I think the three day thing didn't work, so let's propose another: 1. a full day so we can set up and give a lot of people a chance to play even if there's no audience yet except other loopers. 2. perhaps a loft space rather than a club? 3. if a loft space, perhaps out of Manhattan? 4. We use someone else's party-throwing system I looked through all the posts we've had on this, and this one made a lot of sense to me.

This has a lot of appeal IF we could hook up with people who were already doing this. There are a LOT of spaces out of Manhattan where groups regularly run art parties with music and that sort of thing. I don't want to get into the business of renting a Dumbo space... they are really large and quite expensive (thousands of dollars a night in many cases...) I think that IF we go this route we want to get a large, private loft where we play at someone else's loft space and they handle the door, beer consumption, etc. I go to a TON of these... in weird parts of the city, like Flushing and East Williamsburg (though not Staten Island) and they are usually PACKED -- good spaces, good sound systems, young intelligent crowds, amazing! We could do the setup in the morning and play all day and have specific shows at night. The space'd probably have specific DJs they wanted at points -- it'd be partly informal... A lot of them like Rubulad won't let people advertise but we can tell our friends and a lot of cool people show up there.
