I've created Facebook events for the show on the Song Fight! Facebook page here. Local hosts, please let me know if you'd like me to add you as an admin of the events.

Night 1 - https://www.facebook.com/events/350572142313508/
Night 2 - https://www.facebook.com/events/2232035920244069/

I guess we need to figure out the show start and end times too.

Thanks for creating the FB events! Can you add me as a co-host, please?

It would be awesome to start nailing down exactly who is definitely coming and how long we anticipate everyone's sets will be, so we can at least roughly map out both evenings and get at least the start times set in stone. And we'll still have to figure out a practice space situation depending on who's doing what.

I would love to see each and every one of you there, even if that would maybe make things a little crowded in the Rigby.

I will almost certainly be there, but I'd like to know when other folks are arriving and leaving so I can maximize the enjoyment of my booked travel. Plus, I really want to get in on a housing split, because of the hotel situation.

[EDIT] Okay fuck it, I just booked my travel - I'll be there from July 31 - August 5, and I'll tentatively book myself a hotel and figure out transport later. So, set me to 100% coming.

Here is a big brain dump about set lengths, show timing, etc. Hopefully there is some helpful info in here but it may just be a bunch of blather. :)

Historically everybody has generally wanted to play for as long as possible. For many this is the only occasion for which they perform live. (Folks are more likely to wind up going over their time than not using it all too so we usually have somebody keeping an eye on that during the show.) We generally plan to use all the time that the venues give us though of course that's not required. We set aside an hour for the live fight at the end of the second show, then evenly divide up the rest of the time by however many sets there are going to be. Some folks have requirements about playing in the first or second show based on schedules or availability or venue appropriateness in years where one show has been at a more acoustic friendly venue and the other at a more band friendly venue. That part doesn't apply this year since it's the same venue both shows. Last year's turnout was a lot smaller than usual and it's possible this year will be more like last year. I think everybody got to play for as long as they wanted to, with some folks participating in multiple sets, and we even did a rather long but very fun "Song Fight Tribute Band" set at the beginning of the second show.
