ok here is the deal. we have a show coming up at the end of July. I want to make this a very successful show for all parties involved. I need some outside thinking on this one because I don't want to miss a nook or a cranny. I want no stones left unturned. here is what we have planned so far. it is going to be a show we host at a local bar. crowd capacity can probably be about 120 people & the place would be fully packed. We have an opening act with 3 people, then we are going to be the main event. 2 rappers, 1 hypeman...we are going to end the show with a collaboration between the 2 groups. The reason we have an opening act is to get 2 different crowds to come together. Dj at the event to play the music...it will be one of 2 DJs (both experienced, we are seeing who our best option is still) facebook & twitter promotion on overdrive (hmu directly with suggestions @gkishere) word of mouth promotion on overdrive...DatPiff will have our music ready for listening purposes. were going to do a photo shoot & video...create a website with our bios & links to our music. we are going to hit the 2 main downtown party spots heavy with flyers about 2 weeks before the show. at the show....we will have custom clothing from our local sponsor. a good dude I went to school with. very talented cat...has his own store now...anyway he is going to design us custom hats & shirts with our logos/info on it... he will have his stand at the show so we can bring him traffic/exposure...were going to have him print up about 30 shirts that we will give out to the crowd throughout the night. everyone who walks through that door will be offered a cd with our music & contact information so they can keep in touch with us. it will be $5.00 a head to get in...we're gonna rock that crowd fo sho with our music. to those who go to shows, or host them....is there anything that we are not covering? I know its a long read. thanks for any advice you may provide.
