the main reason we as a group have been a bit lax is because we're all individuals who are... Random. We're in a variety of locations, doing any plethora of daily life things. I've met some awesome folks in this group, but I think we all understand that life kinda happens. I do appreciate you jumping in and trying to get things started again, though.

    I need someone to promote my event please.

    Well I don't think that nobody is going to show up because this event has been around for a long time and some people don't even do meetups anymore or may not even notice that there is a new meetup in the making. When planning a meetup start from scratch so that people can perhaps see the new event. I'm not sure if I can make this one because most likely there won't be too many people coming out. I will email Mrs. Robinson again and I hope that she accepts what I have to offer. Take care folks

    Steph...do you just want to pick a date for Cream and see what happens? w/o a date it might be hard to get interst going

    July 2, 2012

    • Stephanie B

      Even when I've set dates for World Cafe meetups, no one shows.

      December 31, 2012

    • Stephanie B

      Well, shut my mouth. The next Best of Philly Rising showcase is on 1/6. I'll be out of town, but hopefully others will check it out anyway.

      December 31, 2012

  • Stephanie B

    Sorry for neglecting this event idea. Honestly, I've tried hosting World Cafe meetups for this group a couple of times already and no one else showed up, so that sort of damped my enthusiasm for planning another one.

    As I said before, it's a bit difficult to pick an advance date for this because the producers don't necessarily share that information in well in advance. Maybe that will change in 2013.

    Okay could someone please put the event up.. Also if one of you Co-organizers could reach B. Robinson and ask her if she can make me an event host. I would like to be a host. Maybe you can help me out Alex or Stephanie

    I will do this Alex. I'm trying to come up with a time and date. Plus I know that it's a lot of people here for I need to prepare for that as well. When you host an event it's not an easy task; however, I had hosted events in the past and are serious about getting this group up and running.

    I posted this idea long ago. It's nice to see some renewed interest in this meetup idea, but based on the poor track record, I will probably remove it. I've hosted 2 World Cafe Live, no cover charge events and no one showed up but me. Maybe it's because these events are on weeknights. Anyway, in spite of the low cost and the great venue, it seems to be a dud.

      Stephanie.. I see that you are one of the leaders. Let's get this group moving. Are you open to hosting a new event or will you allow me to host an event? I have some things in mind. Please contact me "[masked]"

    I would love to attend something like this!

    July 24, 2012

  • Stephanie B

    Well, the folks who run Philly Rising don't advertise the dates for the Cream:Best of... shows very far in advance. I called World Cafe last week, and they didn't know the date of the next show.

    If people are cool with just going to the regular Philly Rising open mic, we can do that instead.

    Sounds like fun to me!
