I'm available to help with the online SF 'live' editing like I did last year if others can organize the videos in one place to download. That was fun to put together.

I have requests out to all my preferred venues for July 19 and 20 or July 26 and 27. No one listed those as challenge dates so I'm hoping this is feasible.

I hope to have this wrapped up and dates announced by the end of the week to give everyone not quite three months notice to book tickets, lodging, etc.

I think this time frame will work very well for us. We're tentatively a go for either weekend.

Also, Thanks!

Both of those weekends are good for me as well. Thank you for getting on this!

Also a little birdie tells me that July 27 is a certain songfighter’s birthday, so if he happens to come then that can be an extra-special day.

I’m still working on this, but I have active conversations going with three places right now so it’s definitely happening just squaring away which venue on which night.

ROLL CALL: If Song Fight! Live were hosted July 26 and 27 would you…

A. Definitely come
B. Probably maybe come
C. No way no how

I have a venue secured for these days but I have different length options for Day 2 so I'm just looking for a quickie answer. If you already answered on Slack, there's no need to double reply. Just trying to hit as many people as I can to lock this thing down and let the other venues off the hook for both these and the other weekend mentioned previously on this thread.

Answering B does not commit you! I simply need a guesstimate. Thank ye!

Believe me when I say I will do my best to make it, but I can't commit 100% for sure yet.

I asked on the Slack about what the Saturday duration options are, if you want to discuss, I think it'd be possible to pick something w/o necessarily needing to take the pulse. We have levers to pull to expand/contract how much time we need beyond just attendance, like, set duration, set change times, and other types of performances we could organize to fill time if needed, like the tribute band thing we did last time in Denver, etc.

Yeah absolutely. Some of us could easily perform for an hour given the opportunity (much to the chagrin of the audience) :D

Sorry I didn't chime back in sooner, that weekend would be good for me and I'd be doing my best to plan on being there for that weekend of the 26th & 27th.

For me it's #3. No preference/both work. The FOMO is strong. Barring any unexpected emergencies, I'll be there no matter where or when, whether I end up performing or not.

We are a #3 with strong leanings toward #1. Actually, we're probably a #1 with weak leanings toward #3.
