Last month I taped two episodes of The Sound of Young America live on
stage in New York City. It went really well -- we had sold out
houses, good press and industry presence, and cool shows with cool
guests. The Onion sponsored.
I just posted the first show:
It has some standup comedy, a wonderful monologist (Mike Daisey), an
interview with David Wain (of Stella and The State), and some music
from a hip-hop group called Tanya Morgan.
Anyway, we had about half regular listeners and about half
never-listened-befores at the show, and I feel like it was a great
marketing exercise besides just being a great time. If you have a
show with a good-sized audience, live events are really worth considering.
