Message from the L.A. Rock Concert Meetup Group Organizer

Hello,

A number of issues to talk about. First, welcome to our newest members: Barbara, David, James, Jorge, Kristi, Annamarie, Patti, and all the others that have joined in the past month.
Looking forward to meeting you all.

Second, thanks to our latest assistants: Wendy, Mary, Laurie, Luke and AV for putting together some fun shows. Michael Schenker was amazing. So were B52s and the rest.

Next, some notes:
- We had 1 member leave, saying: " I am into punk, hardcore, alt rock and metalcore, you guys just seem to like oldskool". I appreciate her feedback, but I'm sorry she didn't understand the charter of the group. So let me state it here again in case there are others that don't know... This group is made up of each of us. We each have different musical tastes and that's wonderful. I fully encourage you to introduce new meetup opportunities. You can host one, or sign up as Assistant Organizer and host many! Those of you that like metal music, set up and host some metal show Meetups. Those of you that like punk, set up and host some punk show Meetups, etc. This group and the concerts we attend are whatever we make it! We are not limited to any genre or decade. The more variety the better. The more meetup opportunities the better. So far we've had Meetups to Reggae, 90s tributes, Woodstock heros, 2000's Indie nights, and 80's legends. It's been pretty broad. If your favorite genre hasn't been represented, by all means, make it happen! "Hosting" is simple. Email me for details.

- I notice it's difficult to communicate during the shows. Try to arrive early so we can talk a bit before the artists begin. Where possible, let's plan to meetup before the show for dinner or cocktails. I'm also thinking about holding events to get together for happy hours to discuss music or even do karaoke. That would be fun and we could get to know the group better. Let me know if you're interested.

- Front Row. Folks, during the shows, come up to the front row! That's where the energy is and the artists love it. Bang your head a bit, or dance. Cut loose!

- Now for the last subject...
Saturday is the MISSING PERSONS show!!! My band is opening for them and it's going to be wild. Here's some highlights:
1) There's a very good chance I can get the Group backstage to meet the artists. At the least we'll do a meet and greet with my group.
2) the price posted on the meetup webpage is a special insider discount ticket price (25% off door price). It's only available if you RSVP "yes" before 5pm Saturday.
3) and if anyone likes to dance, come up and dance on stage with us during our last song (which will be "Jump" by Van Halen)!!
Sarah, Patti, Jeanette, Matt, Johnny and Tina are already going. Get tickets now! Only $15 each! http://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Rock-Concert-Meetup-Group/calendar/10067642/

I like everyone I've met through this Group so far. You're good people. Let's get out to these shows and rock together! And let's make this group amazing!
